24 hour jumbo pancakes for like $6. For those pancake dinner nights! :)
by Juan Ramírez V
Cozy, and usually busy. Food is good but portions are huge. Share if you don't eat your weight in food!
by Philip T.
Limited menu. Lots of food. Always a line but worth the wait.
by David N.
Even if you are full after your meal, the custard dessert is a must.
by Ryan C.
I ordered the French toast. Couldn't eat it all (6 pieces!) but man, it was good. Sprinkle of cinnamon and powdered sugar--check!
by Sarah Spagnolo
Bacon and cheese omelette. Crispy, cheesy, good!
by James T
The Original of all Originals! The best place for breakfast and Pancakes in LA

Bacon and eggs !!!
by Robert N.
Salsa is the best
by Harry M.
Do yourself a favor and get the half order of steak and eggs with potatoes. Best ham steak I've had in a long while, tasty homefries and great sourdough toast. Breakfast of Champions.

It's all about the counter

OMG great coffee, fresh pancakes, crispy bacon!
by Nick P.
The 90-year-old diner was bought up by former mayor Richard Riordan in 1981, who fell in love with its ruthlessly efficient service. We like the fact that you never know who you'll bump into
We always end up returning again and again through its lockless doors. Maybe it's because it has such a grounding presence in one of the most rapidly changing areas of the city.
Saw a huge line my first day in LA and I knew I had to try it! The french toast is delicious!!
by Vanessa Valentin
Portions are way too big. Steak with mashed potatoes, greenbeans and coleslaw is delicious.
Be prepared to eat yourself silly
by Laurel K.
The well done steak was a wee bit tough to deal with but tasted good, there's no sauce, I guess that's the Traditional American way. But the omllete-kind potatoe that came with the steak was great.
by Naeem Rahimi
been going here since I was a kid. unusual atmosphere, great service, good food. an LA tradition.
by Nancilou Biscotti
Bacon & eggs. The best!
by Michael L.
Open 24 hours omelet is great
by christian arzate
The bacon & cheese omelet was delicious. It came with the most perfectly cooked hash browns. Their pancakes were great as well.
by Blanca B.
Excellent ham & cheese omellet.
by Rob T.
Great place to hit up after the club since they're open 24 hours. Remember this is a cash only place.
by Jen V.
Amazing portions - go hungry!
by Katherine W.
Best breakfast place in LA. Seat in the counter and ask for Pepe. He is awesome! Try everything you can, pancakes are glorious, coleslaw to die for. Hashbrowns are so good.
by Bela P.
It's cash only. There's an ATM, but it's kinda shady.
by Kyle B.
by Jason B.

Try the Ham And Eggs - with hash browns and buttermilk pancakes. (via @Foodspotting)
by Harry M.
There will be a wait, it's worth it!
This is a cash only place so you better hit up the atm before coming.
by Jen V.
This place is just trash. Full of ghetto and white trash people. I went once (my bf insisted to go) and im not going back again. Avoid it !
by Marce P.
Don Roberto es Maravilloso!!
by Martha S.
The long line on the left of the building is for table seating, the much shorter line on the right is for counter seating. This is a quicker option for 1 or 2 people.
by loran j.
This food is blah. This restaurant is dingy. The food is over priced. The service sucks. Never again.
by R. Michael T.

Based on other reviews I DID try the sourdough toast; fantastic choice. I ordered the french toast and it was the best french toast I've ever had.

"Established in 1924, this restaurant has moved locations once but always retained its popularity. Delicious cuts of beef tenderloin, New York steak, T bone and top sirloin can be found on the menu.
Try the Bacon and eggs - (via @Foodspotting)
by Harry M.
Order the #3! It's DELICIOUS!
by Parker S.
If your by yourself, never wait in the line. Just act like your going in to meet someone and slip into a chair at the counter.
by Paul R.
Get everyone a chocolate milkshake. Yolo.
by Lily Ana
This place only accepts cash "tradition since 1924" then why in the world aren't the prices from 1924?
by Joshua P.
Quickest service around. Get there early, it gets crowded quick!

Flying solo? Bypass the line & sit at the counter, watch the cooks in action. Be prepared to order. Food comes out quickly. Enjoy your own man/woman vs food moment.
by Dave F.
First time ever at this place. I ordered bacon & eggs. 30 min. later end up w/food poisoning. Next time I'll stick to the Pancakes.
The good ol' American Breakfast! over-easy eggs, bacon, and wheat toast! Don't forget your $$ No plastic accepted even my fave Amex!
