Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it’s one of my favorites. Hey, who am I kidding, every meal is my favorite.

Las Vegas is home to some of the best breakfast and lunch restaurants I’ve stumbled upon. Every Wednesday I’m taping videos for my website WagerTalk.com with my good friend Bryan Leonard. We start early and it’s become tradition when we finish to go out for breakfast. Recently we found a 50’s diner and gave it a try. It’s called 50’s Diner Omelet House (3050 E. Desert Inn Rd.) and like so many of the breakfast and lunch places they’re open from 7 a.m. till 3 p.m.

It truly is like stepping back in time when you walk into the restaurant with its 50’s decor and diner favorites like burgers, patty melts, milkshakes and Cherry Cokes. On my first trip I ordered breakfast. They have a huge selection of items consisting of eggs, waffles, pancakes and, of course, their signature omelets. I decided to go with the ham steak and eggs.

As you would expect at a diner, I received a huge piece of ham with my eggs and potatoes. You have your choice of potatoes but for me I went with what they call spuds. These are thin sliced fried potatoes, which basically allows you to have potato chips for breakfast. Bryan went with an omelet and although I would like to make fun of his choice I am not one to throw stones. He ordered the Porky Pig omelet with spuds.

 

All of the waitresses at the 50’s Diner are very friendly and seemed to really enjoy their work, which always makes your experience that much better. We both enjoyed our breakfast so much that we returned a few weeks later.

Bryan will stick with items he likes so he again ordered the Porky Pig. I decided to go with a lunch item. I was in the mood for a burger and they had one called the Big Daddy Whamo. Now you see why I said earlier I can’t throw stones at Bryan for ordering the Porky Pig. The Big Daddy Whamo is two big hamburger patties with cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion. This is one big burger and comes with a side of fries but I substituted the spuds.

My burger was tasty and definitely filled me up. I washed it all down with a Cherry Coke and again was quite pleased with my experience there. Next time I have to try a milk shake with my burger.

The Diner menu is huge and if you’re in the mood for an omelet they have 39 to choose from. Their small omelet is made with 3 eggs while the large is 6 eggs.

The menu is full of comfort food classics and I’ll be back to try many of them.

I recommend if you’re on that side of town to give the Diner a try, If it’s on a Wednesday morning, you may even run into me.

I give the 50’s Diner Omelet House a rating of 3.75 forks.
