    I eat here all the time, and yes, I've seen the kitchen. Ask for the greasy carb coma menu, in the bright neon colors! Try the panini menu; they're all awesome. They've also got a new hot dog bar.

    This 24 hour joint is a classic in more ways than one. Vinyl booths galore, but messy foods at low prices, and rowdy local flair, too. Free Wi-Fi makes it all the better. Wifi password: 100deluxediner

    The $8 omelette is heaven. 2 meals worth of fluffy eggs with any topping, pancakes tasting like candy (or crack), and a mountain of hash browns that aren't soggy or greasy. A yummy bargain!

    Great spinach & feta omelette. Spinach is chopped up and mixed perfectly with the eggs.

    The Big Fat French Toast is the most amazing thing if you are craving sweet. So. Much. Win.

    Re: Biscuits & Gravy... My fave bkfst dish ever. Plus, I'm kind of drunk, & still won't eat it... That should help you decide... Hehe

    Overpriced, slow service but a typical 50s diner. Conveniently off Clark Street as you enter the heart of Rogers Park. If you can, go a bit further north to the Heartland Cafe... a better choice.

    Had a cold omelette and hash browns that were uncooked and still frozen inside. Have been here a few times and am underwhelmed.
