Mo's in Burbank?

  • 6
  • Share

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?

Thanks!

  1. 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.

      I've been for breakfast many times. Good, not great. The potato Mo's are strange, basically mashed potatoes for breakfast. They do a decent hollandaise and the omelets are all fine. Free champagne included, but sometimes you have to ask for it.

        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.

            I believe you're referring to Papoo's Hot Dog Show. It's one of my favorite restaurant names of all time! I used to go for lunch when I worked in the area, but never had the breakfast.

          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.
