Chicken and Waffles, Meatloaf Sandwich (add an egg, bacon and avocado to it) and biscuits/gravy (which is only available on the weekends) are my favorites. Come hungry.

To beat the crowds, be here before 8am weekends, by 6am weekdays.



Crash your car good!

One of my favorite restaurants in the city. I literally crashed my car (well, I got rear-ended) on my way for a fried egg sandwich during an ice storm (I'm from Chicago, i thought the roads would be fine!). It's that good.

Lots of fresh and local ingredients, unique menu items, and booze! You might even spot a celeb.

Parking can be a struggle and seating is limited, so be prepared to wait, especially if you're there for breakfast. But it's all worth it. Enjoy!

Modern diner with locally-sourced

Modern diner with locally-sourced deliciousness. A little loud but extra seating in back quieter. Chicken/waffles stand out. Great coffee.

Awful service and poor quality of food

After my partner ordered a well done burger with crispy bacon only, he was served a rare burger. The female manager on duty asked if everything was ok. We explained that it was not. She took the burger and said it would be ready in 4 minutes. I have worked in restaurants for many years and have not seen a burger cooked to well done in 4 minutes. About 10 minutes later, the burger was returned but without the bacon.
The waitress would refill cokes but would have to be asked on two occasions to bring a straw. The straw was brought with the first coke, but never on refills.
This is a place i will not return to nor will I recommend it to anyone for dining out.

Great food 24 hours a day

This place is a must after club hopping in the warehouse district. Always consistently good and never a disappointment. What they need to do is bring back the pork belly baguette die for. the waiter told me it was seasonal? Since when was pork seasonal...oh well, still gets five stars!

What a meal!!

First had the Charred Bitters, the perfect combination of crunch and loads of flavor. But then the Chicken and Waffles came out... wowee, this is comfort food beyond compare. I was in heaven and practically licked the plate dry... (My husband said I had maple syrup in my hair.. yikkes)

Highly recommend especially when you want breakfast in the middle of the nite!

limited breakfast menu for a 24 hour joint

It?s actually called 24 Diner.

I finally had time to visit for breakfast. The weather was really gross outside and I found a nice escape. The interior has really changed since it was a Waterloo; very clean and contemporary. It was only 25% full and I got a table right away. I waited a little while to be greeted but that gave me time to check out the menu.

The breakfast menu really pushes you towards an egg based meal. I?m not such a fan but found Chicken and Waffles. I asked about the Sparkies: jalapenos stuffed with pan sausage and cheese and fried. They were great but I only got two. I wouldn?t share if it was just two of us. The chicken and waffle was good. The waffle came with a maple bourbon butter that was amazing! The chicken is boneless and fried. The only complaint about the chicken was that it was very plain tasting. I think a salty fried chicken mixed with the sweet maple syrup would kill. Kinda like Roscoe's in LA. I liked it and they give you a lot of chicken. More than I could eat.

I had good service and had a nice breakfast. I think based on what I saw the lunch and dinner menu is far better and for a 24 hour place that surprises me that the breakfast menu is small. I totally miss the Biscuits with Sausage gravy that Waterloo served. It was a breakfast staple?so good. I am eager to go back and try some of the other offerings. One thing I don?t like is how close the other tables are. This is a gossip free diner as you are elbow to elbow with the next table. Overall my meal with coffee was $18 prior to tip.

The parking lot can get crowded and it?s at 6th & Lamar so traffic can be tough depending on where you approach it from. I think you should check it out for yourself.

Avoid the pork belly sandwich

I know that this sandwich sounds a bit gross but I like to try new things. The waitress assured me it was good though a tad heavy. I took a chance and LOST...the ""pork"" was tough and tasteless. Well it tasted a bit gamey actually. Was this a javelina from South Texas? My friends both liked their choices (a cheese burger and roasted chicken) so I haven't completely given up on the place but seriously just say no to this sandwich.
