“dont go!!!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I made the mistake of eating breakfast at Winks this morning.When we arrived there was a line at the door and we said wow!, this must be great.We decided to eat at the counter and were enthusiastically seated by the counter waitperson.The problems began: We were than ignored for about 15 minutes.I finally said "may we order?to the waitperson.She answered of course and returned to take our order 10 minutes later.In the meantime the male cashier seeing our distress bought us coffee and the waitperson a very small orange juice.When we mentioned the small orange juice (we ordered a medium) the waitperson said that she would bring the correct size which happened with three reminders and 15 minutes later.Our food order finally arrived. The omeletts were good but the potatoes were very overdone and only half of the texas toast that I ordered was Texas toast ,the piece beneath the top piece was regular toast.The cashier and the waitstaff and patrons were constantly discussing problems with the bills and trying to figure out what table got what.There was a bottleneck directly in front of us(there was only room for one person to pass through at a time) with with waitstaff and cashier constantly bumping into each other and trying and to avoid each other.The whole incident reminded me of a very well choreographed 3 stooges movies.We finally after an hour in our seats stood up asked for the bill .Our waitperson said" No problem!"than took one look at the pile of six unpriced bills and left for an indefinite period..5 minutes later another waitperson asked if we wanted some help.We said YES and left.with a sigh of relief.I will never return unless it is to film a stuation comedy .

“Englewood friendly-flavorful food at good prices”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We ate here last summer and again today. This last visit we entered a small restaurant full of seemingly happy customers at noon. We both had breakfasts: country scramble and Wink's omelet. Both were full of flavor. We were served promptly and happily despite a heavy load of customers. While waiting, the server plied us with great coffee. My only caveat is the walls, ceilings and bathrooms are tired and need updating. That caveat would not prevent us from returning for one of the many other dishes!

“What did you expect?”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Terrible service, incomplete meal and the food was not that good .It was not busy but the waitress could care less to ask if everything was OK . For that kind of money I'll be dining elsewhere in the future

“Fast and delicious”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

While the restaurant is small and not fancy the food is very good, inexpensive and the service fast and friendly! Three couples enjoyed the fish dinners with fries and slaw which was an evening special. Just can't beat the meal for the price as the portions are generous. It was casual and fun!
