Perkins is a chain restaurant, I believe. Not sure if it's a regional thing or a national brand, but I found myself here for dinner in Billings, MT.

It was a last minute decision on recent Friday night in September 2017 for dinner options and at around 2130 driving around downtown Billings for anything that piqued my interest. I ended up having dinner here at this Perkins restaurant and it ended up as being the better, healthier choice, versus late night fast food dining or convenience store junk. With that said, I have had Perkins restaurant in other cities on previous travels, so I was familiar with them. They feel like they are a homespun restaurant that cares for you like family. I can compare Perkins to IHOP or Denny's, but Perkins seems to be a step up from them. I do like the fact that the restaurant itself is fairly large and they open up to midnight each night, which is awesome for people like me who like to dine after 9pm. Perkins is very clean and the service is friendly and attentive. Service here with a smile is genuine, so that was nice when they greet me that night. Felt welcomed really, especially when my stomach was rumbling.

I probably spent about 45 minutes here from start to finish. There are plenty of options to choose from. I do love a restaurant where they seemingly can serve breakfast all day, any day, so that's a definite plus for me. I do love me some breakfast food for sure, so I am happy with this purchase / decision. This Perkins restaurant is located at 200 N 27th Street in the heart of Billings, MT. They accept credit cards, which is always a plus for me as a visitor. Cash is still king around these parts. They have a private parking lot that they share with a few businesses, so there's limited parking spots, depending on the time or day you are here. Not sure if the Billings public transportation system comes through here, but I had a rental car during my visit, so I drove there. For the most part though, the experience was a typical one and glad they were open that late for folks like me.

Burgers and fries seemed appropriate here, but I noticed that they were pretty big on breakfast items as well. Like IHOP, but a bit better, I thought. I ended up getting a 3 egg omelette called "the everything", which came with hash browns and pancakes . It was definitely a treat for me, since I rarely do omelette for breakfast. The omelette itself featured a whole host of stuff in there, which made it pretty delicious and satisfying. The hash browns were good too. I finished off the meal with the 3 pancakes that came with the meal. The prices here start off averaging $10 per entree, which seemed consistent with other restaurants similar to Perkins. I particularly liked the omelette more, since it was the star of the entree. Hash browns were good and the pancakes were typically okay. I'm glad that they were not dry. For the most part though, having a restaurant like Perkins in the community does help with the variety among meal options you may have on any given day.

If you like wholesome meals that are not brown bagged, come here. The service is good and friendly. 4.0 stars for the entire experience.
