The packed Perkins on France & 444 excelled August 17 when my brother and I met at noon for lunch. All Perkins have the same menu, yet this location's outstanding food freshness & flavor floored my brother. He raved about how the San Francisco Stir Fry Chicken ($10.99) was equally delicious as the stir fry dishes in far more expensive... More

This Perkins has a quaint atmosphere. Our entire experience was excellent. We were seated promptly, and we had an excellent waitress who was efficient and friendly. The food was delicious. This was a great stop for a family meal.

I've never been to a Perkins before and I always get a kick out of trying somewhere I can't normally eat at so I figured why not?After sitting down I soon realized my mistake, poor service,bad food but nice restaurant/atmosphere. We waited for so long just to get a waiter to take our drink order and then waiting for the... More

This time, I was accosted by the removal of the thing I've been ordering for 25 years (a patty melt on rye, that abortion on whatever "vienna" bread is can be anything but it is NOT a patty melt, those come on RYE). Thankfully, we had lots of time to sort out alternatives, nobody came to take our drink or... More

My daughter loves going here for pancakes 24/7! And echo am I to argue with such logic? It gives me a chance to sample their awesome seasonal menus.

Greeted right at the front door, and seated right way. Everything was good and the waitstaff checked on us often. Only complaint was the bathroom was messy and the floor was sticky.

I hadn't been to a Perkins for years! The food was ok but they had changed the menu quite a bit since I had been there last. I missed my breadbowl salad! Our order was goofed up but the server was gracious and took care of it right away!

We always stop at all Perkins when we travel you can rely on the food being good and a fair price. We split a big breakfast and still had too much. The service was very good and you don't usually have to wait to long for your food.
