After seeing this was the #1 restaurant on Trip Advisor in Lancaster I had to tryit. Had a late lunch, but opted for an Chile Dog Omelet... It's like a Chili Omelet with a hot dog sliced up & folded in with the eggs. Surprisingly good. They use a quality hot dog with good spices, not a "filler" dog. Beans... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Atelope State Park. We were leased with the service and our lunch. We both had egg salad sandwiches which we heard they make when you order the sandwich. They were nice about giving me a sample of the soup of the day and it was so good I ordered it. We... More

This place is busy! We were there mid morning on a weekday, and it was packed. The place is a little quirky...quite a variety of wall decorations. We had breakfast there...the portions were gigantic...the hash browns took up half the plate! The other half was taken up by the chorizo and eggs I ordered...far too much for the average person...unless... More

Friends suggested we meet for breakfast at Crazy Otto's. I thought it would be crowded but it wasn't. Service was good and fast. Meals are very large and knowing this I ordered a couple of eggs ala carte and then enjoyed some of the hash browns and chicken fried steak off my honey's plate along with a biscuit and some...

The food is excellent. You get a lot to eat. I usually take home left overs since they give large portions.

I have never had any bad food, whatever meal we are eating. Be prepared because the portions are BIG. Pancakes as big as a dinner plate! Service was great and the place is always packed.

The food we thought was terrible and slapped together I asked for a salad and it was iceberg lettuce with dressing... we paid over $75.00 for 4 people A diner style breakfast with no flavor and a terrible tuna sandwich. Not our cup of tea.

The food is good and in very large portions, but the worst service in the valley. This used to be one of the best places to eat in the AV. So unfortunate, but I guess when you are so busy you're customer service gets taken for granted. The location in Avenue I still has good food and better service.

Thank Timothy B
