World Tour of Local Diners, revisited

Okay, I just have to add one more entry to the World Tour of Local Diners.

The Sunrise Diner on Clinton Street recently opened in an old Pudgie's. And I have to say, they have the best special going, by far, of any of the local diners we've toured.

Check it: Chicken-fried steak with sausage gravy, two eggs done any way you like 'em, toast or biscuits (the biscuits are HUGE), and home fries or grits, all for ...... drum roll please ...... $5.50!

Oh my God you guys, that chicken-fried steak is SO GOOD. And hard to come by, here in the Northeast!

I really can't speak for the rest of their menu, as Mom and I never make it past the special, because, really, why bother? That special is the best thing around. Yum.

Oh, and yes, I AM aware of the irony of following a post about working out with one about diner food. Hypocrisy is my middle name, folks.

Oh Yeah! CFS is, oh sooo good!! Sounds like a great deal! Down here in Texas it is a common plate, the CFS will cover the whole plate! I can never eat it all.

The first time I ever had chicken-fried steak was in Texas! And you're right - the portion was huuuuggge!
