Beck & Don’s Kountry Kitchen – Mechanicsburg

On Tuesday August 2, 2011 the breakfast stop was Beck & Don’s Kountry Kitchen, formerly the Walnut Cafe in Mechanicsburg. We reviewed the Walnut Cafe last year and found it to be an “ok” place to eat. Earlier this year we stopped in and found things slightly better, but now a change of owners has this little breakfast and lunch place looking even better than ever. There were more cars than usual in the parking lot today and the counter area was full, plus there were more people at various tables. The inside of the restaurant looked the best I’ve ever seen it. There were 2 guys working the kitchen and 2 waitresses working the floor, so the staff has doubled since the last visit. Everything seemed clean and neat. They had breakfast sandwiches as well as traditional breakfasts on the menu, including pancakes and french toast. The prices seemed very reasonable but you need to know that home fries (which were very good) are one dollar extra with every breakfast. Today we had our regular breakfast of two eggs, home fries and a side. Bill had the bacon and it was good (2 slices), Craig ordered the sausage but we later realized that he never got it with the meal. The coffee was not good at all and needs improvement. One waitress had taken our order, but someone else brought the food out, so I guess we weren’t paying close enough attention and didn’t catch that mistake.  Several more folks came in as we ate and it seems as though it’s a popular place. Beck & Don’s Kountry Kitchen is open from 5AM to 2PM on Monday thru Friday and 6AM to 2PM on Saturday. They are closed on Sunday. Breakfasts seemed to range from $2 up to $5.95. The lunch menu included burgers and sandwiches, the highest price I noticed was $6.95 for a double cheeseburger and fries.  We wish Beck and Don good luck and will stop by again to see how they’re doing and see if some things improve.
