My husband and I went one evening just to try a couple of things. I said I was not very hungry. We ended up taking our blueberry sundae home because we were full after our waffle, eggs and bacon. Very good value. Will go back, but will go back prepared.

I've driven by here a million times, it's been recomended at least that many times. Everyone has told me how great it is. My wife and I are constantly looking for a good place for breakfast. The food was just ok. We are still on the hunt for a good place for breakfast, this wasn't it.

We finally tried this place after passing it for 20 years. What a fun little surprise! You see mention of the breakfast portions and they indeed were large. If you are looking for breakfast for dinner, few options in this area outside IHOP and Denny's, both of which we avoid at all costs. Not sure why this place doesn't come... More

Loved visiting this place when I was in Everett. The food was wonderful and the portions were enormous. Prices were extremely reasonable as well.

Looks rough on the outside just because it's old but that's part of the experience. Tons of breakfast options, decently priced. My husband had the bacon explosion and loved it. All portions are HUGE!

I am originally from Everett, and used to eat breakfast here regularly many, many years ago. On a recent return to Everett, I was delighted to find that this restaurant is still here, and has not really changed much. The breakfast is still awesome, the portions are enormous (you will not leave here hungry), and the staff is nice, and... More

This place reminds me of a place I used to go with my grandpa in the early 90s. Old school vibe, with very affordable prices and great food. Can get busy at times - but believe me - worth the wait! Note: this place does not generally have seating for large parties.

My husband and I had breakfast here this morning. Portions were extremely large and inexpensive. I had the chicken fried steak - which came with two eggs, hash browns (or O'Brien potatoes) and toast. The steak was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The hash browns were done exactly like I like them: crispy on the outside... More

My husband recalled eating here years ago while living in the area. Tired of our hotel breakfast, we gave it a chance and then went back the next morning too. Huge portions, the best chicken fried steak I have probably ever had, attentive and busy staff. Their lunch menu looked good too, maybe on our next trip. We got there... More
