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.

I'm a big breakfast person and Otto's did not let me down. I could not eat it all and had to get a to go box. Seaver Jennifer will take good care of you. Worth your time to try.

I have been eating here for almost 20 years. Great food, huge portions, family atmosphere. You can't go wrong with the giant omelettes or the plate sized pancakes. They have some of the best biscuits and gravy ever

Lots of it. End up wasting a lot of food. Maybe consider splitting a meal?? Great breakfast and omelettes.
