After The Girlfriend and I were seated we overlooked the menu while munching on our toast from Best Bet's signature endless toast basket (like a churrascaria just turn the card to green when you want more). I decided to go with a traditional savory breakfast called The River with 3 eggs, bacon, sausage, and Best Bet's signature Ava Potatoes. I asked for my eggs over medium and they came out perfectly. If you are touting yourself as a breakfast place you better nail the eggs obviously, but actually its the other little things that Best Bet does that makes it special in my opinion. The bacon was thick and delicious just like bacon should be. However, the sausage at Best Bet is actually grilled fresh and not frozen. They actually take a ball of local pork sausage and smash it on the flattop. How many chains are doing that? Not many. The result is breakfast sausage that just plain tastes better. The other thing that stands out to me are the Ava Potatoes. More than just homefries, these potatoes are cooked in a pile on the flattop with onions and seasoned well. They have a lot more flavor than your average hashbrowns. A lot of people, including myself, often say that they don't enjoy going out to breakfast because it's basically the same stuff they can make at home. At Best Bet that just is not the case.
Taste 10/10 This is place is tied with Rosie's in downtown Noblesville for my favorite breakfast joint at the moment. As far as I'm concerned I couldn't think of a single thing I was served that I didn't like. Try it out.
Value 8.5/10 I'll be honest. At Best Bet you're not going to get the ultra-cheap breakfast that you can get at other places. However, what you do get is more than worth the price, which is still in no way prohibitively expensive. It's all about bang for your buck here.
Service comments: I forgot to mention that the uniqueness of this place goes right down the service. Best Bet is the only restaurant I've ever been to ever where the server doesn't just tell you their name, but asks you what your name is too. It's a small thing, but it's nice and memorable. Also, it seems as if the servers are enjoying their job, and service has always been friendly and prompt every time I've been there.
