An old standby, Perkins in Madison is pretty good. The breakfasts are consistently good. Go for the omelettes and throw in some pancakes any time of day and you're good to go.

The hospitality and the food, our stay was at the "super8madison", and when it came time to eat, our options were many, but because of Perkins Family Restaurant was nearby, we made the choice to go there, and was glad we did.

Thought I would take my wife out to lunch today to the "Old Standby" Perkins. It has been around many years, and used to be a pretty nice place.

Unfortunately, I will probably not go back for a long time. :(

The only thing good about the food was the orange juice, which BTW, the glass had someone else s' lips on it. You could see the lip stick on the rim of the glass.

Wife ordered eggs benedict, she never complains. However; this was terrible. Looking at the canadian bacon, it looked like some really cheap spam or something. It was very fatty with marbled like fat. Taste was poor.

I had steak and eggs. Yes, this is not supposed to be a great steak place, but they used to be okay.. Sadly, this steak was something out of a comic strip. I suspect they are trying to cut costs on their food, and probably purchasing their meat from Acme meat supply company out of Timbuktu.

The table was dirty and sticky, the bathroom was very dirty, as were all the floors. The carpeting in the eating area was dirty and gummy. The ceiling tiles are all dirty and old looking, and in disrepair.

I would compare the smell, quality, cleanliness to a bad Waffle House in the deep south.

There is much more I can say, but bottom line, I recommend you stay away.
