I had Eggs Benedict which I order at lots of places. Sauce was adequate but not amazing. Grilled potatoes on the side were dry and flavorless. Onion rings were good with really good, unusual dipping sauce. I think I'll try a another place before coming back.

I rated this 4 because of the long wait. The servers are friendly, and the food is very good. Their corned beef hash is the best I've ever tasted! Not canned, but made from real corned beef! I've also enjoyed their French toast. But I gotta say, whenever you are in the mood for really good corned beef, come here!

Sassy Onion has the best chicken fried steak in Salem! If you can't eat a GIANT Chicken fried steak breakfast, I suggest the Captain's Sandwich. It has bacon, egg & a smaller portion of Sassy's delicious chicken fried steak on a home made biscuit. All I can say is YUMMMM! Every time I go, the staff are friendly & helpful... More

Went here for the first time today with a friend and had a great experience! Lots of menu options plus specials at great prices. I got the "Monte Twisto" special that came with fresh fruit. Delicious thick homemade bread and homemade strawberry jam definitely put this over the top! So, so good. Also I love biscuits, so I ordered one... More

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon and found the place packed. But the wait wasn't long so we hung in there until a table opened up. Drinks first: I had the blueberry lemonade and my daughter went for a shake. Wife tried the marionberry lemonade. All were excellent. For our lunch we had the fish and chips, a sassy onion... More

While visiting Salem, Oregon, we went to The Sassy Onion on the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed! Try the French toast, but unless you have a huge appetite, only get one. We got the combo of two eggs and bacon or sausage. Huge portions! The French toast was the size of a lunch plate and almost two... More
