Great home-fries, good coffee, and good service. Expect a bit of a crowd during the breakfast hour; the CrackerBox has lots of regulars, a very good sign! Nothing fancy, just good cooking and a hometown atmosphere. No corporate cookie-cutter here.

First, I am not a breakfast person, BUT I realize this place puts out a generous, reasonably priced breakfast, that is about as good as I have had. If you live nearby or are traveling thru in the morning, you will not likely find a better breakfast. I have not tried lunch, but I suspect it will be similar in... More

If you want a good home cooked breakfast in Carson City, NV, you must go to the Cracker Box Restaurant. Just off the main street in Carson City, Cracker Box serves large portion, individually cooked, tasty breakfast. Sit down, have a cup of coffee and find out what is going on in the Capital City.

I love this place and am a regular for breakfast. The portions are substantial and made with care. It has a real "Mom & Pop" feel to it. The coffee is great, but the fresh-squeezed orange juice is even better!

It's worth it. The food is great. It's a classic diner setup with good portions and ingredients, and it's worth the wait if you show up during Sat-Sun rush. Chicken fried steak and eggs with coffee. Do it. The waitsatff is attentive and never stop moving. Neither do the cooks who are front-and-center. I formerly worked close, and we ordered... More

Best breakfast in Carson City. This old diner is a must for any visitor. We like sitting at the counter and watch the cooks in action. Don't forget to bring cash. No credit cards accepted. Been here many times. A local favorite hidden hot spot.

This place is crowded because it's super delicious and reasonably priced! Service is excellent and atmosphere is family-like. I found tnis restaurant to be the "topping on the cake" with the day we were having! Very enjoyable indeed!!!

We had gone with family, not happy with food and service, forgot our toast we had to keep asking for coffee, and for the price of what you pay is not worth it. Will not go back.
