A lack of food combined with a lack of imagination results in gnawing on whatever is at hand, even if all that's at hand are your hands. Spare your extremities with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of homestyle fare and drinks at Midway Family Restaurant, located on Midway Travel Plaza.
The Midway Family Restaurant appeases appetites 24 hours a day, its menu bursting with massive Midway Monster burgers, homestyle platters and breakfasts, and homemade pies. Hunger hibernates in the presence of the Double Midway Monster cheeseburger, a full-pound behemoth served with fixings and a choice of side dish ($9.99). The chicken-fried steak announces itself across a broad stage of potato and vegetables ($9.59), and the country ham and eggs captivates breakfasters with its smoky flavors, juicy textures, and "Star-Spangled Banner" renditions ($11.59). Three eggs square dance with green chilies, diced tomatoes, ground beef, jack cheese, and salsa in the Santa Fe omelette ($8.59). From in-house ovens emerge fresh-baked homemade pies, whose buttery crusts host fruit and cream fillings ($2.49/slice).
The indoor antique mall and flea market boasts more than 175 booths of jewelry, collectibles, and assorted Americana crafts. Visitors can purchase antique furniture, keepsake coins, and electric kazoos that will undoubtedly rile the purists in their all-vocal a cappella trio.
Midway Family Restaurant
Midway Family Restaurants staff takes its homestyle comfort cuisine seriously, especially when it comes to the Big 70 challenge. This platter of seven biscuits, four slices of bacon, two servings of hash browns, and 70 ounces of creamy sausage gravy is so hearty that it has only been finished by three people. Not to worry, though—the majority of visitors who aren't up to the task have a range of diner classics to choose from, all of which are served 24 hours a day. Three-egg omelets and hot cakes are crafted fresh throughout the day and night alongside platters of grilled or fried pork, steak, or chicken. Another signature dish is the monster burger, a 1-pound patty smothered in cheese and other toppings.
