If you’re going down Western Avenue and happen to blink, you’ll miss this lunchtime spot that resembles an abandoned shack. If you do muster up the courage to saunter through the front door, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into a Mississippi short-order grill. The assembly line of cooks whips up mile-high, shaved-to-order corned beef sandwiches, moist meatloaf between soft white bread (Tue, Thu, Sat, Sun only), and breakfast hangover cures like buttery flapjacks, bowls of grits and griddled ham with fried eggs.
