Can't miss - the staff is not customer service fake, so don't go in expecting to have your entitled butt kissed. The food....worth every wait, every bit of snark...I won't go anywhere else. Super cheap, quick, and delicious. Excellent for a Saturday breakfast or weekday...More

Food was good and plenty. Waitress didn't do much to deserve her tip. Wanted to take away my plate before I was even done...

I was looking forward to this place BUT what a let-down! Yelling staff, fighting with other! Waitress with missing teeth, takes our order, grunts, and delivers our food like she's emptying garbage cans. Yelling continues, owner drops bottle of hot sauce which splashes up and...More

By the brisk take out service, I'd guess a lot of locals eat here. Full breakfast menu. Our eggs were cooked perfectly. One very hard-working waitress took care of all of us. Watching her hustle was all part of the experience. Our food was served...More
