It's hard to imagine a restaurant that epitomizes the great American diner better than Huddle House. Since 1964, the restaurant?which has locations scattered prominently throughout the southern states?has warmed bellies with burgers, hearty breakfasts, and heaping helpings of friendly hospitality, available 24-hours a day. Even the moniker is All-American: founder John Sparks came up with the name after a football huddle, hoping it would inspire his customers to gather round a table and swap stories over a warm meal.

Over the years, Huddle House's menu has expanded and adapted to changing tastes, but its focus has remained the same: old-fashioned, American comfort food. No matter what time it is, guests can order up biscuits smothered in gravy and cheese or dig into the shop's signature waffles, whipped up using a secret recipe and waffle irons that can't read. Afternoon eats include chopped steak burgers served with regular or sweet potato fries and sandwiches with a southern twist, like a Philly cheese steak stuffed between slices of thick-cut Texas toast.

Q&A with Paul Sutphen, Owner

What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?

Grins offers a Shiner Bock beer-battered chicken-fried steak. It is hand breaded in our special beer batter and then deep fried to golden perfection. Grins then smothers the chicken fried steak in our homemade country gravy.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Since 1975 students and families have been discovering that Grins offers something for everyone. Even if you?re just grabbing a quick lunch, the unique tree-house atmosphere and rambling rooms retains the cozy atmosphere of the original house on which the restaurant is based.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

I would describe Grins food as Southern, home-style cooking. Most of the menu is made from scratch, including all of our desserts.

While the heart of Johnny Carino's menu is rooted in genuine Italian traditions, forward-thinking creativity has birthed what they like to call their signature dishes. Led by executive chef Chris Peitersen, the seasoned kitchen staff blends fresh ingredients along with extra time to create high-quality, spiced Italian preparations. Diners will find entrees such as 16-layer lasagna with made-from-scratch sauce, and pizzas made with home-baked crust. Other signature choices include the spicy shrimp and chicken, baked stuffed mushrooms topped with house lemon basil cream sauce, and tiramisu made from the ground up. Entrees can be paired any selection from Carino's extensive wine list and drink menu.
