Yelpin’ 022 – Kelly O’s Diner (Strip District)

In recent months, I wrote about a comparison between The Dor-Stop and Pamela’s, two popular breakfast diners here in the Pittsburgh region.  I have been hearing good things about Kelly O’s in Pittsburgh’s Strip District and invited my aunt for a Sunday gab and munch session.

We were off to a good start at 9:30 AM (hint: get there early) and had a seat as soon as we arrived.  Promptly, a coffee was served and within 5 minutes our order was placed.  Then… it got super busy and people were seated all around us.  That is good, right?  Well, they also received their food before us even when our order was taken first.  This went on for 25 minutes.  My aunt and I had a lot of catching up to do, so we were enjoying the outing and frankly didn’t realize how long it was taking until hungry turned to “h-angry”.  The server immediately checked on things and mentioned that our order was submitted “but somehow half of it disappeared off the handwritten slip.”  Although a nice woman and extremely apologetic, the excuse did not seem to make logical sense (and also, we were still hungry).  Regardless, our orders were placed again “on the fly” and we received them within 5 minutes of the inquiry.

Now, my take on the actual food.  I ordered a steak and cheese omelette which was good, served with potatoes (onions and peppers added for an extra $1).  It was extremely good and not overly greasy like some diner food can be at times.

In closing, it was a shame that the order fell through the cracks because the quality of the food spoke for itself.  As we departed I took notice of the extremely cute stand-alone building (formerly a diner called JoJo’s in early 1990’s), there was a line out the door.  I confidently felt that these folks will get a quality breakfast.  Everyone makes a few mistakes and having served in the past a 20% tip was still left on the table.  I will give this place a chance again, especially since they have a lunch menu that looked delicious.
