Westword's Description

The menu at this classic 24/7 diner is frozen in the early ´70s -- long before mainstream American food began taking on influences from other corners of the globe. Like a culinary time capsule, the King still serves Coney Island hot dogs, chiliette (egg noodles slathered in red chili and served with Saltines), biscuits and gravy, and a ham dinner complete with a ham steak, canned pineapple rings and a hot vegetable. The King has atmosphere oozing from every cracked-vinyl seat. Plus, the grub is exactly what you'd expect from a place just off the interstate: served hot, fast and in trucker-friendly portions.

    Make sure to get something with the Green Chili. It's the best!

    Feast like a king and make sure to try the elk sausage!

    The French Toast are excellent.

  • Karla R. on 02/20/10

    Cheesy, Delicious, and unhealthy: just the way I like it at 2:30am...

  • Jo G. on 12/10/10

    Get the Burrito Supreme and a cup of coffee, or as my friends call it: The Jo Special.
