This full-service, breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant, owned & operated by the Benitez family has served travelers to Moreno Valley, and locals, for over 15 years. Their phone number is 951-485-1240 but there is no internet site for them. They serve beer and offer take out. They have the best pancakes in the whole city of Moreno Valley, even superior to the IHOP in town. They share the property with a Holiday Inn Express and are close to other motels and near freeway interchanges. They deserve to be listed on TripAdvisor as a suitable eatery for locals and visitors alike. Thanks. MonkeyOnTheWing (Michael McCoy)

Comfort Food

Food is good, Menu has lots of choices. Portions are generous. Service is good and staff friendly. A gratuity is on your bill so when you pay it, you are paying the tip assigned by the restaurant. Several times I didn't see that and paid a tip on top of the gratuity already charged. Be aware... read more

We're never disappointed when we eat here. The food is great, the service is quick, staff is friendly and helpful. Very affordable, large servings only complaint is the parking. Since this place is so great, it's always full so parking is limited.

Not trying to be harsh, but this was probably the worst breakfast I have had in a very long time. Surprising too, since the other two times I have gone to Brandon's for breakfast (about 5-6 months ago) it was pretty decent food. This time I felt like the food was not of very high quality and utensils and glassware... More

I went to this diner the first time it opened. It has dropped in service and food delivery. Must be a problem as not as busy as less popular restaurants. Heavy on Mexican food but used to be American food.

If your looking for a salad, Brandon's has the best tuna salad. We make a special trip just for the salad. They also have an outstanding beef sandwich which I always ask for the au jus go with it. Their breakfast is also great and a good price. If you want a drink they have a full service bar.

I always go to Brandon's for happy hour the only downfall is that the girls in the bar area always seem to be upset and just rude. I always love to get Vanessa but I never see her in the bar area anymore :( it sometimes takes forever to get a second round of drinks. Good prices tho, hopefully they... More
