Actually, I think that will work out just fine. We do need a convenient breakfast type place near the airport.

The restaurant is a franchise, so it could be a different operator than the one who ran the Omaha area stores which all closed down.

Exactly, Coyote and I go to a Perkins in GI every spring and we have good service and it’s just breakfast food so i’m Not sure what people are expecting... eggs are hot, pancakes are hot, coffee is fresh, what else do you need...

Yeah, but that old Hollywood Diner was never open in the morning.

I need my blueberry pancakes to be made with a generous amount of real blueberries that are actually inside the pancake not just dumped on top.

Easy then. If they don't make what you want don't go there.

Really? With all those hotels around there I would have thought it would be a natural. I know that many of them offer something in the morning, but I've never been much for the continental breakfast.

I remember when the first floor of the Omaha Hotel at 108th and L was a Perkins. Through about 2010, for several years, I’d meet a friend for breakfast there about once a month or so. For what it’s worth, I don’t remember any particular bad food or bad service. The place served pretty much what was expected and served its purpose...

I always enjoyed Perkins food. We used to eat at the one on 70th and Dodge when I was growing up.

Perkins restaurants now seem relegated to small towns. The one in Hastings seems to only allow people with walkers and oxygen tanks to eat there. They actually have a large walker storage area for customers to place their walkers while they are dining on the soft food.
The one time I ate there the waitress insisted that I eat the free slice of pie for dessert that came with every meal that day. I told her I wasn't interested. She looked confused, then insisted that I take a slice "to go". I told her no and you would have thought I ruined her day or something.

Like most who dined at the Omaha stores can agree, food was substandard and service was poor. Eggs are eggs, but cold or burnt/undercooked eggs and flat pancakes didnt fluff when cooking is a sign if poor business execution.

At one time it was good, equal to Village Inn. But the last 2 years, it was total suckage.

My experience with all of the Usual Suspects like Perkins is that it can vary quite a bit from facility to facility, from day to day, from shift to shift.
