Ravenous night owls

Our visitors always beg to head for Katz’s (of Never Kloses fame). The line stretches far during breakfast hours on many weekends. Breakfast hours last pretty much until suppertime.

All the portions are generous. The noise-level is high. The glasses of fresh-squeezed juice are filled to the brim. There are those who can’t deal with Katz’s, mostly those who want to moon over a menu for hours. The waitstaff is busy and truly appreciates those who know what they want.

In our case, they usually want extra pickles. They want extra applesauce. They want double orders of potato pancakes. They want turkey sandwiches (there are always plenty examples of the entire bird ready for carving). Some want stuffed cabbage. They want Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray tonic.

It’s best to go in the middle of the night and when people are really hungry.

Also not to be overlooked is the Magnolia Cafe on South Congress. It’s more of a hang-out than a food place, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of people there refueling at almost any hour.

Taco Cabana is quick, and the pico de gallo is usually right up there with the best.

And there are those who swear by Kerbey Lane.

Sam’s is open on the weekend until nearly dawn or until the food runs out. The Washington Post has just published an account of a BBQ tour that includes Sam’s but makes no comment on the mutton other than to mention that it’s there.
