      George Webb is a casual diner, but recently one man got a little too casual at one of their restaurants in Germantown

      The man entered the location at W15800 Mequon Road, clad only in socks, boxer shorts and a gray overcoat around 4:50 a.m. Aug. 23.

      A restaurant employee told him he would need to put on shoes to be served.

      Instead the man then pulled off his boxer shorts and fled naked from the waist down.

      Police searched the area but were unable to find the hungry streaker.

          My favorites are in Vancouver, BC. For the greatest breakfasts served with the finest abuse, I highly recommend The Elbow Room Cafe. Ask for Patrick as your waiter and be prepared. You won't get the old style deli schtick or Ed Debevic's treatment here. They also serve a fabulous cheeseburger. My second choice is De Dutch Pannekoek House. Check out the menus and pictures on both sites.

            These are the best:

            #1 The Windmill Diner in New Milford CT. I don't eat sausage anymore, but they have this hot sausage cooked on the grill that is fantastic. My traditional order there would be two eggs over, hot sausage, potatoes, a toasted buttered hard roll and coffee. It is so good. I live in Vermont now and there is no such thing as hard rolls here. Just something called "bulky" rolls that doesn't come close. It is not one of your atmospheric diners ~ just a normal looking one. I like the people that own it ~ they work hard and keep it clean. I went in there a couple of months ago, and the owner was still there, working the floor, thirty years after I first started going there.

            #2 Blue Benn in Bennington VT. This is an atmospheric diner, and the food is so good at all times, but breakfasts are great there. Pancakes and donuts are high on the list. The problem is that on the weekends especially it is really hard to get a seat, because its small, and I am not the patient type.

                Earl's on Peoria Avenue just west of the 101 in Peoria, Arizona. Week ends ask for Letty's area.
                Wonderful light biscuts with sausage and bacon gravy and two eggs any style. $3.30. Great Mexican breakfast foods if that's what you prefer. Peoria restaurants are all smoke free.

                    Besides my own kitchen, a place in Bar Harbor, Maine called Jordan's, great breakfast food (they line up out side for tables), especially the blueberry pancakes

                      Mama's Place in San Francisco (in North Beach). Extraordinary, but often you'll have to wait in line. The baked goods are legendary.

                        The Omlette House in Las Vegas 2160 W. Charlston Blvd, you name it they will put it in a 6 egg omlette.

                        Sams Restaurant in Fairfield Tex. on I45, true road food, great breakfast but better hamburger. Get it on the homemade bun.

                        [url][/url]http://www.samsrestaurant.com/

                        Kelleys Country Cooking in Houston Tex. Hard to beat for breakfast. The Iron Skillet Breakfast has 3 eggs, hashbrowns or grits, bisquits and gravy and a 1lb ham steak. Their pancakes are huge and their prices are very reasonable.

                          Kelley's is certainly the place for quantity and value. I'd love to be able to finish that Grand Slam: Texas sized Chicken Fried Steak, 3 eggs your way, golden hash browns or grits (a serving of hash browns I've calculated is a generous 2 cups of shredded potatoes) and toast or biscuits with country cream gravy but I seldom get that hungry!

                          The Houston Press did a recent write up on Kelley's in which the reviewer calculated a single pancake weighs 1 pound.

                          I prefer Tel-Wink Grill on (celebrated) Telephone Rd.




                          The cfs isn't as good but I can handle the quantity of food and the hash browns are worth the trip alone.

                          Tel-Wink has been serving up breakfasts for at least twice as long as Kelley's:



                          The wait for a table on weekends averages a half hour they say. I tried it once -- not a space to be found in the parking lot and all I could see thru the windows were people standing, waiting for a table.

                                  By the way-Big Eds in downtown Raleigh,N.C.has fantastic breakfasts.Their grits are the best I have had thusfar in my travels,the portion of sliced country ham was huge and I loved the little detail of fresh sliced tomato on the side from the outdoor market from around the corner.

                                    Avg. breakfast as pictured will run about $6 TO $8. Without the CFS about $4 to $6 including drink.

                                    oltheimmer, glad you posted that,I always forget about the Tele-Wink. We used to go there a lot when I was growing up in the 60s but forget since we moved out of the old neigborhood.

                                    Tele-Wink by the way corner of Telephone Rd. and Winkler.

                                      I happened to remember that meal was exactly $6.10 including tax (there was also iced tea). It's not a steal but prices are reasonable.

                                      Texianjoe - ever been to Franks' Grill?

                                        Franks Grill on Telephone off Woodridge. Great place. I worked at Charlie Thomas Ford around the corner for a number of years and we would send out for breakfast at least 3 times a week. They are converting an old Kips Big Boy on Spencer in Pasadena into a Franks Grill, I do not know if it is the some people but you can bet I will be there for the grand opening to find out.

                                            I think there are several Frank's around now but I've never been to any of them (I actually go out for breakfast very rarely; the photo above was from lunch about 2pm one day, which is why there was toast instead of biscuits!)

                                            If I were to go to that original location on Telephone, what would be the thing to order? Anything other than breakfast? Don't they do grilled biscuits or something like that?

                                                I don't remember the grilled biscuits. I usually get the liver and onions or CFS for lunch. They have all the normal diner stuff. If you do not go for breakfast check their hours, they open at something like 4am and close right after lunch.

                                                  Thanks. I'll have to try it sometime. Thanks for your input on this thread and to all the others for the feedback on the pictures.

                                                    Just want to agree with the posters who mentioned Kitchen Little in Mystic, Connecticut. The trouble with this place is that the lines can be so long for such few seats. The last two times I have tried, I ended up going somewhere else because of the wait.

                                                    Some other terrific breakfast places I have enjoyed that I haven't seen mentioned in this thread yet:

                                                    Tempo Cafe in Chicago
                                                    Blue Heaven in Key West
                                                    Tecolote in Santa Fe
                                                    Frank's Diner in Spokane, WA
                                                    Blanche & Bill's Pancake House in Bridgewater Corners, VT

                                                    wheregreggeats-
                                                    I know what you mean about Barksdale in Memphis. Even though the food was good, though not great, I really, really liked the place. Because they weren't very crowded, the owner spent most of the time at my table talking Vols football with me.

                                                        I was in Berea Kentucky recently and had breakfast and dinner at The Pantry restaurant. I think it used to be called the Waffle Pantry. Really good home cooking.

                                                          Best breakfast I ever had was at a tiny truck stop in Forsyth, Montana. It didn't even have a name or sign. I was really down on my luck, trying to move from Chicago to Seattle, and my pick-up kept breaking down. I had a chicken-fried steak and hash browns that fueled me for the next day and a half.

                                                          I eventually made it to Seattle and survived to eat more elegant breakfasts like the one they used to serve at Snoqualmie Falls Lodge (now the Salish)but nothing sustained me like that fortuitous meal in Forsyth.

                                                            We had breakfast this last Saturday at Lilly's Kitchen Table in Grove City, Ohio, and it was truly a Michael and Jane Stern's kind of place. We have eaten breakfast and lunch there many times before but always thru the week. This time it was a rainly, gloomy Saturday morning and the place was packed with groups of neighborhood people enjoying their morning meal and each other, laughing, talking, and thoroughly enjoying the early morning hour. It was so enjoyable; in addition to the food being good, and cooked from scratch, not brought in frozen and ready to be nuked, just being a part of the friendly atmosphere. It made a rainy day truly warm and cozy.
