Over Easy / Sack's

Just drove up to the Sack's location in Arcadia to discover it's gone and Over Easy has moved into it's spot.

I loved the Taco Bell renovation, not sure the new Over Easy will have that ambience.

As for Sack's, I called and was informed that they will reopen on a 42nd Street and Indian School location in December. They are making deliveries for the time being.

A lot of people slammed Sack's when I mentioned them before but I've only found a better egg salad at Liberty Market.

    I really like Sack's. Thanks for the update.

      I ate at the new location of Over Easy for the first time. It felt familiar, with the same furniture and countertop design, but much less claustrophobic. The kitchen is much further back from the counter. It looks like the same number of seats. From a practical standpoint, all seats will have better climate control. One probably won't have to park on the other side of the street anymore. I'm sure some will miss the old building.

      The chicken-fried steak was as good as ever. The home fries were weak in comparison to Matt's, Dick's Hideaway, Scramble, Harlow's, but, there are other options.

        I don't understand the appeal of either restaurant, to be honest. Over Easy fills the breakfast void in Arcadia, but it's not worth a drive from other parts of town. Sack's uses marginal bread and shredded iceberg lettuce in their sandwiches, and their sides are nothing special.

        What am I missing?

          As far as I could tell, the thing that you're missing is living in the area. Over Easy is decent, but the original location was walking distance from my house and I always drove right past it to other places. And Sacks... I'm pretty sure they specialize in feeding local businessmen on their lunch breaks.

            haha JK, I actually do live in the area, and never frequented either, which is why I don't understand the appeal of either. To each their own, I guess...

              I never cared for Sacks much either, but OE does a nice CFS/CFC and biscuits and gravy that may not make it a destination, but always make it worth the stop.

                I think I tried the CFS at Over Easy and thought it was tasty, but a little on the dainty side for CFS. The CFS at Ranch House Grill (not far from there, 52nd Street and Thomas is far superior, especially when topped with green chili instead of the traditional gravy.

                  RHG does it very well, and the green chili is great, when I eat there I order it with both. :)
