Editorial Review of Eppels Restaurant

It isn't surprising that Eppel's has been in business for over forty years. The South Loop restaurant seats about 120 and still manages to maintain all the appeal of a down-home diner. Green lighting fixtures that look like the perfect fit for a poker room bring just enough lighting to the restaurant's everything-you'd-expect-a-diner-to-be interior. Booths covered in flowery textiles create cushy nooks for couples sharing heaping plates of pancakes and smaller two-tops for those going at it alone with their morning coffee. And just in case the coffee isn't kicking last night's drinking endeavors to the curb, Eppel's keeps a stock of pain pills for sale behind the counter.

If you're trudging in for lunch, check out the taco salad. This pile of greens is served in a lightly fried flour-tortilla bowl bigger than your face (and probably bigger than your appetite), but tasty enough to throw carb-counting out the window. The menu lists over 18 omelets (average $6), all made with three eggs and served with toast and a side choice of grits, hash browns or rice. Those who like to start off the day with a thick slab of steak will want to go for the New York strip, served with two eggs ($10). Eppel's also offers waffles, pancakes and pastries.

Average cost: <$10
