One thing is for certain, The Gambler at Tank’s Bar and Grill is not for the light eater.

The monster of a meal - two pancakes, one slab of french toast, bacon and hash brown and a ‘girlie’ size omelet - is often a two person job.

That said, a waitress at the Wayne Avenue eatery established in 1989 says many have taken it on solo.

She recalled one customer chowing down a Gambler, several wings and most of his girlfriend’s Lumber Jack (three eggs, ham, hash browns and three pancakes).

Somehow he didn’t even explode.

Tank’s is known around town for its thick, juicy burgers and hand cut fries.

But its breakfast can’t be overlooked partly because many of the items are so dang big.

They are tank-sized really.

The so-called girlie omelets, for instance, look like a full-grown woman until you see its mother.

Both fluffy omelets come stuffed or covered in any combination of green peppers, banana peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, salsa, ham, bacon, sausage and American, cheddar, Swiss, provolone and pepper jack cheese.

Breakfast and brunch on Saturday and Sunday are often busy, but that shouldn’t be a deterrent. Breakfast items are served all day and are worth the wait.
