Ate here while on business in Modesto. I enjoyed the old county dinner feel to the place and the servers played the part well. Very friendly service and really good prices. I ordered the steak and bake special which was ok, but the steak was over cooked. They have an open style kitchen, which I always like, but I could... More

Friendly staff, great food, good prices: 20% senior discount any day & early bird breakfast before 8 am for less than $5. Just a comfortable neighborhood restaurant.

This little place is cozy, family oriented and friendly. The only sad part is the service is very slow and poor- They leave one waiting minutes at the table- The customer had to head down the waitress and tel her about taking the order I guess like various places they have their favorite customers, which they indeed catered to in...

We walked into Perko's at 1:15PM, just as one of the hostesses was leaving after her shift. She saw us come in, saw there was no one to greet or seat us, and kindly put down her things and graciously and cheerfully welcomed us to Perko's. In a time when too often employees are only too happy to skip service... More

I never visited a Perko's before until my visit to this particular restaurant. There service was nice enough, but my expectations of food quality were lowered as soon as I saw the microwave behind the sit-down counter. The menu was odd. The server opened up a huge "newsletter-style" menu made out of thin paper...whatever, I was hungry. I ordered the... More

The food is great and staff is very friendly. We use Perko's four times a year for our club meetings and they give us a room to ourselves.

There was very poor service and food was extremely bland. It is pretty hard to mess up bacon and eggs, but they somehow managed to do it. Will not go back. Go to Kountry Kitchen instead, better prices and awesome food.

I had never been to a Perko's and did not know what to expect when I stopped in on a raod trip through the area. The place was clean, well staffed with friendly people and the food was better than expected!

Breakfast at Perkos is great! 2 eggs, choice of sausage or 4 pieces of bacon, fried potatoes or hashbrowns, and choice of bread for just $9 after tax. Can't beat that. And the flavor was excellent. I ate here 4 times in the 5 mornings I was in town.
