Rock-Cola 50s Cafe


Inside a low-slung cinderblock building painted over in an American Graffiti motif, diner-style breakfast and lunch platters get the short-order treatment in a counter-side kitchen that has seen its share of burgers and fried mushrooms. Serving sizes keep the Styrofoam clamshell in business: A breaded pork fritter nearly eclipses its plate, and the Mile High Club—buttressed by three pieces of Texas toast—replaces the tassled toothpick with a steak knife. A full order of homemade biscuits and gravy costs $4.99, and the $7.99 Trailer Park covers a large order of hashbrowns with three scrambled eggs, ham, green peppers, onions, and melted cheese. Splurge on the cherry flavoring (30 cents) in your Coke.
