For some reason I always hear peeps talking about The Don. It always seemed like a nice place and I’ve always had the urge to check it out. Well, I finally got the chance to fulfill that dream and let me tell you, It was a bust.
Nuzzled in the corner of Broadway and Donald sits The Don – your typical greasy spoon breakfast joint. The first thing you’ll notice when you walk in is the revolting decor. The bright yellow walls, weird 2 person booths, and number plaques beside the tables didn’t really get me in the mood for clubbin.
The menu seemed to have ‘something for everyone,’ from cereal to a seafood omelet to crack and hash – whatever that is. They also offer 2 different clubhouse sandos, which makes me think I blew it by choosing the clubhouse over the grilled turkey club.
When this triple decker club came out the first thing I noticed was the processed meat and a miniscule amount of lettuce and bacon. This is a club I could make at home, and that is not what I’m looking for on this journey. One thing that really blew my mind was you could add cheese for an extra $1.25. Really!?
All in all this club and The Don is forgettable. I really had high expectations for this place, and it unfortunately didn’t live up to the hype. Maybe I just had the wrong meal and shoulda stuck to a classic breaky.
I think one day I’ll go back and try the grilled turkey club. But until then, The Don needs a serious facelift. If you are interested in checking this place out, just know that they are only open till 3:30 p.m.!
Price: $9.95 for the sammy and a side
