Every since I started going to Edwards AFB regularly several years ago, this place has been on my to-do list. Several people on Chowhound raved about it. Several area guides recommend it. And the place is photogenic to boot.
But every other time I’ve come to the area, I’ve had to be out at Edwards early enough that I couldn’t do breakfast. But finally, on my 5th trip out here, I had a chance to go here for breakfast.
And I’m glad I did.
My breakfast was the “loco hominy quicky” special. This was one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time. The hominy
(which I don’t think I’ve had in a breakfast dish before, it works well)
and chorizo combined to make a very tasty and spicy egg dish with a
pleasant texture. The homefries were very lightly seasoned and nicely
crisped. And the whole wheat toast on the side was nice and grainy.
Seriously, this was one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time (definitely top ten list material).
Everything else here looks really good. Giant perfectly cooked chicken fried steak. Well-crisped pancakes. Giant glasses of iced tea. Thick cut bacon.
I need to come back.
