Rate-A-Restaurant #277: Abby's Diner

Abby's

Restaurant: Abby's Diner

Location: 4862 Eagle Rock Blvd (Eagle Rock)

Type of restaurant: Diner

Abby's

We stipulated: Taking a bike ride through Eagle Rock, we decided to stop for lunch at Abby's Diner. Maria had been there a few weeks earlier, and was taken by its charm (and even more importantly, its cheap prices).

Abby's

They stipulated: Simplicity. No-frills menu, nothing unusual. No credit cards. But open late.

Abby's

What we ordered: Mike: Pulled pork sandwich (special) with cole slaw; Maria: Hamburger; Kids: Corn dog; side of onion rings.

Abby's

High point: It's no Oinkster pulled pork sandwich, but Abby's was decent and reasonably priced.

Abby's

Low point: Abby's offers several kids items for $1.95 -- a bargain. The waitress mentioned that we could get a kids corn dog that wasn't on the menu, and I assumed that meant it would be the same price as the other kids offerings. It was not. I wish she would have told me; I might have just settled on the kids stuff on the menu.

Abby's

Overall impression: I wish the food was a touch more interesting (rather than feeling like stuff that I could conceivably make), but you can't beat the prices (everything is pretty much under $5). I also like the idea of the place -- cozy, classic diner.

Chance we'll go back: I could see us hitting it again while riding around Eagle Rock, but we may first want to try some of the other nearby spots that we haven't hit yet.
