“Best Breakfast in Castro Valley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

This is the place to go in the valley for breakfast. This is located next to Lucky's and they share the parking lot. During weekends the wait can be long and the parking sparse. The staff is friendly and they happily accommodate special orders. This is a no frills place with good food and great service.

“Brunch Close to Home”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Doug's Place is very convenient to home & popular with my family. It has good breakfast & lunch food & is often busy. Waiters & owners are very friendly. I love their curly fries, fish sandwich, omelettes & crab Benedict. Coffee's okay, juices & fruit variable, salads very plain. The noys like their linguiça sandwiches. Still, we like it for brunch.

“Always a great meal at Dougs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

This is a local favorite. Dougs is a friendly place with great food and fast service. All the food is great here. My favorite is the chicken fried steak and eggs. The omlettes are excellent. The servers have personality. Regulars have been coming here for years. If your looking for a down home feel, Dougs is the place.

We have breakfast and lunch here often. The service is good and the food is great. Simply awesome omelets and in general, their breakfast options and sandwiches are great. Castro Valley does not have a lot to offer on the food front, but Doug's is definitely a keeper!
