It has been my privilege, to search for new and or old breakfast eating establishments that serve pork chops. We have found deep fried, barbequed and grilled served with eggs. Today we are traveling to an old local favorite in San Pablo California called Sukie's Country Kitchen. I received a hot tip many moons ago by a trusted barbeque ally and a pork chop enthusiast himself, Reverend Biggles. It was time to take the plunge to pork chop enlightenment.

Sukie's outside looks like any other breakfast establishment that was built in the 70's. Once you go in to this nondescript building you will be greeted by a "Cheers' like atmosphere. Everybody knows everybody. We were outsiders but were treated with a warming respect. We were seated and proceeded to go through a breakfast routine that is repeated millions of times everyday throughout our country. There was one big difference. We were on a mission to eat pork chops and share with them with you.

Two pork chops seared on a sizzling flat top accompanied by two homemade biscuits smothered in a country cream gravy were injected into my awaiting food consumption receptacle. These pork chops rocked my world. They were seasoned with salt and pepper and fried to a perfect degree of doneness. They weeped pork juice into my cream gravy. The biscuits where light and fluffy. The gravy mixed with the pork tears of joy, was the perfect medium to cover these pillows of love. Oh, and Ms. Goofy had an omelet.

Suki Country Kitchen is a comforting old time breakfast restaurant. There will be no surprises here. If you want to have an inexpensive, filling, and great breakfast come to Suki's. Oh by the by, Ms. Goofy said her home fries were to die for.

I have driven past that place many a time and wondered about the food. Now I'm going to need to go and check it out.

Every now and then I love a big breakfast like this - altho' probably not the pork chops for me. Maybe I'll go there for lunch!

Oh man, my favorite is the country fried steak & egg breakfast. Steak, eggs, hashbrowns, a biscuit all slathered with the cream gravy. Death on a plate, yumbo.

OMG that is a kick arse plate of breakfast goodness. I don't care if I'd have to run three extra miles to work that off, it would be worth it.

I ordered their fried chicken lunch, once. I think it was just me though, because over the years I saw other's fried chicken and mine looked nothing like it. You need the country fried steak breakfast man!

Ya know, I thought your pictures of their food looked different from the food I remember of 2 years ago. Dennis and I went back today for lunch and the food is a world away better. I had the country fried steak breakfast! Sukie's is Meathenge Approved.
