Allow me to preface this review by saying that the food can be pretty good; however, unbeknownst to me why this place is so darn popular when it's grossly expensive for what you get. There are some items that are more reasonable i.e. sandwiches but eggs, bread and potatoes are SO CHEAP and they charge SO MUCH for these things. Paying $12.00+ for a bland veggie omelet just seems frivolous to me. That doesn't even come with cheese...the omelets come with a choice of three sauces and they lack flavor as well. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate the whimsical environment and the menu is fun and mind-blowing in its choices but when it comes to the food itself I just don't get it. I'd rather pay less and get better food at Peg's Glorified Ham and Eggs.

We all loved our breakfast here. The menu was extensive and interesting. Two of us ordered omelets and thought they were the best ever. All of the ingredients were very fresh. One of us hates breakfast and had a hamburger which he loved. Everyone liked the sourdough toast. The ambience was funky in a fun way.

It's a little packed in there.. hence the name "Squeeze In". We had a large party and they sat us in about 10 minutes on a Sunday morning. The food was fabulous....amazing breakfast in huge quantities. The menu was extensive and fun to read because of the amount of choices and fun names of entrees. The service was great. Highly recommend. A local recommended to us.

My wife, sister, aunts, uncles, friends...basically everyone I know and bring to this place loves it. My wife and I live within 3 miles of the South Reno location and it is a blessing and a curse (because their food isn't meant to help you watch your weight of course, but who cares! - They do have healthy choices on the menu, but who wants healthy when you can have DELICIOUS).

Anyways, we love this place - all the locations have the same amazing food, amazing staff, amazing environment. We will go to Squeeze In at least once a week because the food is that good.

My favorite is the Racy Tracy with Otis style potatoes. Portions are large, but I put the "value" at "average" because the cost is on par with places like Dennys or IHOP, however, if you rate value in terms of the quality of food, I give it a 5.

The chocolate covered bacon is to die for as well and you cannot/should not pass it up.

If you're coming to visit Reno or if you happen to be visiting Truckee, you must stop by Squeeze In for breakfast. You will not be disappointed!

Yep, it's "eclectic" and weird (on purpose). Huge helpings (I couldn't eat but half of my short stack of 2 pancakes). Plenty of options for breakfast and lunch. They buy bread from Truckee Bakery and most all local ingredients. Price for 2 adults and one child with soft drinks for breakfast was $40, BUT we could only eat 1/2 of what was served! Really good flavor; very nice staff.
There were plenty of tables on Saturday morning at 9am, but it was filling up as we left.
You can't see the front/sign from main road, so it's a little hard to find.
Children are loaned a plastic basket of toys.
The original Squeeze In is in Truckee, CA; and I've eaten there too. Great for tourists and locals! They also have a loyalty card.
