    I love this place! The staff are always friendly and the food is excellent. You will prolly need a box to take some home because the portions are large, unless you are a true bear!

    The menu is gigantic! So many options even the pickiest eater can find something on this menu. Breakfast all day and portion sizes are out of control. Definitely check this place out.

    Perfect late night/early morning spot. Their fried chicken + waffle plate is the best in San Diego! Perfect location right @ Washington street & the 163.

    Whole wheat pancakes with blueberry and granola! Splitting checks is not a problem as they will ask at the end.

    This place has completely crap service and the owner doesn't care if you're dissatisfied. I've given this place three tries now. I highly recommend staying away from this place. Maybe try Small Bar.
