Izzy's serves the yummiest foods! They barbeque their own meats and the portion sizes are generous. The owners, Blake and Lorrie are as sweet as can be and they work along their great employees. Prices are excellent and it's El Cajon's best kept secret.

This place has great breakfasts and BBQ. Obviously all those people standing in line at Phil's BBQ don't know about Izzy's. It isn't big, isn't fancy but it has super nice folks and yummy food.

The Food is excellent, I love the Chicken Fried Steak for Breakfast, its hand breaded beef steaks that has the best the gravy in town. My wife usually gets the Cinnamon roll frech toast made with home made cinnamon roll. the only draw back to this place is that they are closed on Sundays. It is a family owned business with both husband and wife working there, They have fantastic food and the staff are fantastic as well

I've been dining out in El Cajon for 40 years, and I think Izzy's is the best breakfast restaurant in town right now. I've always like Perry's a lot, and the Pancake House (not IHOP) as well (all three family run), but I think that Izzy's has better food (love those create-your-own) frittatas and friendlier service,
