Great breakfast

Went here yesterday for the first time. Fast and friendly service and good food. Need to pay with cash or local check (no credit cards accepted). Would go back again. The sunroom was cozy, even on a bitterly cold February morning.

This was my wife's first visit and my first in a long time to this longtime Burlington landmark. It is a small comfortable restaurant with an abundance of local flavor.

Breafkast was fast, fresh, and well made. Cash or check only but they do have an ATM. For diner style breakfast this is top notch. Well made Eggs Benedict, good hashbrowns and sausage. French toast was ok.

We showed up at about 11:45, they closed at 12:00 for the day. They welcomed us in anyway, our order showed up steaming hot and super fresh minutes after ordering and was one of the best skillets I've had in a long time. Staff was great and friendly! Definately worth the trip

Large portions of pork loin sandwich was chicken tenders were fresh and hot. The potato cheese soup was thick and full of potatoes.... More

Town Fryer is a family tradition, we visit family in Burlington, we go for breakfast at the Town Fryer. Food and service for breakfast was great, good prices. You won't find anything fancy there, but you can some Mexican breakfast items if you choose.
