“Two Locations - Equally Good”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

In addition to the restaurant on Central Ave. there is another on Kennedy Road. These restaurants are now owned by a family from Albania, and they serve consistantly good family fare at reasonable prices. I think one of the major pluses for these restaurants is that they serve breakfast all day. A favorite meal of mine. I have eaten in both locations many times and have never been disappointed in the service or the food. In addition, they have extremely economical prices. Good food at good prices, clean surroundings and clean bathrooms. What more can you ask from a family restaurant.

“An old fashion "down to earth" family restaurant with excellent prices”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Very good down to earth basic menus with many selection choices. While the food is good and service excellent, one if the real appeals is the very reasonable cost. Breakfast specials of $2.99 a plate mean breakfast with coffee can be had for under $5.00.
Highly recommended especially if on a budget. Service fast and friendly

“Great price plus super fast!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

The Sunshine Family Restaurant couldn't be a secret to the folks of Dubuque. I spent the night at the Hilton in Dubuque, Iowa and needed a Saturday breakfast stop, the Iphone suggested the Sunshine so I found it in short order. There were enough cars parked in and around the restaurant, ergo, I decided it was worth a try. The cost of two eggs, bacon, hash browns, toast and coffee, in less then a ten minutes, beat what I paid at a MacDonald for lunch the day prior to Dubuque. The staff, to boot, was very friendly. Well worth the eight to ten minute drive from the Mystic Casino.

“Grandparents love it.”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Low prices, average food. Nothing seems homemade and they give you HUGE quantities. This review is for the west side location.
