Dining Guide

Pat’s Kitchen

The black-and-white-tiled floors and deep vinyl booths here hint that the Fonz might be in the back flipping burgers. Fortunately, a menu heavy on comfort food matches the meticulously sourced atmosphere. Burgers and sandwiches are staples, including an impressive Philly cheesesteak bracketed with your choice of house fries, tater tots, or (personal favorite) onion rings. The Cubano Burger hails warming US-Cuban relations with its refried beans, guacamole, and jalapeño slivers, naturally. We were surprised to see a new vegetarian burger on offer, a bold nod to changing border diets. Breakfast, available all the time, is big on homemade waffles and blueberry pancakes, but we’ll take the breakfast sandwich, thick with beef, cheese, grilled peppers, and onions, all topped with an over-easy egg. Whether it’s breakfast or dinner, save room for nostalgic fountain-style milkshakes, floats, and sundaes.
