Friends suggested we meet for breakfast at Crazy Otto's. I thought it would be crowded but it wasn't. Service was good and fast. Meals are very large and knowing this I ordered a couple of eggs ala carte and then enjoyed some of the hash browns and chicken fried steak off my honey's plate along with a biscuit and some...

The food is excellent. You get a lot to eat. I usually take home left overs since they give large portions.

I have never had any bad food, whatever meal we are eating. Be prepared because the portions are BIG. Pancakes as big as a dinner plate! Service was great and the place is always packed.

The food we thought was terrible and slapped together I asked for a salad and it was iceberg lettuce with dressing... we paid over $75.00 for 4 people A diner style breakfast with no flavor and a terrible tuna sandwich. Not our cup of tea.

The food is good and in very large portions, but the worst service in the valley. This used to be one of the best places to eat in the AV. So unfortunate, but I guess when you are so busy you're customer service gets taken for granted. The location in Avenue I still has good food and better service.

Great place for breakfast. Huge portions so you better be hungry or split it. Friendly staff. Be prepared for a wait if you are going on a Saturday or Sunday. Patients it is well worth it.

You can't go wrong ordering food here! It's all good, but be careful! Unless you are a ravenous Tasmanian Devil, order the 1/2 plates. They are more then generous with their portions! 😎🌴

This was my second visit to Crazy Otto's and haven't been disappointed. Their food and service is spot on. Nice size portions , their country gravy is awesome and flavorful, biscuits best I've tasted,moist and tender. Country fried steak great. I recommend this place highly.

Lots of food for the price. Service is slow, but lots of food to have once you get it. Dennys style dinging, with more food.
