Next time the Sterns are headed to their beloved Tucson, they need to fly into Phoenix and take a short hop from the airport over to Tempe and visit Harlow's Cafe.
It fits the hole-in-the-wall definition. It's been there over 30 years, feeding generations of ASU students and locals.
It's on University Dr & Hardy , just west of the ASU Campus.
It takes it's name from Jean Harlow, the movie queen and the place is loaded with pictures and posters of old movies and movie stars from the golden age of cinema. The menu is loaded with breakfast & lunch items named after old movie icons. http://www.urbanspoon.com/u/menu/262048
Breakfast specialities include The Tom Mix, Chill Wills, The Gary Cooper And Mae West's Eggs Benedict. The Omelets are outstanding as is the Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast. South of The Border breakfast specialities abound. DO NOT LEAVE TOWN WITHOUT HAVING AN ORDER OF THEIR HOT, FRESH BISCUITS, (With or without gravy)!
There's a Lunch Special every day. Today it was a roast turkey dinner- large quanity of fresh roasted turkey, mashed potatoes & from scratch turkey gravy, stuffing, green beans, turkey soup or salad and roll - $6.95!
Other Diner Standards include, Open Faced Hot Roast Beef, Chicken Fried Steak, Homemade Chili with Cheese & Onions, and just for BuffetBuster, many dishes include Green Chiles!
They're open every day from 7AM to 2PM except Christmas & Thanksgiving.
Don't have a web site - Don't need one!
