Finally made it to the Pit Stop Cafe in Black Eagle, just off of 15th Street North on the far north side.
Basically one huge room with several pool tables in the middle, some large TV screens scattered on the walls with various sporting events, and a pretty basic menu – looks like their specialty is chicken, but there were several burgers, dogs, sandwiches, and appetizers, too.
I – of course – tried a double-cheeseburger and fries. The verdict: absolutely average. Not good, not bad – just a basic burger. The fries were adequate – reminded me very much of the frozen Ore-Ida fries you make at home.
Friendly service, but very slow.
To their credit – I ordered my burger plain, as I always do – meat, cheese, bun – no lettuce, no tomato, no pickles, no onions, etc. At least half of the time I order my burger like that in any restaurant, there will be SOMETHING either on the burger or on the side of the plate. And lo and behold, they got it right – kudos.
