Tulip - what do you order?

I'm always surprised when Tulip gets lumped in with the "steak houses" of the city. I mean, I eat there regularly so I see that people do order the steak there but still, never think of it as a steakhouse.
Personally, I love it there, but very rarely order the steak - order the Porterhouse maybe once every year or two. Once in a while, when I am seriously protein deprived I'll get the Steak & Eggs. My favs are the chopped steak and gravy, the spaghetti, the lemon cream pie, the ceasar salad, and the jumbo burger -- I think of Tulip as 'down home' cooking.
What are your favs at the Tulip?
I too have gone there dozens of times and only had steak once. I usually get the clubhouse or the spaghetti and meat sauce. The chopped sirloin is also surprisingly satisfying. To be honest, I can't put my finger on what the appeal is of this place, but I love it.
The lamb shank special on Fridays and Saturdays. At around $10.00, it's probably the best-priced, tastiest, heartiest piece of lamb to be had in the city.
Growing up the Tulip was where you might go if you couldn't get in a seat at the Diamond... am I showing my age?
Just curious since so many hounds seem to like the place - are the ingredients for things like the cesar and pies "real" and/or "homemade" - like real whipped cream, decent non-Renee's cesar dressing, etc? I am not aiming to criticize - just curious about the place.
