The Big Egg Restaurant - West Side of Cleveland, on Detroit

Perhaps one of the cheapest restaurants in Cleveland, The Big Egg has a reputation as a seedy late night spot. The lovely interior does not live up to this reputation: it's actually quite nice. It's located near 52nd street and Detroit on Cleveland's West Side.

They're open 24 hours but only on Fridays and Saturdays. Sundays they close at 8; every other day of the week they close at 9.

I got the Chicken Parm dinner and it came with soup and ice cream for dessert. It was delicious, unassuming, and totally un-gourmet.  My friend got the salmon burger and cleaned her plate. The diet coke flowed. Refills came and came. Aretha Franklin played in the background.

There were a couple of lovely families dining there on the Sunday night we went... none of the rumors of 600 lb waitresses or rowdy drunks proved to be true. The food, however, was glorious cheap diner food.

  1. Always wanted to try this place. Good to know it's family friendly because I like to try places sometimes being hard because we usually don't have a baby sitter so it's great to go places we can bring the kids! Thanks for the review!
