I love Dizzy's. I'd go there more often, but it's more "restuarant" prices - rather than a true greasy spoon. But it makes sense, as there's little greasy food to be found. They specialize in healthy, home-cooked dishes. My favorite's the meatloaf.
It's a diner atmostphere - just a modest space of simple tables and a long counter. There's outdoor seating too - though it fills up fairly quickly.
The food is excellent, no doubt about it. So long as you're expecting REAL food, and not diner grub. But you can hardly be dissapointed with the twists on standard diner fare - fresh, whole grain bread for the sandwiches, puree accents and the like provide something a little nicer when friends and relatives come to visit from far-off suburban realms.
The staff is almost always super-friendly and energetic. There may be a wait for the food - good things take time, and the kitchen's usually overloaded by the crowd.
Weekend brunch is an awesome option - though lines are usually longest for this. Good, solid breakfast with the usual Dizzy's embellishments - and the optional mimosa.
Note: CASH ONLY. We always forget this and have to go back to an ATM - which is usually fine because it's a wait for the table anyway.
