This is a place which has very good food. They also have great prices, but for some strange reason can get unreasonably busy and the people. Parking can also be painful.More

I have been to many Norm's restaurants and have never had a bad experience. This restaurant is no exception. It was a busy Sunday morning, but the wait was short and the staff really hustled. Great food for a great price.

This is a chain, and we ate there for breakfast. It reminded me of a dinner. The quality was good, the portions adequate, and the service efficient.
