Worst Service/ Food – Appearing busy outside, I walked inside to give the hostess my name/party (Only 2) and I was told the wait would be 10 minutes. I stood among other waiting patrons near the hostess.
After half an hour, I reviewed her list, and noticed that my name had already been crossed off. I asked her why a name would be crossed off, to which she replied "they have already been seated". I told her that I had been waiting in front of her the entire time, and was not, in fact, seated.
She waved me over to a table located directly in front of the entry way, which had been marked off this entire time BECAUSE it was in the entryway. I was seated at this table and apologized for being passed up.
A waiter took our food and drink order. I ordered chili, which could best be described as cooking oil with pepper and kidney beans, and coffee. I stopped eating my chili, and asked three times for a coffee refill, but was never given one- instead I was brought my check.
This entire time, every person entering the restaurant stood 2 feet away from my table, as the entrance was just over an arms' reach away, and every open door meant blinding sun in my face. As other customers left, I was not moved to another table, as those other booths were for larger parties.
I will not be returning.
Amazing Breakfast! – A staple to vegas locals!
I love this place even though it's usually jamming with people.
The soups are great and the eggs benny is my fav.
Nice and hearty portions are a lovely atmosphere make this spot a regular in my morning rotation.
I love the vibe here, and let's be honest, breakfast is pretty damn good no matter where you go, so a good crowd and a few cooky alternatives to a menu can make a heap of difference.
The last time I was here that had this quirky hot sauce called gringo bandito. Stuff was a-mazing! little things like that keep a customer coming back.
pretty expensive for just breakfast – i wanted to see what all the hoopla was about this place, and i didnt even eat there. i checked out the prices, and they were ridiculous, just left. the line was out there door. if u want to pay $15 for breakfast, i dont care how good the food is, be my guest. il go ihop
Amazing Skillets! – My family was visiting from out of state, so I took them to the best breakfast place I could think of - The Craked Egg! My parents loved it so much we ended up going there everyday they were in town (luckily they have a huge menu!). They were actually mad at me for not taking them before, the reason I hadn't is because its kinda far from The Strip but apparently worth the trip.
The skillets at The Craked Egg are really good, make sure to get your egg done "sunny side up", the goo from the yolk makes all the difference! The lemon-blueberry pancakes are a favorite too.
Used to love it! But it went downhill!!!!! – Their food was great in the beginning, I went with my family and there were a couple of mistakes but that was alright, it can happen anywhere but the manager was handling a customer poorly. It was as if he didn't know what he was doing? And then I saw how he talked to one of his employees. I was very disappointed, some "family restaurant" or "family owned."
I used to go there all the time. I stopped going after watching how he dealt with "issues." Actually, half of my family stopped going. Pretty sad.
Good Enough for the Trip – My husband and I try and go here as often as possible. We prefer it over IHOP and The Original House of Pancakes. When we go on Saturday mornings (11am or later), there is always a wait for a table, so we sit at the bar and eat. It's a little pricey for breakfast, but large portions, wish they had half orders as I don't eat that much. Oh ya, at the bar, we don't get coffee cake? :( Have to ask for it next time. It's worth taking a trip there. But now that Mimi's opened up on Rainbow, we have to take turns for breakfast.
What a disappointment! – Wow, my husband and I went to the Cracked Egg based on the great reviews and we were very disappoointed. We ended up leaving most of our food it was so poorly prepared. I had an omelet with chorizo and green chilis and the omelet was so overcooked It was hard. The chorizo was like ground beef and mixed in with the egg batter instead of being a filling and it was like eating cardboard. My husband had a scramble and it was also way overcooked. The hash browns were soaked in grease. The only thing that was edible was the coffee cake and that was more like an angle food cake than a traditional coffee cake. It was over the top sweet, but nice and light. Don't recommend this place at all.
Best Breakfast in Town! – When friends/family are in town this is the place we always take them for breakfast.
Our friend's son is allergic to wheat, we called ahead and talked to Mike - who was wonderful, he made special arrangements for their son's food to be cooked on a new pan. The staff at The Crakced Egg is amazing they are all so freindly. The outdoor seating is great. They have been busy everytime we've gone there but we've never waited more than 15 minutes to be seated and the service is always prompt. The menu is huge and everything we've tried so far has been really good - try a skillet or the waffle sandwich.
This is quickly becoming our Saturday morning hang out.
Greatest "Must Eat" in Vegas – I visit Vegas often and the first place I head to is the Cracked Egg. I tell every single one of my clients heading to Vegas about the Cracked Egg. First and foremost it is a family and friends establishment and you can see it the minute you walk in. The food is incredible and delivered by an extremely happy employee. The coffee cake served at each table is beyond amazing and changes daily. As for the long lines-the service is extremely fast, without making you feel rushed. The regulars are extremely kind and the family atmosphere makes this place feel like you are eating in your own kitchen-accept the food is 1000 times better and no clean up!!! All kids are welcomed!!!
Always Crowded. – Whenever I pass by they seem to be very crowded, obviously they're doing a good business. The crowd, for me, is a negative as I don't like a lot of noise when I dine. It's got an old fashion breakfast place decor. The food & service are fine. Like Hash House A Go-Go, personally, I don't see what all the fuss is about.
