My favorites are the Gaviota, French toast, and corned beef hash and eggs. Every meal is well prepared, never had any issues with food quality or preparation. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The owner is often present and engaged with customers and staff.

No matter how many times you go to American Host, you'll never experience a bad meal. Best service by far. Portions are plenty. Only bad thing is, if you hit it at the wrong time, you may have a wait...but well worth it!

The food and service are fantastic and you can't beat the price. As an old veteran I love my SOS and you won't find any better than the American Hosts.
