    Everything is good here literally!But my personal favorites are the breakfast section, the veggie chili, and the amazing $5 (even) deal for a PBR and a well shot of your choice!

    Convenient place to eat if you're downtown with kids or headed to a show at the Fox. But the food is not good. Poor quality, poor taste. Servers are friendly, though.

    Breakfast with a little attitude. Tattoos encouraged though not required. The Oakstersam Benedict is a personal favorite.

    Can't decide if you want breakfast for dinner? Get a burger with hash browns instead of fries. Best of both worlds!

    This yuppie heaven has friendly wait staff but the real treat is the full bar. Food isn't great but the drinks are top notch. Be sure to try their Bloody Mary (it's GREAT), and also the Shakin' Jesse.

    This place is great for a sit down spot late night, especially after a show at the fox. Brunch is nothing special but definitely try the shakin jesse any time of day.
