I’ll start off by saying that my family and I had been planning a visit to Becky’s Diner prior to arriving at our hotel in Portland, ME. But when our bell boy (who was Adam Sandler 20 years ago) told us that Guy Fieri of Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” stayed in our hotel about a month ago to review Becky’s we knew we had to make a trip.
Woah, Guy!! Too bad we missed his trip to Portland, but I had a delicious experience at the diner nonetheless.
Walking in on Friday around 9 a.m. we had to wait for about 15 minutes before we were seated. It’s crazy to think that Becky’s had been open for FIVE hours already. When we drove by Saturday morning around 10 a.m. the wait looked to be about an hour. I can’t imagine what the crowd will look like once Triple D’s airs on the Food Network.
Becky’s still has a hometown feel to it with what looked to be a lot of locals lining the counter. I know I had to do it up big if I was going to be eating at a “soon-to-be-famous” diner.
For $8.50 I ordered the Hobson’s Wharf Special. Let me break it down for you: Bacon, two blueberry pancakes, two over easy eggs, homefires and two slices of toast. Did I mention all that food was for less than $10?
The bacon was thick, the homefries were fresh and the eggs were cooked perfectly.
Everything on my two plates was amazing. My dad ordered the Hobson’s Wharf as well and I traded one blueberry pancake for one delicious slice of french toast.
My mom is still raving till this day about her hash. What is hash you ask? Basically just pork sausage, potatoes, onions, egg and tomato all mixed up and mashed together.
Well, Becky seemed to get their hash spot on. I wouldn’t be surprised if their entire menu is spot on.
