I just called Ponzio's; they're still open. In fact, if you live in the region, you could probably still get there before they close for the night. They're open until 1:00 AM.

A close second is The Country Squire diner in Broomall, PA. Now in SXM, my favorite restaurant also no longer exists (I am seeing a trend here!). It was Don Carlos and had great breakfasts and fun, Tex-Mexish food for lunch and dinner. Don Carlos was the owner's cat and he had the run of the restaurant. While SXM is the gourmet capital of the Caribbean, I prefer fun and beachy places.

Thanks for the info. I know that they had closed at one time and I thought they were looking for another location but did not know that they had reopened. They are now on my list for a road trip!

Pastrami omelet sounds awesome. Reminds me of my favorite breakfast skillet at an Albanian-owned diner in my hometown. In addition to standard diner fare, the family that runs it serves up a few Mediterranean specials as well, and has thrown together some hybrids...one being the Grecian Skillet...eggs however you want them, topped with chopped up gyro meat, sauteed onions, grilled tomatoes, and a ramekin of chilled tzatziki sauce to top it all. Grilled pita instead of toast.

tell you what Cheesecake Factory was pretty good. Only reason we went was we got a gift certificate as a birthday gift....I had shepherds pie and chicken croquettes, my wife goes with her friends sometimes for lunch, she got some chinese chicken salad or something, and we split a piece of Godiva chocolate cheesecake for dessert.

Food was pretty darn good for a chain restaurant...well prepared, huge portions...

Worst vote goes for either Applebees or Olive Garden. Been to each once in my life, and that was enough.

I like Bob evans if i'm going out for breakfast, they make the best biscuits and gravy.
Other then that I dont have a favorite chain restaurant, they are pretty much all the same just different variations on the same crap.

I must say, though, that I will put a lot of effort into finding a small privately owned restaurant with killer food and great servive before I settle for the big boys. I like to support great local businesses.


Greaaaat choices...hope to get into the Brewhouse..
