The burger is moist and perfectly cooked to retain its flavor. The sweet potato fries are crispy on the outside and are flavorful. They actually taste like sweet potatoes. The staff is friendly and the place is about as run down as seems safe. It SERIOUSLY needs new flooring as that doesn't bring a fresh smell to the place. In... More

We ate at the Crazy Otto's Avenue I location twice for breakfast while in Lancaster recently, once with a large-ish group of people and once as a couple. Both visits were fine, we didn't have to wait to be seated and the staff was friendly. The servers we had were efficient and, both times, the food was fine. I can't... More

Enormous portions. Delicious omelettes. Staff is very nice and helpful. These diners are quite popular so you might wait for a place but trust me it is worth it.

Stopped for lunch with a buddy. Nice classic old school dive. Had the roast turkey sandwich. Fresh roasted turkey cheese tomato on sourdough bread. My buddy had a omelet that was huge. Good ice tea. I will be back again.

Crazy Otto's has been one of our "go to" breakfast places for over 30 years. Original place by the Rail-Road tracks closed years ago, but this place is cozy & always packed for breakfast. Ortega-Beef Omlet is one of my favorites. Never a bad meal!

You will receive a generous portion of food, so much you might not be able to eat it all. My taste buds appreciate a little more flavor to the food. This is a nice place to visit from time time.

I have eaten at two locations of this fine local group of restaurants! What a treat-portions are close to logger sized and the food is great tasting! The waitresses are friendly and they keep the coffee cup full. The prices might be a bit more than the average however the portions are very generous!

My 2nd Crazy Ottos location. Like the location. Went there 2-day in a row for the eggs and hash. Best hash I've ever had.
