Hobey's Casino Coffee Shop; Sun Valley, NV (Reno suburbs)...

Some chowhound friends were in town, and someone suggested an impromptu chowdown at Hobey's coffee shop for breakfast this am....since one of the visitors loves chicken-fried steak and Hobey's is supposed to have some of the best in town. My husband was skeptical, telling me privately: "Its a crappy locals' casino in Sun Valley; how good can it be?" (Sun Valley is not nearly as refined as its Idaho namesake, if you get my drift...). But DH had to work this anyway, and I wanted a chance to spend some time with my friends whom I see too rarely since my move to
Vegas, so I went along. And I'm glad I did. I'm not a big chicken-fried steak fan, but I tasted a bite and I must admit it was quite tasty. I had french toast; it was delicious with a hint of cinnamon in the batter. The accompanying bacon was perfectly cooked. A couple of our party had waffles, and they looked delicious as well. I noticed everyone had clean plates at the end of breakfast! The country-fried steak lover was quite satisfied. Service was reasonably fast considering how busy they were, and refills of coffee came before I thought to ask. Best of all, the price is very reasonable: a huge breakfast for five was around 40 dollars including tax and tip. My friends say that the steak house there at Hobey's also has some good steak and lobster specials. I say check it out for good old-fashioned diner food at a great price! Hobey's is on Sun Valley Blvd maybe a mile or so from the Clearacre exit off of 395 north of Reno (Clearacre becomes Sun Valley Blvd).
