A great place to eat, plenty of food for the money. Atmosphere is a bit of bar and a bit of family. Very friendly and prompt service. The menu looked good for meals other than breakfast as well. Breakfast potatoes are awesome. We would go...More

We had huevos rancheros and the simple breakfast with sausage, eggs, hash browns and toast. Our server was friendly enough and the food was what you’d expect - decent but didn’t really stand out. There were a few menu items that looked very interesting (chicken...More

We found this restaurant right off the broad walk of Mission Bay. There was a huge banner that said "Voted Best Breakfast" and they definitely weren't lying. They have a great cocktail menu and the food portions were huge. The service was great and the...More

Great coffee, huuuuuuge pancakes (the Hubcaps), fun atmosphere. What more do you need?! We happened upon The Truckstop on a morning walk from our hotel. We enjoyed it so much that we brought our travel companions back with us the next morning. I had the...More

Came in on a Sunday morning for breakfast with a friend. The theme of the place speaks for itself with the name of the place. When you order coffee you get your own pot for the table and substitutions are welcomed. I got the traditional...More
