Holy Roller
Punk rock diner with brunch all day
Diner · Downtown · $
With a huge portrait of Iggy Pop, wide-armed crosses and the lighted-sign from now-defunct Club de Ville, the decor at this funky female-fronted Downtown diner can best be described as punk rock meets religion. Brunch is an all day affair here and the menu is comfort food with a splash of tex-mex, craft cocktails, draft beers and a bubbles-heavy wine selection. PS Open late on weekends.

Nice place, not big and perhaps not exactly "cozy" but pleasant and friendly. Island bar (full bar) with a decent number of draft beer taps. Lots of all-day items on the menu. I had the "Turkey Melt" with fries, and while I wouldn't go on a French Fry Pilgrimage to this place (they were OK, just not exceptional) the sandwich was insanely good. Seriously it's like the best thanksgiving meal you've ever had all in one sandwich. Street parking (hint: park up on the north side of 6th because it's less of a maze up there and harder to get lost or stuck).

Delicious food and impressive cocktails. We sat at the bar for it first time visiting holy roller. Pictured is the local, a delicious beef brisket and egg sandwich. I are with a fork and knife because it was too big to bite into. The green apple slices are an interesting pairing to the flavor of the brisket. The bloody Mary was fantastic, and the whiskey selection is top notch.

One of the best fried chicken biscuit sandwiches I’ve ever had! It was HUGE for only $14. The chicken was fried to perfection with some sort of cornmeal coating. I would’ve liked a little more sriracha butter, since I could barely taste it under the massive hunk of chicken breast. The biscuit was very good, although it crumbled very quickly when I tried to pick it up. In general I prefer my biscuits a little flakier and more buttery. I also got the cookies n cream yellow cake pancakes, which were amazing - not too sweet like others have said. Overall, I appreciated the care put into every dish here, although the menu was a little uninspired. Great atmosphere and service, too.
