Review: Price Hill Chili

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Price Hill Chili: 

I had a presentation today, which went very well and left me on the West Side of town. I decided to stop into a local chili spot for a quick breakfast. Price Hill Chili is a Westwood institution. It features decent food for a good price. While it is not the trendiest spot in the city you can count on it for a hot meal and great service. 

Price Hill Chili is typical of many of the various chili spots in the city. They offer a variety of things on the menu besides Cincinnati style chili. You can also pick up double deckers, specialty sandwiches and breakfast all day long. You can usually expect a mid to low level breakfast from a place like this. Price Hill chili was not an exception to the rule. 

I ordered the mega Greek omelet, mostly because it had the word mega in the name and it offered a variety of toppings I appreciate. It came with spinach, feta cheese, onions, tomato, green pepper, and olives. There were a side of home fries and the whole thing ran me $7.35. I added a half order of french toast because I prefer sweet with my breakfast. 

The omelet was the french style fold with a thin layer of egg around a load of cooked toppings. I like it, mostly because it had flavorful insides. They use Greek olives in the omelet, which was unusual because most people go with black or green. I hate their house fries, which are like under cooked potato chips. Many diners make home fries in this style and I don't know why. It is a personal preference that I prefer the home fries in strips like I had in Indianapolis at 3 sisters.  

One major plus was that they did not put powdered sugar all over the french toast. Most places pile that stuff on and I was surprised to get two clean pieces of french toast. The french toast had a pretty good batter with not too much egg flavor and a decent amount of vanilla and nutmeg. It was light and tasty, hitting most of the flavor notes one expects from a french toast. it tasted like the type of french toast a friend might make if I were to request it. Its not quite grandma's but it will do. 

Overall Experience:
Service:                   4
Ambiance:               3
Menu:                      3
Food taste/Quality:   3

I give the whole experience 3 out of 5 broken eggs:
The service was pretty good, the food was standard. It was a solid experience that I would recommend if you are looking for a quick bite on the west side for not too much money.
