    The brunch specials here are amazing! I never order off of the regular menu. My friend orders the Greek Omlette every time. I also love the fresh squeezed orange juice. BYOB for mimosas!

    The seasonal sweet breakfasts are always good. At the Old Town Nookies, you can get a trio sampler of them... Not sure if they do that here. Never gone wrong with the blackened chicken sandwich.

    I love tasteless food and have more money than I know what to do with. Needless to say, I love Nookies. It's bland substance and excessive add-on for even the most minor things is perfect for me.

    Best Reuben sandwich. Owners, I'm told, have a thing for buying only really lean corned beef, sauerkraut that's not watery, and Russian dressing that's good. Bread is excellent.

    Best brunch place with my hunny. We "fell in love" here...great memories, great service, and great food all around! Definitely check it out on a weekend afternoon.

    Great service and wide space. The menu has a lot of choice. Their pancakes are good! The eggs Benedict, not so much. But it's definitely a place to come back.

    If you like burgers and you like Acapulco, try the Acapulco Burger - it's loaded with fresh avocado.

    The customer service is hit or miss here. You're dealing with snow queens as waiters. What did you expect? Food is good 95% of the time.

    Had the eggs with chorizo and was too salty. The beans and rice had no flavor. Maybe this bland food is what white people want in Mexican food.
