If gluttony were a punishable offense Pat and I would both be locked up. Either one of our meals would have been enough for us to split. However the belly wants what the belly wants.
Emmy’s is that place that exists all over the nation. A large menu featuring breakfast as well as lunch or dinner and they will serve whatever you want when you want it. Oh yeah and the prices are reasonable and the portions are huge.
For whatever reason breakfast food always sounds so enticing anytime of day so Pat and I both decided on omelets.
I think that all of their egg dishes offer a choice of pancakes or toast. Pat,as usual,gets dry toast and I opt for pancakes. That way he can taste my cakes and still tell his wife he ordered dry toast. Shrewd.
These are the pancakes that came with my meat lovers omelette. Very light and tasty. Everything you would want in a pancake. They add a bit of vanilla to their syrup;which I think is interesting. Too much of the syrup may be overwhelming. However in “normal” amounts it provides a nice change.
This omelette is filled with ham,sausage and bacon. As an up-charge I added sausage gravy to cover. It was great. The eggs were nicely prepared but a purist might suggest that they were over done. However they probably haven’t tried to rock out a 5 egg omelette. I thought that it was an excellent dish. The gravy was nice,very civilized with small pieces of sausage in it. I would have to try it over biscuits to judge it properly. I will definitely second Pat’s comment on the hash browns. Wonderfully crisp and brown and delicious.
Both of our omelets were $8 and my gravy add-on was $.79. An amazing price for a great amount of good food. As I said joints like this exist all around our country, not as many as in the past but they are out there and this is one of the best. Worth the drive.
