The scene is a classic American diner: uniformed waitresses walk past rows of booths, pausing to refill coffee mugs and set down towering stacks of pancakes. Large, sunlit booths provide parents and kids with a venue to converse or sign a treaty that finally ends bitter remote-control battles. Behind the service window, cooks bustle about the kitchen, whipping up generous portions of biscuits and gravy, three-egg omelets, and Mexican-inspired specialties—including chilaquiles, eggs with chorizo, and giant breakfast burritos. Come lunchtime, kitchen staffers turn their attention toward hearty burgers, hot specialty sandwiches, and chicken-fried steaks.
