Fodor's Review

Expect to wait an hour or more for weekend breakfast at this splashy Hillcrest eatery, where the walls display photos of farm machinery and other icons of Middle America, although the menu takes a Southern-accented look at national favorites. The supersize portions are notable; at breakfast, huge platters carpeted with fluffy pancakes sail out of the kitchen, while at noon customers favor the overflowing chicken pot pies crowned with flaky pastry. The parade of old-fashioned

good eats continues at dinner with hearty meat and seafood dishes, including sage-flavored fried chicken, bacon-studded waffles, and meatloaf stuffed with roasted red pepper, spinach, and mozzarella with a side of mashed potatoes.

Gluttony at It's Finest

I am shocked that fodor's would star this restaurant. Indeed the platters are huge and so is the amount of food. But I would gladly give half of it back in exchange for more flavor, better execution of the dish, and less money put out. If you want a great breakfast go to The Cottage in La Jolla!

Hash House a Whoa Whoa!

Whoa! Is the only word for it - the rumor was it that this place had huge portions - but nothing really beats seeing it for yourself. We regretted not bringing our camera. Who knew we would need it for breakfast. We sampled a hash (served in a 12" cast-iron skillet) a couple of platters and a blackberry pankace that was out of this world. Prices really are $10-15 for breakfast but even with the plate sharing charge of $2.50 it is reasonable as

you will still be bringing home leftovers! Service was friendly, informative, fast, and attentive. Decor was cool - stainless steel tables, photos, and some other artsy touches. Oh did I mention this is the only breakfast place I've been recently with a bar. No - a real bar.

Go Go Go to Hash House...

We went their our second day in San Diego and then our, third and fourth, and even woke up early before heading to the airport for our fifth morning. Imaginative dishes for breakfast that are huge and flavorful. We tried a ton of different stuff and loved it all - even the peanut butter captain crunch pancakes. You can't lose with this place.

My Favorite Sunday Brunch in San Diego

The helpings are enormous, the wait staff is very friendly and the food is superb! All this at a decent price. I love this place. It's a gluttonous treat.

Cartoon-sized Portions but Great Eating!

If you ever wondered where Fred Flintstone would hang out in San Diego, this is the place. I'm 6'7" and weigh well over three bills and the corned beef hash breakfast was more than I could eat by a fair piece. And the food isn't a Denny's ripoff on bigger plates, its the real deal--real corned beef roast on mine, about a pound I'd say. Of course my wife looked a bit lost behind her plate of bacon and eggs that was half again as long as her forearm

so it may not be a great place to bring the significant other unless she's training for the olympic weightlifting team. I can't speak for lunch or dinner but if you eat here for breakfast, cancel your lunch plans.
