Greasy spoon! Positively an experience. They have a full bar in a dive diner. Get there before 10 am for the special "The Pooch" off the board: 2 eggs, 3 bacon or sausage, home fries or grits and toast for $3.50. Best deal at the beach. Complete with taped booths, vintage locals and staff and sagging ceiling. This place is crusty and old but a classic! Walk there~
