“Huge Portions As Big as The Plates”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

If you want enormous portions at a great price Mr. T's is the place to find. I had breakfast there with a family of 5 and we were greeted and seated rather quickly, amazingly because this place was crowded. All of the orders were huge especially the pancakes (big as the plates). I ordered the house special, Eggs Benedict, it came with almost a pound of potatoes however, the eggs were a bit overdone, but the Hollandaise sauce compensated for the lack of egg yolks.
I enjoyed my breakfast enough I came back the following day to experience something else on the menu and I was not dissatisfied. The sausages they serve are as fat as British bangers and they serve two of them along with a pound of potatoes, very satisfying.

“Old style cafe”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Serving breakfast and lunch. Usually a line to be seated. Large portions served by old skool waitresses. Can be noisy at times.

“The best!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

It's a mom and pop restaurant with a great atmosphere and delicious food! Watch out when ordering, you'll get more than you think! The biscuits and sausage gravy are the best!

Their food is big and scrumptious. Allright service but great hospitality. I recommend it to everyone that wants a great breakfast and a lot of it.

“More of a Greasy Spoon”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This eatery is close to the freeway, but not that easy to find unless you know the way. The menu is pretty outdated, but great if you crave the heart attack food from the past.
