We walked in a little before 9 AM on a weekday. No wait. Fast service. Huge portions. Reasonable prices. Delicious food. This is a must stop whenever we return. It was an easy, 10-15 minute walk from the convention center. Our party had the veggie frittata, pigs in a blanket & French toast. Everyone gave their meal high marks.

Do not be intimidated by the line outside. It moves quickly as this is a true diner by every sense of the word. We have eaten twice here. Each time has been outstanding. Again, I don't rate this 5 stars because it is fine dining, I rate it 5 stars because you can't ask for a better experience for their... More

If you are in the city for breakfast this is the best place. Large portions, delicious flavor. Love the Mancini's Italian bread for toast and the hash is great!

De Lucas is amazing for breakfast, but be prepared to wait a little while for a table on the weekend. The breakfasts are huge, but so good. I had the chunky monkey pancakes, and they were the best pancakes I have ever had. My advice is go there hungry as you will need any empty stomach to fit it all... More

We love DeLuca's. Get their early it fills up fast on weekends. Portions are out of this world as is the food. Service is fast, choices are plentiful. Located in the Strip District.
