We visited on a Friday around 8:30am. Seated immediately and server took our order very quickly. Our food was delivered quickly as well. The servings are huge so make sure you are hungry or plan to share a meal. The biscuits and gravy is amazing along with the breakfast potatoes...Good strong coffee too!

I just brought two Alamo breakfast burritos home. They are big even without the tomatoes and jalapenos. Two can definitely share one and feel filled up. Not sure if I'll get it again as it was a bit over priced compared to a similar large b fast burrito at Pancho's in Blue Springs

They substituted common button mushrooms for crimini mushrooms. Waitress said that's all they had & basically didn't know the difference. Spinach tasted like it had not been washed from bag. Chicken was grilled well with panko type breading. Salad dressing probably was Otts... I had strawberry vinaigrette. Strawberries were fresh & salad had a nice visual appeal though. I would... More

Good food and clean but don't sit on the bar side! OH MY WORD! The server's do "their thing" on that side and they are so Unbelievably LOUD, cacophonous, and obstreperous that My husband and I couldn't even carry on a conversation because we couldn't hear each other over the server's! And we're not senior citizens w/ hearing aids! We... More

When I travel, I dont like eating at places I can go to at home. Althought it looks like this is a chain, it was new to me. And even though it is a chain, it felt like a local mom-and-pop place, which I really like. The place is very informal, yet personal. The service was quick and friendly, even... More
