When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of casual American fare at The Kitchen Table in Huntertown.
The Kitchen Table's flavor slingers, working from stoves first lit back in 1952, prepare a menu of mouthwatering classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Wake up sluggish synapses with corned beef hash with eggs and toast ($5.25) or a short stack of fluffy pancakes ($3.25). The full country breakfast, meanwhile, lassoes together country fried steak, two eggs, potatoes, and toast ($7.95). Noontime food partakers can tongue dive into a plate of hot wings ($0.40 each), soused in sauces ranging from barbeque to hot teriyaki, or the infamous duo of ham and beans backstroking in a bowl of soup and using a cornbread flotation device ($1.95). For dinner, indulge in a juicy mushroom-and-swiss burger ($4.50), set sail for a taste of the sea with a tuna salad sandwich ($3.95), or conquer the American dream of downing an 8-ounce sirloin steak ($8.95) in record time.
The Kitchen Table
In 1952, Earl Myers and his son, Ed, built The Kitchen Table to create an eatery that combined hometown cooking with a friendly atmosphere. Now run by Rod Myers—Earl's grandson—and his wife, Mimi, the restaurant transports visitors back to the '50s with its original stools and countertop, which serves as a canvas for plates of classic diner fare and self-portraits painted in ketchup. Inside the kitchen, chefs simmer homemade soups, flip custom omelets, and transform ingredients into southern favorites such as country fried steak. They also serve smaller portions from a kids’ menu that, unlike the ability to see clowns, has no age limit.
