    This is an old-school diner with old-school prices. It's your typical greasy-spoon, but we're especially big fans of the biscuits and gravy. The line can get long on weekends Read more

    The longtime Rae’s is a neighborhood great where locals line up for a chance at the formica counter or the wide booths that run the room. Read more

    For the ultimate hang over delight: runny sunny side up eggs with their corn beef hash! (don't forget the pineapple on top!). And if you can fit in a slice of pie to honor Clarence and Alabama's scene

    Super old school greasy spoon with great, cheap food. Get the Country Breakfast: two eggs, two biscuits with gravy, two sausage patties and home fries, for around $6.

    Opened 1958. Classic 1950s diner with red leather booths, vintage light fixtures, neon sign and exterior wall made of rock.

    Make sure you don't have anywhere to go afterwards because you will smell... Like bacon, eggs and maple syrup.

    In an oddly funny way, I kinda like when they refer to me as "lady"... "hey lady, ready to order?"... "ready for your check, lady?"
