We all know about delicious HoneyBaked Ham for the holidays, but did you know it can be enjoyed year ‘round? The Riverside Drive restaurant and deli are open daily, serving breakfast and lunch (or early dinner), dine in or take out. And what a selection!
For breakfast lovers there are omelettes and scrambles, egg sandwiches, hot cakes and French toast, even Eggs Benedict made with mouth-watering HoneyBaked Ham. For added spice, try a breakfast burrito. Mmmm…
Lunchtime, too, has much from which to choose: burgers and dogs, sandwiches and salads. We opted for the Chef’s salad, piled high with HoneyBaked Ham, turkey, cheeses and avocado, (enough for another meal) and also ordered the HoneyBaked Ham, cheese and avocado melt, served with a tart pickle spear. Yummy!
The grill is open daily until 3pm. If you dine in the simple but spacious restaurant, there is table service, but we didn’t know this, so we ordered at the deli counter. Most of the employees have been there a long time, and are patient with us while we decide what to order.
It is easy to understand why this place has lasted so long, about 40 years: the quality of the food, the gracious staff and the many services available to make life easier in this hectic world of ours. Their catering menu is impressive, too, no matter what the size of your event.
HoneyBaked Ham is located at 10106 Riverside Dr. in Toluca Lake and is open Monday through Friday, 7am to 5pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 7:30am to 3pm. Call (818) 766-3958.
