Legendary Monster Breakfasts. Better be hungry.

It's a good thing I don't live close to McCrae's because I would visit way too frequently and undoubtedly carve off a decade or two from my life expectancy. The chicken fried steak is world class and huge. The servers are friendly and attentive. I've had better service during slower times than when... read more

A must. You must go here. Large portion of food. Unbeatable biscuit and gravy. Friendly and wonderful staff, home style feel. We felt like we were treated with respect, served amazing and delicious food, chicken fried steak is great, and had a great breakfast.

Bacon was somehow not very bacon-y, pancakes were chewy - either from a mix or overcooked or so one forgot the leavening. The eggs were cooked correctly and tender. Their portions are crazy but that's their gimmick. No one needs 12 eggs for breakfast, feeling full isn't the same as being satisfied or satiated. Tired decor, and sticky tables. As... More

Friends that live in the area brought us here for breakfast one day while we were visiting, and I'm glad they did! Portions were huge, and the food was delicious (I've never had hash-browns that tasted so fresh)! A big step up from the IHOP and Bob Evans that we have to choose from back home! We were able to...

It's only open for breakfast and lunch, so go early. The portions are HUGE! As noted in a previous review, it is the best chicken fried steak I've ever had. And there was enough on the plate for at least two meals. The staff will keep your coffee cup filled. The omelets are works of art. If the place is... More

At so many breakfast places, I have trouble finding vegetarian options. The green pepper and onion potatoes here are very good though! My family likes this place for the large portions. Classic American breakfast food.
