Mo's in Burbank?
I'm supposed to meet someone for breakfast at Mo's in Burbank this week (their choice). I've never been there before and there isn't much posted on Chowhound about it, so I checked out Yelp and it had some awful reviews.
Has anyone eaten breakfast there? If so, is it so bad that I should suggest we eat somewhere else?
I don't suppose you remember Hampton's, which once occupied the same space (with the original location on La Brea). If you do -- or even if you don't -- it's pretty much the same thing, with the, um interesting hamburgers (I like the one with peanut butter and jelly) and German potato salad.
I've only been there for lunch, a few times, and wouldn't hesitate to go there again. On the other hand, as you've seen, it raises some people's hackles.
I figure: how badly can you screw up breakfast?
You can always go to Paty's, next door. Independently owned slightly above-Danny's coffee shop.
Ahhh yes, the Foggy Bottom Buger (PB& sour plumb Jelly!), my favorite.
I think that while Mo's is patterened after Hamptons (style) - I used to go to the Mo's in WHills - the quality doesn't seem quite the same. Still, it's great to be able to add all your own toppings on your burger.
Patty's is the best for breakfast. I can't believe Mo's could be any better. I love the patio at Patty's.
Surprisingly I had a great breakfast at Bob's a few years ago, one of the best I've had! Amazing, I know I was shocked! Maybe it was an abberation!
The hot-dog stand across the street -- the one with the big sign that says "Show Burger!" LOL -- also has a great, cheap breakfast, in case anyone was wondering. Can't recall the name of the place for the life of me, but you can't miss its garish exterior.
I really like Mo's weird fried-mashed breakfast potatoes -- butter, sour cream, nicely mashed, with a grilled-on crispy exterior. Not bad.
I miss Hampton's!!! The one on La Brea. Best tasting burger I've ever had.
Mo's has a much better breakfast than Paty's, which is the Lamplighter coffee shop with another name, period! The omelets are quite good as is the sausage as I recall, and as others have stated, those potatoes are good, yet a bit unexpected. Much warmer ambiance than competitors on either side of it, meaning Bobs and Paty's. Definitely the best overall place, especially for a business meeting.
The hamburgers and salads are also quite good, btw, if lunch might be the alternative.
