Novelty is a hell of a thing, and the Twisted Spoke certainly isn't your standard issue diner (in fact, it's really more of a bar). But on Saturdays from midnight until 2:30 a.m., the Spoke features a diner-worthy phenomenon known as Smut and Eggs. With the bartenders telling the festive crowd to steel itself for a double dose of vintage '70s porn, this ain't your momma's breakfast (the Spoke's own Web site sagely advises, "The porn featured…is not of the 'soft-core' variety that your girlfriend might find erotic").
Co-owners Cliff and Mitch Einhorn started the Spoke in 1995 as a "family biker bar," with the Fat Boy, a big honkin' burger fitted with a half-pound beef patty between a garlic toasted egg bun, topped off with your choice of cheddar, swiss, grilled onions, bacon and barbecue sauce, holding court as its most popular item. Twisted Spoke also serves Jim Beam on-tap, and its prices are easy on the Harley chain wallets. Keep your eyes peeled for the skeleton straddling a chopper over the entrance.
