If you leave hungry then it's your fault! Crazy Otto's has been a family favorite for years. Huge portions and excellent service and food. If you have not experienced the prime rib and eggs on the weekend then you have not experienced what a real breakfast should be. They have something for the entire family. Visit one of them today....

Your stereotypical American cafe done right! Food is what you would expect from a cafe, good without all the extra seasoning that ruin or cove the taste. Great place for breakfast and big portions! Service is great too!

The food and service was great as usual! We were there to celebrate the birthday of a friend and we were with a party of 16. The staff took care of all of our needs quickly and cheerfully. The portions were huge so there was enough to take home for lunch. We will return!

Great food, heaping portions, reasonable prices. Almost always a line outside, but never waited more than fifteen minutes. Excellent friendly service. Unless you are starving, order the half portion. Full portions are almost impossible to finish.

We have proudly been serving breakfast and lunch in the Antelope Valley for almost 40 years and have been named Best Breakfast for 15 years. Our food is homemade, our portions are huge and our service is the best. We offer daily specials and are reasonably priced. We are open daily from 5:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We feature a special Child and Senior menu and of course offer wifi. Hope to see you soon!
