Description: When we boast that there is something for everyone, it's not without merit. There are classic items and ones that are completely original and unique. And then there are the wings... A lot of places talk a good buffalo wing, but the "Chegg" as it is now commonly known, truly delivers. The wings are big, juicy and available in 17 sauces, both Original Breaded, or Naked. The Chicken or the Egg has become know locally and Nationally for these big beauties. And best of all, the whole menu (breakfast too) is available 24 hours a day (in season). But for us, it's not just about the food. It's about family. It's about camaraderie. It' s about good times. So come io in and join the family. Join the fun. You'll be happy you did. Oh, and sorry about the lines. People dig us. But it' s worth the wait.

Busy around the clock, the extensive menu can satisfy almost anyones hunger. They specialize in wings, and episode of Man vs. Food was shot here. Portions ane large and prices are reasonable. Well worth a visit.

Went there for breakfast and lunch - it was delicious! Breakfast was tasty as well as lunch. The portions are huge and nothing is overpriced. Definitely going back.

Slightly less expensive than Uncle Wills. Huge omelets, nice pancakes. Really worth a visit so you can decide which breakfast place you prefer.

A lot of people complain about the crowds, but there is a reason for that! If you want to skip waiting, go for an early breakfast or grab take-out.

This visit we had breakfast which is always delicious - try the eggel or the california burrito. If you like hot sauce, make sure you try one of the many options!

The restaurant was so crowded that we tried 3 different week days to get a table and it was impossible. We ended up not even ever getting to there.
