We popped in for lunch with a friend and loved this small friendly restaurant. We both had breakfast, which was incredibly yummy, and the quality of the sausages superb! The mouthwatering selection of cakes was beyond our capacity after such a hearty lunch, but will give us another reason to return!

Wide variety of choices on the menu, most of it looked good. Generous portions. Restaurant was clean and spacious, our server was quite friendly, attentive but not annoyingly so. Will definitely go back; lots more dishes we want to try.

I did not expect the ambiance that I'm going to experience in this restaurant. It has a perfect spot! Even the interior design was so nice, and it also has a TV screen that will make you feel so chill and entertained. The foods and the drinks they also served taste good and worth it. Honestly, I greatly loved my first visit here. Till next time!

This is one of Pasadena's best kept secrets. For those who know Kathleen's, you know exactly what I'm talking about. For the rest of you good folks, if you want excellent food, consistently great quality, and a fantastic staff unmatched anywhere else, try this place. Given the current situation, they are only doing takeout - which is still great. Support Kathleen's. This place is top notch!

Food: Due to its reputation, I ordered the Medium Sando like a pus the first time that I came. I did not find it nearly spicy enough, though it was an incredibly good chicken sandwich. The seasoning is extremely unique as this was my first hot chicken experience. After failing on my first attempt, my second attempt a few months later started with me trying to order the X-Hot Sando in which the cashier responded with "Are you sure about that?", which caught me of guard. I should have listened to my them, but there was no way I was going to not push the limits the second go around so I stuck with my decision. They proceeded to provide me with surgical gloves, and that's when I knew I must have made a mistake. Do keep in mind, I also ordered 3 Hot Chicken Tenders. Again, INCREDIBLE flavor, but that X-Hot was no joke!!! I got about half way through before my throat was going to explode from the spiciness. The great thing about the experience and the service that came with it, one of the managers that saw me struggling provided me with an incredible waffle w/ syrup (best waffle I've ever had, so crispyyyy), milk, and some of their limited edition banana pudding. All for free. Incredible service. Oh yea, the peach tea slaps!

The rest of the food that we ordered, patty melt and beef dip was really good!

If you go on a weekend get the WAFFLES!!!!! Don't be that person that has regrets at night for not getting them! They are spectacular! I am queen of brunch and they are by far the best waffles I have ever had. The *trick* they let the batter rise for 24hours! Game changer! They are airy, and crisp. And don't share them. Get your own order! It's amazing.

Okay okay let's talk about the food now. The food is remarkable. It's dreamy, it's heavenly. If Jesus said it's my time to go.. I'd be like okay. I had Howlin Rays. I'm ready. The Sando LOUIS style is a must. It's on white bread that's perfectly butter toasted and with melted cheese. I got the medium which has a great kick. Spicy but not crazy. I love spicy tho.. so if you are eh than I'd go mild. It's still very flavorful. Also the Mario fries are unreal. Every bite is like your eating a piece of heaven layered with gold flakes. And better yet have Mario himself serve it to you!!

Although this place is seemingly famous for their chicken sandwiches, the stars of the show are really the chicken wings! If you're willing to wait, I do think this place is worth trying out.
