Back in the day, there was a Lyons Restaurant, on Lincoln Way, and many people liked it.  But, that was ten years ago, as the restaurant fell upon hard times, closed, but like a phoenix rising from the ashes, it reincarnated itself into Sierra Grill, which has become one of the go-to breakfast restaurants in Auburn.

As with all restaurant reviews I publish, 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:  Sierra Grill is located on Lincoln Way, just off busy Interstate 80, on the east end of town.  This restaurant is not to be confused with Sierra Grill Smokehouse, on Grass Valley Highway, also located in Auburn.  Today is Thursday, June 15, 2017, at 0615 in the morning, and I'm ready to enjoy a great breakfast.

Photo:  The cashier's station, as you enter the restaurant.  The restaurant was decorated very patriotically, as yesterday was Flag Day, and Fourth of July is only a couple cooks away.  At this early hour, shortly after the restaurant opened, the large dining room was nearly deserted.

Photo:  The dining room is very large, and features a mix of tables and booths.  There is also a small counter near the window to the kitchen, but since the restaurant was nearly deserted, I chose to sit at a booth.  As you look over the dining room, the heritage of this restaurant is obvious, as the new owners have made few changes.

Photo:  The breakfast menu is extensive, and features something for every taste.  This is only a portion of the menu. Everything sounded good, but I settled on steak and eggs, as I hadn't enjoyed steak for breakfast since I could remember.

Photo:  My friendly server, Michelle, brings breakfast, and a couple of extra bottles of hot sauce to my table, with a big smile.  

Photo:  Thanks, Michelle, for snapping my photo, as I prepare to enjoy breakfast on this early Thursday morning.

Photo:  I ordered a 10-oz sirloin steak, eggs, country potatoes, along with a biscuit and gravy.  I asked Michelle if the potatoes came with peppers and onion, and she said they could be added, so I asked her to load them up.  Check out the amount of onion and pepper on my potatoes!  Such a delicious breakfast...

Sierra Grill is a great place to enjoy a wonderful breakfast!  The service is fast, friendly and efficient, the dining room is clean and comfortable, and the food is both delicious and reasonably priced.  Not to mention the fact they open every morning at 6, on the dot, which brings a smile to the face of every "early bird," like me.  Great food, friendly service makes Sierra Grill a great restaurant!
