Omelet House is another great Las Vegas restaurant tucked away in a strip mall. Located at 2160 West Charleston, Omelet House is a large, homestyle breakfast and lunch restaurant with huge portions, friendly service and delicious food.
Omelets, as you would guess, are their specialty, and they offer over thirty varieties from the basic “Just Cheese” ($7.99) with a choice of cheddar, jack, Swiss or American, to the over the top “Kitchen Sink” ($11.99) which weighs in at about three pounds and really does have everything but the kitchen sink in it. Each omelet is made with no less than six eggs, loaded with fresh fixings and accompanied by their made-to-order crisp, thick-sliced potato chips and a choice of homemade pumpkin or banana nut bread. The homemade breads are served warm, moist and fresh, with butter. Don’t tell my grandmother I said this, but their breads are even better than hers. I have had both and I’d have to give a slight edge to the pumpkin bread, but they are both amazing.
For $0.95 you can split your plate with your dining companion. This makes for a great value, as half an Omelet House omelet is plenty of food for most appetites, and each plate tends to come with more than a 1/2 portion of their delicious chips. On my last visit my girlfriend and I shared a “Black Forrest” (Swiss cheese, ham and mushroom omelet), which cost only $10.94 for both of us including the split plate fee. I ordered my own square of pumpkin bread ($2.19). With two bottomless coffees ($2.49 each) our entire meal came in under $25 including a generous (and deserved) gratuity. If dining alone they also offer a “small” portion, similar to what you would get when splitting, but at an $0.89 cent discount off the full portion ($9.10 in this case), this isn’t quite as strong of a value. Besides, this place is too good not to share.
Service is friendly and efficient. Not only did they not bat an eyelash when I announced I would like to share my omelet, they brought it out already divided and plated. Very nice! They have handled late arriving guests and early check requests (plane to catch!) with ease, and never fail to make me feel at home. Omelet House consistently fills me up and sends me away smiling.
- Omelet House also serves eggs benedict, pancakes, french toast and other standard breakfast fare as well as burgers and sandwiches for lunch.
- If you have fond memories of the Omelet House at the Plaza, then rejoice! This is indeed the same place, except with shorter lines and better service. The decor isn’t quite the same, but the menu is!
- The West Charleston location is the original, and the subject of this review, but if you can’t make it there try one of the other Omelet Houses at 316 North Boulder Highway in Henderson or 6520 Boulder Highway in Southeast Las Vegas.
