We stopped here on our way to LAX for a late breakfast/early lunch. Our server provided excellent service and the food was very good. The washrooms were filthy and the blinds/window coverings did not look clean. If the management made sure the place was cleaned to a much higher standard, I would recommend it.

I have been going there once or twice a year for years, it's comfortable "diner" with good basic food. It's a chain like Denny's or Perkins with breakfast menu like eggs and pancakes, lunch, like sandwiches, plus dinner selections. I usually get a veggie burger and fries but have gotten egg breakfast there as well. They sometimes have had kids... More

I also eat breakfast here. It is an offshoot of a larger chain, and I like it as much as when I dined here in Santa Barbara, The manager at night makes you feel welcome and safe, as I eat early breakfast here. The day wait staff are all friendly and fast! Food: even eating the egg whites and lean... More

A good place for an average breakfast. Parking is not an issue is probably one of the pluses, and its location is convenient. Service and food is average.

Considering that is open 24 hrs, might be a good option around Gardena, nothing fancy but good portions, the service is very acceptable, the food nothing different from other family restaurants, price vs quality is well balanced.

Many choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with seasonal changes and more to the menu. Very busy, but service is attentive. Some items are pretty good, with special items and prices for seniors.

We go to Carrows for breakfast because 1) it is open early, 2) plenty of parking, 3) centrally located, 4) fairly priced 55 and over menu. Food is OK. Coffee is very weak

The food is very good, the prices are reasonable, but the service is very, very slow. I stopped going there simply because the service is too slow.
