Sandwiches are HUGE! If your not all that hungry or just have a smaller appetite, order a half sandwich. Restaurant makes you think your in a NYC Deli right in the desert! Take a dessert home with you--great selection!

Chompies has the best omelette! I couldn't finish all my plate. Hash browns and a blueberry bagel came with the omelette and they were delicious. Wonderful waitress named Tonya was friendly and prompt in anticipating our needs.
