Disgusting

I have eaten here 12-15 times always good. The last two times was different. A few weeks ago me & a buddy stopped in & I ordered pancakes. He got a waffle. Both were sour tasting. After complaining they made us fresh (were the other left overs?). The “new batch” was good. Today I went there with a friend. Eggs & home fries for her & eggs hashlet for me. They served my hashlet on burnt black English muffing. They looked like hockey pucks. After I gave them back to the waitress. The cook came out to ask if I wanted a new English muffin. I asked how she could put the hash over something she knew was burnt. No comment.

So River City Dinner will knowingly serve the customer slop. Great twice at this dump & twice bad food that they knew was bad. Do yourself a favor eat elsewhere. Don’t eat slop at this dump. Oh yeah both times I paid full price for the meals. They could even deduct for the price of the burnt black English muffin.

Average Breakfast - But Really Inexpensive!

This diner anchors one end of a small strip mall that is anchored on the other end by a sports bar. In between are some non-descript specialty stores. The site was formerly a really good coffee shop and this present incarnation isn’t bad – it’s just very “safe” and frankly, nothing special. That having been said, the food is good – not great – and it’s definiately one of the least expensive breakfast places in town. It’s very clean with comfortable booths and well-spaced tables, plus half a dozen stools at a counter. They only serve breakfast and lunch and there is a $ .50 surcharge per item for take-out.

#2 Special

There’s really nothing “special” about this beyond the price. Two eggs, home fries, toast and ham. The eggs were scrambled perfectly. The wheat toast was standard, supermarket bread lightly buttered. Home fries were browned potatoes, barely seasoned at all. The biggest disappointment was the ham. My companion was hoping for a hamsteak…or at least something more substantial than the two circles of deli-thin sliced ham he received.

Large Orange Juice

Served in a 16 oz. glass, but only 3/4 filled.

French Toast

I’m happy I accepted the waitress’s offer of butter and powdered sugar because those were the saviors of this dish. The menu described it as thick slices dipped in a ‘vanilla batter’ but I expected the batter to also include the usual cinamon and/or nutmeg. I was wrong. The slices weren’t really thick (not like Texas toast) and the vanilla batter produced a french toast that could only be described as bland.

side order of bacon

Four very thin slices, perfectly cooked.
