If you’re a longtime Nevadan, you’ll likely recognize the humble restaurant featured below. This place has been serving up delicious food for more than half a century with no signs of stopping. The restaurant is more than a local favorite. It’s a staple. Learn why Nevadans are so obsessed with this place and be sure to pay them a visit soon.
Hiding out in Winnemucca is a wonderfully humble eatery known as The Griddle. It may be located in small town Nevada but this place is a treasured part of the community and every Nevadan should pay it a visit at least once.
The Griddle first opened its doors all the way back in 1948. At the time, it operated only for the summer from Memorial Day through Labor Day each year. However, it wasn't long until business was booming and they switched to year-round operation.
Today, the restaurant is an iconic representation of 1950s Americana. Boasting a unique retro charm that you're sure to fall in love with, this place doesn't look like it's changed one bit over the decades. Except for one thing...
In the early 1970s, the owners switched from serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner to serving strictly breakfast. This allowed The Griddle to focus all their energy into cookin' up the best breakfast food possible. And most people would agree that they've succeeded.
The Griddle has remained a family venture over the years, and therefore its values have stayed the same as well. This is the type of place where the food is always hot and fresh and you're always meant to feel at home.
As far as the menu goes, you can expect to find classic diner style fare here...but with a gourmet twist. If you're looking to try out a Griddle classic, look no further than their fresh crepes. With flavors like raspberry, peach, and pecan with bacon caramel, you'll be in heaven from the first bite.
They also boast several specialty dishes that are unique to the restaurant. Their Gravy Train Potatoes are a mish-mash of savory goodness. It consists of bacon, sausage, and onions mixed with hashbrowns and topped with cheddar cheese and gravy.
For a taste of classic American culture from yesteryear, look no further than The Griddle. After just one visit, you'll come to understand exactly why this place has been in business for over half a century—and counting!
You'll find The Griddle at 460 W Winnemucca Blvd, Winnemucca, NV 89445.
