    I ordered the supreme omelet and the waitress only got one ingredient right. No water until the end, she asked us to pay right when she set down the wrong food so she could leave.No ketchup or syrup.

    The chicken sandwich is basically just three dry grilled chicken fingers on a bun. The pancakes are good though. I wouldn't get anything by breakfast here again.

    It's probably great if you are drunk and need diner food. As a bus ride food, it wasn't the best idea.

    Richard Wilk, an anthropologist at Indiana University, says part of the appeal of late-night dining comes from the appeal of familiarity, and this spot has it in spades. Read more
