Had breakfast because of delayed flight. They lure you in with the smell but probably the worst service I’ve had and they weren’t even busy. Food was ok but how wrong can you get eggs? Look for another option in my opinion.

I try to eat in local spots, but they have such good BBQ and it was near my hotel. Cant go wrong with the BBQ, but I like the side dishes too.
