Potatoes Del Riego, $8
Uncle Bill's Pancake House is my favorite neighborhood dive and I make it a point to go every time I go back to my hometown in Southern California.
While I usually get pancakes because (1) they are delicious, (2) they are reasonably priced and (3) that's what they're famous for, on this visit I decided to change it up when I saw everybody eating this mountain of cheese, potatoes, bacon and avocados instead of the house special.
But is a dish of potatoes and cheese, and a couple of slices of avocado, really worth almost $10 bucks?
Here are some details to help you decide if this a deal or no deal:
Menu Item: Potatoes Del Riego
Restaurant: Uncle Bill's Pancake House
Cuisine: Traditional American Fare
Neighborhood: Manhattan Beach, Calif./Manhattan Beach Pier
What the menu tells you you'll get: "Hash browns sauteed with crumbled bacon and melted cheese, topped with sour cream. Add in bell peppers, onions and avocado. For those with a BIGGER appetite"
What I actually got: nearly of pound of diced potatoes, crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese, sour cream, bell peppers, onions and avocado slices piled high into a stroganoff-like dish.
So what's your opinion: Deal or no deal? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
