Wow, I'm really surprised to hear about your bad experience there. I've eaten there many times and the food was always good, and the service pretty on point as well. I haven't ever been there for breakfast, though, only lunch. Their burgers are pretty good, and the gyros sandwich is good, if a little bland. They do load the pita up pretty full.
Maybe you should try lunch. It is a little on the pricey side for lunch though. Most sandwiches and burgers are $7+. but they are generously sized. Some of the daily specials are pretty good too.

Processed "turkey" is not good in my book.

Call me a rebel if you will; I actually like Sysco fries (U.S. Foods if that makes it better)

I have found that people who concentrate their focus on a few things end up doing it well. This is true of fries, mayonnaise, and ketchup. (and a few other things) True that it is up to the end user to fry and season them properly; but more often than not a place that makes good fried potatoes from scratch is rare breed. In my experience, processed fries is a good compromise

Hi Kirk, I haven't been here in a while but I remember the hot roast turkey and the hot roast beef plates looking like massive mounds of fresh carved meat with gravy over it. That's too bad.
I tend to be too sentimental about having breakfast at diners so I have a hard time being critical but I'd say that processed turkey would've ruined it even for me..

Kirk

Hi Stephen - This actaully was a lunch since they serve breakfast all day. Maybe i'll drop by for a burger when I do another "burger week".

Hi Kat - Exactly!

Hi Chris - Actually I love SYSCO fries and hashbrowns...who doesn't love the SYSCO-fied hashbrowns at Perry's? But because the fries are processed, I give them less leeway....you shouldn't screw up your fries and hashbrowns too badly.

Hi Dennis - Well the turkey here was carved from something...what I'm not quite sure. The Missus loves Her simple breakfast..... but they managed to not do a good job on the hashbrowns.

Lynnea

Those hashbrowns looked pretty inedible. But that whole, having to salt everything, I know a number of people who say "you can always add salt, but you can't take it away." It doesn't really hold true, because the taste is completely different.

MrM

i-ick!

That kind of looks like the old open-faced blurkey sandwiches I used to get at the old K-Mart in Spring Valley for about 50¢ back in the day...edible only coz I used to like the corn they made and I was only 8.

In any case...rip off. =(

bill

That was disappointing especially the turkey sandwich.

foodhoe

grey, bland and flaccid sounds pretty grim. The chicken pie shop next door sounds promising!

Kirk

Hi Lynnea - I'm of the belief that the food served to you is a reflection of what the kitchen wants you to eat... so lack of seasoning, is just that.....

Hi MrM - Man, this was not very good at all.

Hi Bill - I couldn't bring myself to eat the so called "turkey".

Hi FH - Cathy's done a post on the Chicken Pie Shop if you're curious.

dave

we went there once for breakfast. i always thought that breakfast was the one meal you can't screw up. i was wrong.

Kirk

LOL Dave!!! he-he-he.....

Janfrederick

$8.40 for that eh? Quite a profit I'd imagine considering they didn't even spring for salt.

Kirk

Hi Jan - I was very disappointed in that Hot Turkey Sandwich.

mindless

Kirk, I have been noticing of late that places with a large group of regulars (of the senior demographic) do not salt the food. And, yes, I have also been served hot turkey sandwiches that were made from pseudo turkey loaf.

Kirk

Hi mindless - Yes, great observation..... but then again Rudford's gets many of those too. But it could be that these are members of what we call the "dead tastebud society".....
