People had raved about this place before it arrived in Lexington and breakfast is my favorite meal. I had friends who worked it into trip when they headed to Cincinnati so i was anxious when First Watch came. It was so busy the first few weeks that i held off because i wanted to hopefully have a good experience. When we arrived Saturday morning it was about a 20 min wait. Seemed like a nice enough place upon entering. Once we got our table we really had great service, drinks to our table and i went with the bacado omelet.... one of their "specialties" and my wife got the Eggs Benedict.
When the food arrived i was not super impressed, the whole meal screamed run of the mill chain rest. My omlet was ok, the hashbrowns (diced potatoes) were undercooked, many were flat out raw and the "housemade" salsa was canned somewhere, I would put my life on the fact it wasnt homemade. My wife hashbrowns were also raw, even more so than mine. The whole experience left me with the summed up review that First Watch = Perkins plus bucks per person
