Westword's Description

Get it hot, get it cheap and get it fast. In operation since 1946, 20th Street has never been anything more than a modest neighborhood diner, offering such working-class fare as eggs-and-bacon plates, cheeseburgers, tuna melts, green chile breakfast burritos, noodle bowls and chicken fried rice. Yes, you read that right: This modest, neighborhood breakfast bar has a history stretching back to the days when nearby Sakura Square was the center of Asian-American (or Asian with no American at all) culture in this city. Sixty years later, those noodle bowls and plates of fried rice are still selling. And the breakfast burrito (served all day, from open 'til close at 2 p.m.) is more or less an institution itself.

    You won't find anything short of amazing here. There's a reason it was voted Best Diner in town.

    Chicken fried steak goodness.

  • Greg H. on 06/22/10

    Get the breakfast fried rice. It's pretty awesome.

    Eat here. Yup, it's a greasy spoon with decor straight out of '61, but it's clean, friendly and the grub is great. Hash browns are crispy. Bacon was cooked perfectly.
