Crazy Burger - Narragansett RI

I can't say enough about this place. I had been once before (lunch, over the winter) and thought it was excellent, but living an hour away, I don't often give it much thought. Yesterday I had made reservations for my mother and I at George's in Galilee for the Mother's Day brunch (I know, I know, as a RIer WHAT was I thinking? But we were visiting family in the area and I was looking for a full brunch). The place was FILTHY - same servings spoons had obviously been in use all day and were thickly crusted w/goo. White tablecloths on the buffet were filthy. Food was either dried out (the ham), undercooked (the white greasy bacon) or gray & mushy looking (the steamy piles of pancakes & french toast). We each took a look and made a beeline for the door, even though we had already had juice & coffee put in front of us. I was at a loss now and feeling really bad - I asked my mom if she was okay w/a very casual place - she said it was fine w/her.

Crazy Burger's atmosphere is definitely that of a diner run by hippies. The food is wonderful. I had cinnamon roll french toast w/caramel sauce, and a side of zucchini latkes (drizzled w/some kind of herb-y cream sauce). My mother had an enormous plate - omelet of broccoli, carmelized onions & gorgonzola cheese (chosen from a list of about 30 options), corned beef hash, nice crunchy home fries & homemade italian toast. The OJ was fresh squeezed, the coffee was excellent. The menu is huge - if I recall from my first visit they had 4-5 varieties just of veggie burgers (their own homemade, not frozen). Soups (corn & sweet potato chowder for one) salads, wraps, sides (sweet potato fries), desserts......all fresh, lots of vegan choices. Good service, pleasant & low-key. They completely saved Mother's Day for us.
