So many places can't even do the basics, yet this place is consistently able to pull off a delicious menu. On a recent visit I had the bigger breakfast Biscuits and Gravy, which for it's price (around $11) was an amazing deal. It was served with 3 biscuits and sausages, hashbrowns and 3 eggs. As a professional cook, I know how quickly overeasy eggs can become overmedium, and yet mine were perfect.
The biscuits were tasty and flaky, very similar to some of the better ones I have had in the Southern US. My only complaint would be the hashbrowns were in need of a bit of salt. Other than that, the meal was delicious. My dining partner had the meatloaf, and said it was one of the best meatloaf plates he had ever had in his well travelled 60 years.
The ambiance is simple, considering the area it was quite calm. It helped that no fewer than 3 pairs of cops were dining throughout our meal. Great menu, great food, great diner! GO HERE!

The Argo looks, as other reviews note, unassuming from the outside, but is truly amazing once inside. The Decor is a 2 only because it is a diner in an industrial neighborhood, it is what it is. The food is amazing, and in my nearly 10 trips in the last 8 months, I have yet to be disappointed.
The specials boards are where it is at, in fact I have only once ordered something off the specials board and that was a club sandwich that was amazing, with the freshest turkey I have had in a long time. Look to the specials for a great deal and an unbelievable meal!
The staff are super attentive, even when busy, and once you've been a few times, they will begin to remember you. They will answer any questions you have in a completely non-rushed manner, despite how busy it gets during lunch hour. Don't miss the homemade desserts!!! Made fresh daily by one of the servers!!! Look out for the pavlova when she makes it...delicious!!! Make sure to give the Argo a try!!!
