    This is the sort of place you go to soak up excess alcohol that is still coursing through your system from the night before using the grease from things like "the mess" or an order of their chili cheese fries. When I was 40 years younger this place would have been perfect. Now it's just an excuse to take a few years off my remaining life if I'm in the mood to hurry the inevitable along... ;-D>

      Oh. Shit. Got it.

      Maybe I'll order those chili cheese fries.

      But sadly since I don't live in that hood it doesn't work as well.

      My favorite pancakes ever but, I won't go anymore and endure those lines only to have others known by the staff to waltz right in and be seated.

        I go there to people watch.

        If only "eye candy" was edible ...

          What kind of eye candy we talking about here?

          Nice location, but very crowded on weekends and the food is not better than you can get in other Long Beach restaurants, and not as good as my favorite Long Beach breakfast places.
