#1 Big Whiskey’s

Ok, so call us biased. We love our own menu because it’s got tons of variety, bold flavors and some really big mimosas. There’s too many to name a favorite, but you’ve got to try The “Late Riser Burrito.” It’s crafted using fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, shredded pepper jack cheese, and breakfast potatoes all wrapped in a flour tortilla and served with sour cream, homemade salsa, and a side of fresh berries.
