Omega Coney Island of North Carolina transplants traditional Detroit-style hot dogs and deli fare to their southern location and serves the Americana for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Chefs crack eggs and whip them into protein-rich omelets, breakfast platters, and sandwiches, decorating the yellow, yolk-laden canvas with gentle brush strokes of sausage links and arabesque bacon strips. Detroit-style Coney Island dogs arrive at tables dressed with multifarious fixings, such as chili, ground beef, onions, and mustard, and burgers made from 1/3-pound Angus-beef patties create an edible measuring device for converting dollars into British currency. Rich reubens and patty melts also vie for table space, and cake and pie change their appearance and sports team affiliations each day.
Though Twin City Diner opened in 1988, the turquoise booths, wood-paneled walls, and black-and-white photos displayed throughout its dining room lend the eatery a refined, contemporary-American feel. The diner?s chefs delight in updating traditional southern comfort dishes with modern touches?from BLT sandwiches layered with fried green tomatoes to burgers slathered in chili, cheese, and slaw.
Patrons can chow down within the sleek confines of the dining room, or they can mosey outside to the patio. In both areas, Twin City Diner maintains a comfortable family atmosphere.
