Yesterday, I cheated on my favorite diner. Gabe's Family Restaurant is our weekend haunt, and I loyally order the $2.99 egg special on every trip. But we pulled into the parking lot this Sunday, and there was not one spot available. Not one, what were we to do? We quickly scrolled through our options, and decided to head just a couple of miles away to Gus's Family Restaurant on State Road.
It was our first time dining there, so here are a few initial thoughts. There is street parking after 9:30AM, and an ample parking lot across the street that is reserved just for Gus customers. It is seat-yourself, so we were able to select where we wanted to sit from the available options (I'm always a booth over a table kinda girl). I quickly noticed that there were several condiments on the table, including sweetener packets for my coffee (which I always have to ask for at Gabe's), maple syrup, and...sriracha!Major points with me.
Of course, I ordered the same plate of breakfast basics that I would have gotten at Gabe's- two eggs (over-medium), bacon, homefries, and wheat toast. Add a cup of coffee.This plate of food was just $2.99 (Dining Deals Alert!). Now, at Gabe's the special does include one more egg. But who really needs three eggs with this? Gus's also included more homefries, an extra strip of bacon, and the wheat toast was way better.
I think that I may have a new favorite diner.
