A good place to stop in for lunch, especially in Herkimer where the choices are very limited. Excellent burgers. Much better choice than a chain restaurant.

Not bad but don't expect anything more than your traditional diner fare. I ordered the breakfast burrito and my wife had the breakfast sandwich. Both plates lacked a "wow" factor and tasted kind like I cooked them myself at home. That being said I'd probably eat here again if only to try their omelettes.

We visit Crazy Otto's frequently, either for breakfast, brunch, lunch, you name it! The portions are plentiful, and the food is simply fantastic! You get that home-cooked feel, and are always greeted by a friendly face. Very friendly staff, and excellent service!

We ate 2 breakfasts here. Both were excellent. The service was spot on, and the atmosphere is fun. Easy parking in front, with cheap meters ready to be fed.....25c per hour. Free on Sundays/holidays. Would be a regular there, if I lived in or near Herkimer. Enjoy!

No air conditioning and it was very hot!! The sweat was dripping off of us. There were flies and we had to keep waving them away from our food. The food was terrible and the service wasn't much better. We had invited friends to meet us there when we traveled to the area for a family reunion. It was embarrassing... More

Stopped in for breakfast before heading back home. Our waitress Kelly was the absolute best waitress, extremely friendly . The breakfast was delicious and very large. The coffee very good. The diner played 50's music and had all kinds of memorabilia. So many things to look at. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.
