Boy oh boy when you stumble upon a diner/luncheonette that’s not retro, but the real deal, do not pass go! Menu on a sign above the counter on the wall. 10 faded red stools. A single griddle in front of the takeout window and a line out the door. I went with the first thing on the list: the Cheesy Western. Burger. Fried egg. Relish. Raw onion. Melted American cheese. On-a-bun! It fits in your mouth without an acrobatic act. Every bite is a good one. In fact, a perfect one. It’s gonna set you back $3.25  and they don’t take plastic. Who’s in?
