Dallas Observer's Description

CLOSED Retro chic with a side of short-order grub is what is served at this 24-hour joint near Baylor Hospital. It's been open since 1967, and it shows. There are well-worn red vinyl counter stools and booths as well as a healthy dose of neon. The menu offers classic diner breakfasts around the clock like the 2 x 4 "The Woody" -- two pancakes, two eggs, two strips of bacon and two sausage links. The burger patties are one-third pounders and include items like a jalapeño burger with cheese and the Master Burger double cheeseburger (listed as the "All Time Favorite" on the menu). Whatever you order, request the tater tots. Don't worry, the food won't send you to the ER close by. Just be prepared for scenesters making scenes.

    Angelina is the only server to have.... And better hope Ms. Bettys is on the griddle.
