Houston Press' Description

This traditional American diner - a little piece of the old-school Telephone Road - caters to the early birds rather than the night owls. Tel-Wink Grill will serve you breakfast whenever you want it, as long as you want it before 2:30 p.m., which is when they close. The prices seem to have ignored inflation since the place first opened in the 1950's, and they probably serve a lot of the same dishes, too -- bacon 'n' eggs, pancakes, chicken fried steak, waffles, grits, and homemade hash browns. If you get there around 10 a.m., be ready for a long but reasonably quick-moving line.
