Greasiest Spoon 

Dean's Cafe

Time has stopped at Dean's Cafe, a breakfast institution in Pleasanton since the 1950s. Inside, the diner is brown, with wood-paneled walls, vinyl booths, and brown fabric blinds. The kitchen is greasy. And the omelets are huge, served on a platter the size of a clock tower in a small city. The menu offers a three-page spread with more than 250 omelets -- "one of the largest omelet menus in existence," it claims -- arranged in categories such as Portuguese (with linguica), Fisherman's (with seafood), and Hot House (with peppers). Every ingredient is mixable and matchable, so you can mix toasted almonds, scallops, and chorizo, if you wish. Each one is made with four eggs, and comes with hash browns and toast or two buttery biscuits. Dean's has every other kind of diner breakfast fare, equally greasy and filling -- bacon and eggs, pancakes, waffles, and even regular three-egg omelets like Western or ham -- but you have to flip to the back of the menu for those.
