The cooks at Theios Restaurant crack eggs, grill burgers, and stack sandwiches in the casual confines of a 24-hour diner with free Wi-Fi. The towering Theios club intimidates timid tongues with a stockpile of ham, turkey, bacon, and Swiss and American cheeses ($7.99), while the smotherburger pads a juicy beef patty with a hearty brigade of sautéed onions, green peppers, and mushrooms ($7.59). Served all day, the breakfast menu dresses its baked-in-house raisin bread in an egg tuxedo to transform it into raisin French toast ($4.99), and scrambled eggs, ham, and three cheeses squeeze between two piping-hot slices of homemade white toast to become the Spartan sandwich ($6.99). Lay-your-own eggs and make-your-own omelette options allow diners to scheme their own eggy creation from a handsome selection of meats, cheeses, and veggies ($5.99 plus $0.50 per ingredient).
Sizzling bacon, runny egg yolks, potatoes crisping to a golden brown—breakfast's sights and sounds aren’t constrained to morning at Theios Restaurant, where chefs have been making a.m. feasts 24 hours a day since 1976. The chefs’ never-ending breakfast also consists of mexican omelets and homemade raisin french toast, though around lunchtime diners are more likely to order grilled cheese sandwiches and half-pound all-beef burgers with toppings such as olive sauce. With such appealing staples, not to mention all-night hours and complimentary Wi-Fi, it’s not surprising the diner is a favorite hangout of students from nearby Michigan State University, who often prep for exams there by carving notes on Sartre’s Being and Nothingness into their toast.
