Oh my! The best breakfast around. I had the kitchen sink omelet and it was to die for. The potatoes were wonderful! The flavors were fantastic! I would never be afraid to take friends there.

A bit of a greasy spoon but some of the best places are. Nice thick crispy bacon, food cooked properly and quickly. Always fresh squeezed orange juice. Decently priced and nice people. BUT you better have cash or use their ATM at a cost because they only accept cash. Been here a few times and lunch is good too.

The restaurant is really small but totally worth the wait. I think it's the best breakfast spot in Carson City to eat at.

I had sausage and eggs. Their country potatoes are excellent. I was very satisfied. I chose this place because they were open a full hour before most other places (6am). Note they accept cash and checks only - no cards, but they do have an ATM.

A good old fashioned place with good food and good service. Wife was doubtful when we saw the building but really like it once inside, and the food was better than most places twice the price.

Cracker Box has been in Nevada as long as I have and I continue to love it. Been coming here for breakfasts with my family my whole life. One of our favorite ways to do start a weekend or finish a night of playing hard and staying out to late. Diner atmosphere with better than diner food. And the waitresses... More

Had to try out the local breakfast haunt and was not disappointed. I had dinner at J's in Dayton the night before and was told that the owner also had a fantastic restaurant to visit in the morning for breakfast. I was not let down. Popular place and had to wait a few minutes for a table, actually a good... More

Not only was the food (breakfast) outstanding but so too was the service. Point in fact I began 'breakfast' with a tuna sandwich with cottage cheese and the kitchen was only too happy to prepare this for me in the midst of the breakfast rush on the Memoral Day weekend. I then moved on to the Key Lime Pancakes. Yes... More
