Since Peg's Glorified Ham and Eggs opened their doors, a little over three years ago, they have established a reputation as one of the best breakfast restaurants in Roseville, and the place is nearly always packed, especially on weekends.  For some unknown reason, I'd only visited the restaurant once, with the Sacramento Breakfast Club, but I was eager to pay another visit, and enjoy a superior breakfast.  It all came together on Saturday, August 06, 2016, when my wife and I paid a visit to Peg's.

As with all of my reviews, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  Peg's has four locations in the Reno, Nevada, area, and late July, 2013, they opened the Roseville location, which, as of this writing, is their only location in California.  Peg's is located in a new strip mall, about a mile east of I-80, on busy Douglas Blvd., in Roseville.

Photo:  Peg's Roseville location offers a very spacious dining room, with a good mixture of tables and booths.  Like the downtown Reno location, it features an open kitchen, where you can observe the kitchen staff at work.  On this mid-Saturday morning in early August, Peg's is a very busy restaurant.  By the time we left, every table was seated, and there were folks waiting for a table.

Photo:  Peg's Glorified Ham 'n Eggs is open for breakfast and lunch only, so if you're in the mood for breakfast, you know they're serious about breakfast.  Here's a small portion of the breakfast section of the menu.  I was especially attracted to the "Monterey Skillet" and "Aloha From Hawaii" sections, but the "Mexican" in me won out today, so I went for the Tamale and Eggs.

Photo:  I love the open kitchen, and the breakfast bar, where you can observe the kitchen staff preparing delicious meals.   If I wasn't dining with my wife today, I'd be sitting at the breakfast counter, as I love to watch the staff in action, especially when I dine alone.

Photo:  Our friendly and gracious waiter, Cordell, smiles after placing our breakfast on our table.  Cordell was more than happy to have his photo taken. My "Monterey Skillet Breakfast" is sitting on the table.  More about my amazing breakfast in a couple of photos...  If you look through the window to the right of the photo, you can get a peek at the small outdoor dining area that Peg's offers.  Despite the fact that the restaurant was VERY busy, our order arrived in less than fifteen minutes.

Photo:  My wife, Sharlene, and I pose for the camera, as Cordell snaps our photo upon my request.

Photo:  Sharlene chose to go veggie, so she ordered the "Veggie Bene," and rather than potatoes - the menu gives you the choice of potatoes, fruit or grits - she ordered fruit for an added health factor.  The Veggie Bene" includes avocado, spinach and onion, rather than meat, and like it's cousin, it's topped with hollandaise sauce.  Sharlene loved it, but couldn't finish it all.  I usually will help her out, but I was stuffed after finishing off my gigantic breakfast.

Photo:  My "Monterey Skillet Breakfast," which, like the menu says, is served in a skillet.  I enjoyed Tamale and Eggs, which is a homemade tamale topped with Peg's ranchero sauce, two perfectly fried eggs over easy, served with golden hash browns, pico de gallo, cabbage slaw, fresh pinto beans a slice of cantaloupe, and warm corn tortillas.  The platter of delicious food was enormous, delicious, and filling!  This is one of the best breakfasts that I've enjoyed in a very long time, and Peg's just may become my favorite breakfast restaurant in Roseville! Muy sabroso!

Peg's Glorified Ham 'n Eggs has been voted "Best Breakfast in Reno" many times, by various venues of the Reno media, and we certainly can understand why, as Peg's serves a superior breakfast!  We love the open kitchen, the friendly staff, and the innovative, delicious food.  You won't go home hungry, as the portions are enormous!  Mary and I were the only members today to finish our breakfasts; everybody else took most of theirs home in a box.  We predict in the not too distant future that Peg's will win a "Best Breakfast in Roseville" award.
