Founded in 1946, this Carrollton landmark is nothing short of legendary. Undoubtedly one of the world’s finest diner-style restaurants, the crowds line up on a daily basis not just for the retro charm and friendly service, but for legendary chocolate pecan pie, double-scoop “freezes,” gigantic omelets, perfect griddled 6-ounce burgers, waffles, and “Whole Meal Sandwiches.” While it’s quite possibly the best breakfast place in town, the best time to go is late at night.
