The BEST diner in the South BAY! Been going here for years, the food is always good and they serve breakfast all day (Except for waffles). The fried chicken dinner is my favorite, check out the specials especially the terry plate, chicken or beef one of the best around.

Hot N Tot is a greasy spoon restaurant, I mean this in a complimentary way. The menu has a wide selection for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Breakfast is prepared to perfection, the service is fast and efficient even during the rush hour times on the weekend. Lunch and dinner are good, not fantastic but priced accordingly and the portions are... More

Great spot for breakfast. You'll find a significant choice of options ranging from hearty to healthy. Omelettes and pancakes are delicious; the orange juice and veggies are fresh; and portions are generous.

I have been going for several years to Hot N Tot for breakfast. My favorite dish is their chicken fried steak. They also make good eggs benedict and a ham steak dish that covers the plate. Overall they have a large variety of egg and pancake dishes that will please anyone's appetite.

The food is average, breakfast is your best bet (hard to mess up a waffle and orange juice). This is local to me, but I rarely eat there.

Been coming here for breakfast north of 20years. Hands have changed a couple times but good home cooking and great service has not. Omelets, waffles, pancakes, skillets Hot N Tot has all the breakfast staples. Don't forget the Steak and eggs, Oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar or the Ham Steak and eggs - now there's a meal.

All the food we ordered was good and as ordered. Prices are what you would expect for and dineron the area. The waitress was very pleasant and patient with our large family. The only down side to the resturaunt is the view, unless you enjoy watching traffic on pch.

This is a great old school diner that serves an awesome breakfast. I usually get the eggs Benedict and biscuits and gravy but everything I've tried has been good. You will definitely leave full.
