The Golden West has been one of my favorite places ever since I moved to Baltimore 7 1/2 years ago. It used to be located in a teeny little rowhouse, and now is in a nice big space all its own... some things haven't changed though - delicious food, cool/kooky artwork and decorations, and reasonable prices. Oh, and lines! There can sometimes be a wait, especially on the weekends, so if you're impatient about that sort of thing, go on a weeknight or non-peak hours (weekend brunches are particularly busy). I have heard complaints that the waitstaff is inconsistent, but I would say that the hipsters have gotten nicer the past few years! On to the food... the green chile sauce is the star at the Golden West, and the breakfast foods can't be beat. I am particularly a fan of the breakfast polenta with carne adovada, a spicy pulled pork that melts in your mouth. They also have a delightful bar, and fun bar foods - including tater tots with yummy dipping sauces! Desserts are from local baker Rose (don't know her last name) and her cakes never disappoint.

The food is really good and the atmosphere, with the funky art on the walls is fun, but the service is inconsistent. Wait staff are never fast, and on a bad visit, it's excruciating. This has the potential to be a 5 star place.

The Golden West is a great restaurant in Hampden. Their golden west french toast is quite possibly the best french toast in existence. Dont worry breakfast foods are available all day, so no need to go early for brunch. The menus come in record sleeves, and there are tons of things to look at while you wait for your food. And hey - you might get seated at a table next to John Waters - I did!

Golden West has one the the best brunches in Baltimore--a few southwestern themed dishes plus the usual pancakes/eggs etc. Waiters can be a bit, um, hands off, and the line is usually long for a table, so be patient and remember the treats that await you. The bar in back is smoke-free, whimsically decorated, and all in all a delightful place to hang out for an evening. As long as the AC is working (not always the case!).
