The Cracker Box opened it’s doors on May 10th, 1980 and has been perking along ever since. When owner Jerry Massad opened the doors more than 3 decades ago he had one thing in mind.; serve the best breakfast around. He did just that, and now, more than 3 decades later he’s still doing it every day. Coming from a long line of restaurateurs, Jerry wouldn’t have it any other way. The place was a lot smaller back then, seating just 24 people. Jerry ran the kitchen and there was just one waitress. The place is bigger now, but the quality is still the same. We pride ourselves on serving piping hot, hearty, and made from scratch breakfasts and lunches seven days a week. We make our own sausage gravy, cure our own corned beef and hand dip our chicken fried steaks. Plus all of our soups and salad dressings are made in house, from scratch. And, don’t forget the “Soon to be Famous” home-style spuds and squeezed to order juices. Voted Best in the West by readers of AAA’s Via Magaine, the Cracker Box is always at the top of the “Best of” lists. Locals regularly vote it the “Best Breakfast in Carson City”.
