Two for breakfast at 10AM. This is an out-of-the-way place on East 4th Street, not a great neighborhood, but it's easy parking on the east side, shares a building with a bar. Hard to spot while driving east on 4th: the sign is painted on...More

I've ate breakfast and lunch many times at Big Ed's Alley Inn. I have yet to have a bad meal there and I've been going there since 2008. Good portions, friendly staff and clean facility. Try the home made potato chips- EXCELLENT!!

I've heard stories about this place for years. Finally made it there for lunch. They serve breakfast all day. I had chicken fried steak. It was wonderful. Companions had french dip and steak sandwich both were very happy. Rustic decor, very small space. Bar also.
