Three Dogz Diner serves up traditional American diner fare and Southern cuisine for breakfast and lunch in a cozy, kid-friendly diner environment. Smoking specialists layer beef or pork barbeque ($5.99) and turkey sandwiches ($5.99) with thin slices of meat that has been seasoned with special dry rubs and sauces, then slowly smoked on-site over the objections of hoarse smoke detectors. The steak and cheese loads almost a pound of brisket grilled with veggies and american cheese onto an 8-inch roll ($8.39), and daily specials add edible unpredictability throughout the week. For breakfast, sample the biscuits and gravy, with two homemade biscuits bobbing in a sea of homemade sausage gravy accompanied by a pair of eggs any style ($5.79). Sneaky chefs poach the finest eggs from Faberge farms for the eggs benedict, then stack them on english muffins, add succulent ham, and smother the steaming stacks in hollandaise sauce ($6.79).
