Since 1938 they have been serving up their classic Chicken Pie Plate. For $7.50 you get soup, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, vegetables, bread and the star of the meal, a chicken pot pie.
Hand made and bursting with chicken, these little gems were wonderful. Mixing both shredded and chunks of chicken, light and dark meat, I could eat one of these everyday. And I am guessing some people do.
Once you add the slice of homemade pie that comes with this meal, I am not sure you could find a better bargain anywhere in the city. It's a wonderful lunch, in the perfect retro setting, complete with a counter, and if you need, they'll even pack it all up to go.
