As advertised, everything here is enormous—from the larger-than-life neon sign above the door to the heaping portions of amped-up diner fare, like Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love Pancakes (studded with banana and chocolate chips), honey-dipped fried chicken, and mac and cheese. Loud music and riotous decor make the place ultra kid-friendly, as do monthy family trivia nights—your chance to find out if you're smarter than a fifth-grader.
