It's the RED MOUNTAIN CAFE IN MESA AZ.
4410 E University Dr
Mesa, AZ 85205
NE Corner of University Dr & Greenfield RD.
I've driven by this place many times and never noticed it but for some reason, it caught my eye this morning.
Maybe it was all the shiny Harley's sitting out front or all the cars with the MI, MN, WI, IA, license plates!
Mesa is a haven for Snowbirds from the Midwest and they've started to roost in their mobile homes and doublewides for the Winter!
No web site - Don't need one! Word of mouth is all they need along with recommendations in places like Urbanspoon: http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/22/263999/restaurant/Phoenix/Red-Mountain-Cafe-Mesa
The place is owned by "Yoopers" from the "UP".
The crowd and employees this AM, (They open at 5AM!) were older people who love good home cooked meals. The only kids I saw there were with their Grandparents - Trying to educate them on what a good, stick to your ribs, Midwestern Breakfast tastes like.
The Bikers are older harmless guys and gals reliving their youth!
My standard "Test Breakfast" is usually Chicken/Country Fried Steak and Biscuits. The place passed with flying colors! Excellent Gravy and Home Fries too. Everything I saw coming out of the kitchen looked terrific. 3 Egg Omelettes, Pancakes that covered the plate, French Toast, South of the Border Skillets, etc. My Coffee Cup was never empty. Great service even though they were slammed.
They have an AYCE Fish Fry on Wed & Fri. I'm gonna try that.
For all you visitors who rave about Matts Big Breakfast------Matt's doesn't even come in a close second to this place.
Put it on your "Must Visit On My Next Trip to Phoenix" list. 5 Stars!
