Hancock County is home to many great hidden treasures. Over the next few months we will be highlighting a few of these little-known gems!  This month we are featuring breakfast at The Dark Horse Restaurant!

The Dark Horse Restaurant

4136 N. Main St., Findlay
Monday – Thursday, 7 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday – Saturday, 7 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Sunday, 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Located North of Findlay is a spot that is known for a great dinner, great margaritas, and an awesome atmosphere for a night with friends.  But what many do not know is that while The Dark Horse Restaurant is a great spot for lunch or dinner you want to add it into your breakfast rotation as well!  The Dark Horse Restaurant spouts on their website that they have the best breakfast in town and we think they are definitely in the running!  While The Dark Horse offers delicious, traditional options like Grandma Oler’s Country Scramble, Corned Beef Hash, pancakes, french toast, and grits what really sets The Dark Horse breakfast apart is their unique spin on many great dishes.  Don’t hesitate to try potato skins for breakfast that are stuffed with scrambled eggs and breakfast meat or a breakfast pizza with sausage gravy, breakfast meats and plenty of cheese.  Our personal favorite is one of their many Tex Mex breakfast options.  Choose from Huevos Rancheros, a Breakfast Burrito or Quesadilla, a Chicken Chipotle Omelet, an Adovada Flat Enchilada, or just choose to top your traditional breakfast favorite with their special Red or Green Chile.  Any item off the breakfast menu is sure to make you start your day off right (and you can get it to go if you’re in a hurry!).

Hancock County is home to many great hidden gems and this month we are featuring breakfast at The Dark Horse Restaurant! •

Enjoy a breakfast quesadilla at The Dark Horse Restaurant!

Not only is The Dark Horse a crowd-pleaser for breakfast, it is a great choice for lunch and dinner as well.  No matter if your party is craving fried bar food, delicious burgers, a hearty steak or fish entree, a salad or a sandwich The Dark Horse delivers.  Their daily specials are fantastic, especially prime rib on Fridays and Saturdays or the Rib Special and they are posted weekly on The Dark Horse’s facebook page.  Another “secret” fact about The Dark Horse?  It is owned by the same family who has brought Hancock County the great food and drinks at Oler’s Bar and Grill and, luckily for us, you can get the margaritas you love at The Dark Horse as well!
