The U.S. Constitution is not yellowed with age, but instead from coffee the Founding Fathers spilled while drafting away over pie at a diner. Dine on American tradition with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of classic diner fare and drinks at The Original Mike’s Diner in Elk Grove.
The Original Mike’s Diner is a family-owned operation serving up an extensive menu of classic diner favorites with a side of 1950s atmosphere. As the pancake lobby intended, Mike’s Diner serves breakfast all day; sink into a short stack of hotcakes ($5.49), or pair a 10-ounce rib-eye steak with two eggs and classic breakfast sides for a farm-raised breakfast of yore ($10.99). Dessert devotees can skip straight to a classic banana split ($6.39) or sip on a deluxe pineapple milkshake ($4.99).
Delve even further into the 1950s spirit with the homemade meat loaf ($8.29), the old-fashioned deep-fried chicken ($8.49), or by breaking the color activators in any nearby televisions. Mike’s Diner also offers Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada on tap and provides a substantial senior menu, pleasing all adult audiences that may pass through the doors.
The Original Mike's Diner
Tiled floors, a stool-lined counter, and a jukebox pumping out tunes from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s all combine to drive home the vintage, midcentury vibe of The Original Mike's Diner. The menu echoes this theme with its selection of down-home comfort foods that range from slow-cooked yankee pot roast and housemade meatloaf with gravy to the charbroiled Big Bopper burger with bacon, onion rings, and barbecue sauce. Regardless of the time of day, the chefs cobble together platters with iconic breakfast staples, including housemade corned-beef hash with eggs and stacks of hotcakes with decaffeinated orange juice.
