|My son, Dave, and I, after enjoying the food and hospitality at The Omelet House in Las Vegas!|
Before my June (2018) dog-sitting visit to Las Vegas, I remembered reading that The Omelet House was the late Jerry Lewis's favorite restaurant. He lived in Vegas since the early 1980's. The Omelet House was the venue where Jerry Seinfeld interviewed the legendary "King of Comedy" in 2012. You can see that 2018-released interview, along with the two Jerrys driving and chatting around Vegas in a vintage red Jaguar, in the Netflix series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
When you enter this amazing restaurant, you'll see an autographed photo of President Jimmy Carton and his family, as well as a menu autographed by President Bill Clinton. As the hostess guides you to a table, I found myself looking around to see if I could spot someone I recognized, such as a celebrity or prominent national politician.
Naturally, we just had to request a couple of orders of that excellent Jerry Lewis bacon. And it was terrific! For my main breakfast course, I ordered the "Mile-High City" omelet. With a nod to the famous "Denver sandwich," its contents included ham, bell pepper, and onion.
Prices are reasonable. Only $11.29 (2018) for that omelet I ordered and that included all the trimmings.These omelets - constructed from their stated "farm fresh eggs" - are served with the restaurant's classic spuds and your choice of Toast, English Muffin, Homemade Pumpkin Nut Bread, Banana Nut Bread (when available) or Tortillas. Trust me, you won't leave this place hungry, but you will take with you lots of unique and happy memories. I know our family did. Our party was comprised of my son, David, daughter-in-law Tammy, granddaughter Olivia (12) and myself.

For the health conscience, the menu says, "Because we love you, we use only ZERO trans-fat oil in our cooking."
Next time you're in Vegas or if you live there as my son does, stop by The Omelet House and dig in. You won't regret your experience at this very authentic Vegas landmark!
