This place has huge portions! Breakfasts could easily be shared with two people. Their service is outstanding. Coffee is plentiful and hot. They also have a lunch and dinner menu. Their country fried steak, homemade meatloaf, and prime rib are delicious! Check out their Facebook page "Ottos Rosamond" for their nightly specials.

What a great "quirky" place Crazy Otto's Diner in Rosamond, California is. Our family stopped in on Mother's Day for breakfast/lunch on our way to the Indian Museum outside of Lancaster. The rest of my family had been there but it was the first time for me. We had so much fun. There were 12 of us and we had... More

We went here for breakfast, showed up right when they opened on our way to a meeting on base. I got the chicken fried steak and my husband had the hobo eggs. The chicken fried steak was amazing! Hand breaded and pan fried which is something you don't get too often these days. The hash browns are delicious too. Well... More

The owner and his daughter are very friendly! Portions are large and prices are great! We had fun reading the back of the menu (story) and looking at the license plates on the walls.

A charming diner type eatery, with walls covered in license plates. The decor was all about automobiles and motorcycles. Our lunch stop was tasty, and service was quick, efficient, and reasonably priced. A fun place to visit with great food!

Even a half hour to closing we had amazing service. Our service didn't rush us, he encouraged us to enjoy our meal. Spent time chatting with us. Our food was just what we were looking for.

Food servings are LARGE, but food quality and flavor is mediocre. Restaurant is small. Slow on refills. Salad had wilted pieces of lettuce and was floating in water, could not eat it at all. I have tried to like this place, been there several times. I come out disappointed each time.
