    Steak is the specialty here, and you may want to try the 509 Casserole on the brunch menu. It's made with sausage, potato pancakes, cream, eggs, and cheese, with a touch of spice. It's baked and served with a biscuit and a side of country-style sausage gravy.

    The morning after you quit your diet, order the World Fair Waffles. It's two buttermilk waffles sandwiching a criss-cross of bacon and topped with whipped peanut butter, candied peanuts, and a boozy honey-bourbon drizzle. Or try the Ranch Hand Eggs: a flour tortilla stuffed with scallions, Oaxaca, & pepper jack cheese served over black beans, smothered in guajillo chile sauce, and topped with eggs, salsa, and sour cream, and served with taters & toast.
