“Local's place for good-value breakfast or lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

Galloping Hen serves mostly local Ventura residents. It offers the usual selection of breakfast and lunch choices, generous portions, reasonable prices, clean, friendly. Usually offers a couple of good breakfast and lunch specials. Tasty fresh soups daily. Prompt service, lots of parking. Happy repeat customers. Clean restrooms.
Not fancy. Red checkered oilskin table cloths, mostly tables for 4, holds maybe 60 people. Typically less crowed than the places that cater to tourists, but the food is just as good. It's off the beaten path, located on Borchard, almost a block away from Thompson in an old shopping center that probably discourages people.

“Try it and you will not be disappointed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

Tried out this place after reading some reviews about how great the place was. Sure enough, it was. A neat little place where the service was friendly, quick and a breakfast worth eating. I will recommend this place to anyone who is willing to drive out there and try it. I fed a family of 5 breakfast under 40 dollars. Not bad at all.

“This is one place that if you see a line on a sunday morning dont drive off”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010

I have been here so many times and they have never let me or any of my breakfast mates down. Everything is great. Service is always ausom. If you like hot/spicyask for a side of the Habenero salsa just the perfect amount of heat without blowing you away. You may see a line on sunday mornings but it usually goes pretty quick. Inside decor pretty plain but here that is ok always a crowd pleaser
