The quality of the food and the portion size is perfect. Efficient friendly service. Free cookie. Prices are good for the amount of food. Definitely a favorite.

Like many of the review say, don't let the shopping center deter you. It's an older strip mall and and the restaurant itself is a little dated. However, our food and our service was great! The fish tacos were super fresh and delicious. The tea was clearly fresh brewed in fresh pots. Everything was very good. We got in and... More

My husband, myself, and a friend of ours went to the Recipe Box for breakfast the other day after reading some good reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor. The menu looked like it had a good variety of options as well. We went on a Sunday morning at about 10:00 a.m. The wait wasn't terribly long, probably 20 minutes. Our waitress... More

WOW! We were looking for a real breakfast since our hotel did not have anything worth eating. My wife did a search for local diner for breakfast, and found this place. We decided to try it...it was great. The food was good & so was the service.

Always busy on the weekends and especially after church you can always get a great breakfast and large portions here. The staff is friendly and wait time is manageable most of the time.

This restaurant is the typical :'hole in the wall" with good food and great service. If you're looking for an upscale experience, you won't find it here. Locals love the atmosphere and kibbutzing with the staff. They go out of their way to accomodate your dietary needs--not typical of most chain restaurants. I go back every time I'm in town.

Great menu selections for breakfast and lunch.... Love the Eggs Benedict and other breakfast items. Sometimes a bit crowded on late weekend mornings, but...that comes with good food!

This place was highly rated and that's why I came but this is a lesser version of IHOP. Even the menu looks like IHOPs items. The pancakes and eggs where very average. The server was very friendly but the food here is not very tasty.
