Sloppy Gene's is never going to win culinary awards or set new standards for its décor.It serves decent,if not very healthy,food for a fair price.It is a throwback to a past time when every downtown had little mom and pop diners like this.It was formerly a Maid Rite,so you will find a lot of the same menu items,just with a different name.If you go in with these expectations,you will not be disappointed...

Breakfast:
Bacon did not taste like bacon, not certain what it was. Over-easy eggs were acceptable. Toast average, a little under toasted. Hash browns were not edible; they tasted odd (perhaps the butter or whatever was used to fry it in was past it's out sell by date). Coffee was good. We were the only two people in the café so service was good and pleasant. The café was not overly clean.

If you're rating this as a "restaurant" its not going to rate high. Its very small, only serves breakfast and lunch, and the food isn't real fancy or intended to be.
That said, its THE place to go if you're in the mood for some good ole fashioned maid rites, omlettes, sandwhiches, etc.
The prices are definitely reasonable and teh staff are always very friendly. This is a place that I wish would expand because they get a lot of business but its just so small.

Good place to pick up lunch.

If I rated this place as a restuarant, I would give it 2 or 3 stars. But not because of service, just because of size, location and interior.
But I give it 5 stars for the niche category thsi place is in.

This was previously a Maid Rite. Loose meat. They have this awesome "heart attack" omlett..just my name for it but it SO good.. Omlett stuffed with hash browns, maid rite and topped with white gravy with maid rite in it ! My husband and I get it to go and split it! Plenty for us and he's a big eater!!
