    Chicken Fried Steak?
    JenZhui (2 reviews)

    Hard as a rock, both patties, as they came smothered in gravyy to hde the fact they bwere fired to a rockhard state..and the there was the not-so-green beans: yesterday's overcooked, lip, dark forest green benas mixed with today's fresher, crisper,, lighter green beans. Waiter never even asked or noticed I diid not eat my order.. I opted instead to share my buddy's bland chili spaghetti. I shoud have stopped at the side house salad which was cold, crisp, and fresher than anything else that night(Friday).

    Brians American Eatery has some great good-for-the-soul food. I had the chicken fried steak: they give you two smothered in white gravy and lots of mashed potatoes with even more gravy!

    The food is not your typical California cuisine that is overpriced. Simple meals that we all grew up with at low prices Good food at reasonable prices...what else do you need?

    Brians American Eatery is hands down one of the best in the city for American home cooked food. My favorite is their meatloaf.

    Good home cooking and they have a wonderful selection of entrees on their menu. The waiter was very friendly and accomodating. I would definitely go again for the meatloaf or fried chicken.

    When I'm too lazy to make my own meatloaf I head here! Very reasonably priced, not trendy, not overdone with the *ambiance*, just basic diner food. All around, good old fashioned American food!

    Delicious Diner-Style

    Brian's offers delicious diner style meals. Their sandwiches are good, but their breakfasts are my favorites. Try to Mexicali Omelet - any day that starts with guacamole is a good day.

    Brians' is one of my favorite spots in San Diego. Great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The portions are huge (I always have a box to take home) and their shakes are awesome. I recommend trying a chocolate strawberry mix. Yum! Check out the decor, too. I love the classic diner touches like the clocks and the full counter service.

    Classic American Breakfast
    lightning4242 (47 reviews)
    1/04/2008

    I've only been to Brian's for breakfast, and it was pretty good. You get a lot of bang for your buck here, both with food and drinks (nothing like cheap mimosas to go with your breakfast!). It does get fairly crowded, but the wait doesn't seem that bad for breakfast. Large menu with lots of variety and they seem to have some "healthier" alternatives as well (whole wheat pancakes, egg whites, etc). Great breakfast joint.
