Be prepared to wait for a fantastic breakfast. The restaurant has moved and there is still a line, but the food is still terrific. Their chicken fried steak is wonderful.

Was in San Mateo early on Saturday morning, November 17, to attend the International Motorcycle Show at the Event Center down Delaware Street, when I noticed this place had a lot of cars in the parking lot for the 8:00 a.m. time.

Inexpensive, the place is usually packed for breakfast and lunch on weekends so you have to get there early

Went there for breakfast with the family as we were driving home. I'm not from the area but there was a bunch of people eating which made us to check it out. The food was tasty, the service was great and it's seems like they know all the customers names. Really a place where the locals go for great food.... More

Perfect diner breakfast with eggs, toast and delicious hash browns with optional onions. Very tasty. The hot cakes are not too my liking (too bready), so I'll be sticking to the eggs on Saturday mornings from now on.
