Very disappointed – Biscuits were great, ham steak was tasty (and large), but that's about it. Pork chops were flavorless and on the tough side, eggs and hash browns were just ok. For $32 for breakfast for two, food should have been a lot better.
What Happened? – What has happened to the Mecca? We don't get the opportunity to visit often and it has always been a special treat when we do, that was until yesterday. What has happened? The omelets have always been big and fluffy filled with lots of cheese, yesterday the omelets were flat and I actually had to open the omelet looking for the cheese! The biscuits were always as big as your fist, that definitely was not the case yesterday. The vist was a big disappointment to the both of us. Has this place been sold, if so, the new owners have a lot to learn about the Mecca's reputation!
Great customer service, great people, and great food – Wow where do I start? The Mecca fits it's name to a T. I went to the establishment on 2/27/10 and 2/28/10 because it's that good. I ordered the steak eggs and it came with hashbrowns and biscuits the size of your fist balled up. The waitress Lisa is who you must ask for because she will take care of you. On 2/28/10 I ordered the chicken fried steak and man was it slammin. This round I ordered it will grits and corned beef hash and what a treat it was. Lisa looked out for us again and took extra special care of our table. I never got to make it to the lunch menu but there is always next time. I'd give it ten stars but five are only allowed. Go there now.
Open on Sunday – Haven't been yet, but the site had conflicting notes about being open 7 days a week and closed on Sundays. So I called and they are open on Sunday till 2pm. I'll let you know how the food tasted after we eat there.
The sad passing of a landmark – I hadn't been to the Mecca in quite a while. Work and Family didn't leave much time. On a whim I called to find out if they happened to be open on Sunday. Much to my delight, I was told that they're open until 2:00pm. My wife and I went for breakfast this morning. We ordered eggs (hers over medium, mine scrambled well), bacon (flat and crisp), grits (for me), hashbrowns (for her), an English muffin (for her), and wheat toast (for me). Undercooked fried eggs were delivered to my wife, my scrambled eggs were browned on the outside and undercooked on the inside. The bacon was nearly raw, the grits were extremely runny (and instant) and swimming in butter (I like to decide whether to use butter or pepper). The wheat toast was correct, but the waitress was under the impression that I wanted lots of butter and assured me it was heavily buttered (it was the only time she expressed any concern about the quality of the meal). Fortunately, it wasn't. My wife's English muffin, however, was dripping butter. In years gone by the Mecca was a beacon of quality food and service, now I'd put it in the same category as Waffle House.
Best breakfast in town! – This restaurant is not exactly in the best part of town so a lot of people don't know about it. If you are looking for a hearty, fast, plentiful and traditional breakfast, you can do no better than The Mecca. Most of the waitstaff have been there for decades and service is fast and friendly. Great omelets, pancakes of all sorts (try the banana pancakes) and just about every kind of breakfast goody you can name. We love to take out of town guests there as a great start to a sightseeing day in DFW.
Don't Believe Us - Just Go – The WORLD's Best Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes. I ought'a know I spent two years looking. Their Regular Blueberry Pancakes are Just As Good. Take a Cinnamon Roll home for Sunday.
Popular breakfast spot in north Dallas is known for large tasty cinnamon rolls and other breakfast delights. – In Short
Customers enter this no frills restaurant and get in line to order breakfast, lunch or just a pie. The lineoleum floors, formica table tops and booths are surrounded by knick knacks and nostalgic items covering the walls. The cinnamon rolls are the size of a small Latin American country and go well with creamy buttermilk. Think Cracker-Barrel-meets-truck-stop: a place for down-home grits, ham steaks, fried chicken, corn muffins, cobbler and peach pie.
