Zeke's Eatin' Place, Ontario, California

Ontario, California. After days of really awful hotel free breakfast fare, Hoss decided today we'd have real food. He googled up local eateries and decided on Zeke's Eatin' Place, a small place nearby that's held in high regard by the locals. Off we went!

Situated in a small strip mall between a beauty supply shop and a fitness studio, Zeke's is pretty nondescript on the outside. On the inside, though, it's a tribute to John Wayne, with a nod here and there to Clint Eastwood and James Dean. The menu's front page is devoted to the story of Zeke, a miner who opened an eatin' place, yadda yadda yadda. Skip it and just order, already. I had the Huevos Rancheros, which was a little light on the cheese, but otherwise very fresh tasting with homemade sauce. Hoss had an omelet stuffed with big chunks of delicious local link sausage, veggies, and cheese, with a side of biscuits and gravy. The omelet, fabulous. The b & g, just okay. It was Kansas country style, but the biscuits weren,'t homemade and the gravy roux had been undercooked. Otherwise, it felt like our favorite breakfast place in Phoenix, Maryanne's.
