Lived in Carson for many years and finally got to try this place, its super small and was amazingly loud, the service was slow and generally not interested in serving my wife and I. They treated the regular customers very well and it just made us feel unwelcome. The food was mediocre and we paid and left as quickly as... More

Busy place, for good reason. It's like a visit back to the 1960s, with fine homemade food, excellent service by real people (none of that canned corporate talk - "Welcome to *****. My name is Joan. Our special today is....."). No credit cards, but prices are reasonable. If you're visiting Carson City, there's a plethora of good places; this one... More

We have been living in Wisconsin for the past 12 yrs. and have recently re-located again at Lake Tahoe. Back in the Day, we would spend weekends at Sand Mountain, and on the way there, we make it a point to stop at the Cracker Box for one of the best breakfasts anywhere between here and Wisconsin. Now that we... More

Best breakfast and lunch in Carson City. You may have to wait a bit, but it's definitely worth it. Bring cash or check; there is an ATM inside restaurant. Staff are friendly and swift. The veggie omelet is out of this world.

We stopped here on our way from the airport in Reno to Lake Tahoe. There were 8 in our party and we all got something different and all were excellent. We wished it was in Tahoe we would have eaten there several times. Service was so good, we felt like family.

We like to eat different places when we travel and always want to give the local places a try. I was excited based on the reviews and like old fashioned diners. This was ok, have had much better. Staff was nice, resturant was clean, prices were a little steep, food was nothing special. I didn't eat my sausage as I... More

This is the best breakfast in town! My husband and I eat here on a regular basis and have never had a bad meal. My favorite breakfast is Adams Special. Also if you are around for lunch try the Sole.

Our breakfast was fantastic. We had the fresh squeezed OJ, a must have, the spinach, bacon, tomato omelet and the steak breakfast. The omelet had the perfect balance of ingredients. The potatoes were cooked perfectly. Service was excellent!
