Old style service, Great Food, LOW PRICES ! Unbelievable

I've been coming here for 10+ years for breakfast. Denver omelet is $6 w/potatoes, toast and 3 egg omelet. Please try this and you won't be disappointed.

If you are in the mood for a nice family style diner this is a good place to go. They have a large menu and you can find something for everyone. It has a "homey" kind of feel.

Some of our family went to lunch at the Monrovian Family Restaurant. There were 6 or 8 of us. The service was good and the food was "unremarkable". Edible but unremarkable. Maybe you need to add ketchup?

This is where you go when you just want to get food and you don't really care how good it is. Where everyone in your party can have something they want. Where you get quantity over quality.

My husband and I were surprised at how nice the food was prepared. We have only eaten breakfast here. I like the benedicts and he likes the egg dishes. They taste like homemade. I don't quite like the pancakes because they are not the fluffy type that I prefer. All in all, we definitely come here when we want an... More

We live in Monrovia and occasionally need a comfort no-chain restaurant breakfast. That's when we head to the Monrovian. We both had to fast for medical procedures in January, and as soon as we were finished, headed for the Monrovian and split the #5 - a perfect amount of scramble to share. Eggs, onions, peppers added ham, scrambled (with hash... More

Since this place is right down the road from Santa Anita race track, my wife and I stopped here for breakfast the morning of the 2014 Breeders Cup. The food was really terrific - I had steak and eggs at a really decent price and my wife raved about the western omelet she got - it included guac! The wait... More

My friend from work and I came here for lunch last Friday. The hostess told us that we could order from the breakfast menu if we wanted (It's served all day). I looked over the Lunch menu and it looked like a lot of the items were fried. (spicy fried chicken sandwich, fish tacos, burger etc.) I ended up ordering... More

Looking for alternatives to Dennys? This place may fit the bill. The locals seem to be here, an older crowd for sure. Try the California omelet, cones with crispy hash brown's, toast. Or go with the huevos rancheros, authentic down to the green Chile sauce. The decor is drab, stuck in the 70's but super clean and homely. Probably why... More
