+1 on Little Italy...Clean, family owned, good service...no frills...can get busy with locals and truckers...Google rates it at a 4.5 out of 5. Usually eat there before and after a run to your beautiful motorcycle riding state.

Never thought the Space Age was anything to jump up and down about, but was good last Thursday morning and had a late lunch of Tamales at Sofias. And a good burp at Dateland for the ride home.

I have dined at all of those places and I would rate Little Italy the best of the bunch. If your low on money go to Sofias and have one of their breakfast burritos. If you have never been to the Space Age go there. It is worth it to go once and check out the insides.

Tamales and a date shake? My old insides would have never endured that.

OK thanks for the recommendations. Will be heading down old US 80 today. I'll let you know what the group decides and how it was..

The shake lasted all the way back to Yuma. You know how hard it is to drink one of those thru a straw.

I have eaten at Sophias excellent food but hard to get into during the lunch hour. Parking lot usually full even during the weekdays. Only ate a little italy once for lunch and shared a pizza with a friend and it was very good. Had breakfast at Space age and it was good,( hard to screw up breakfast). Out of the three I vote for Sophias as the best. Never had a bad experience there.

Looked for Sophia's and could not find the sign. There is an empty building between Humbertos and Little Italy, is that where it was? Ate at Little Italy instead and it was pretty good.
