Jonathon's Diner Top 100

Jonathon’s may have moved out of its original flagship location, but Christine and Jonathon Erdeljac and their team are still serving the same dishes we crave just down the road on North Beckley Avenue. You’ll find the city’s best chicken and waffles here, along with some of its best gravy with plenty of black pepper. Breakfast is served all day, but don’t skip the sandwiches like the super-tall (and admittedly too big) club sandwich or the macaroni and cheese that’s full of love and no fanciness.

Top pick: A mimosa and All in One Waffle (bacon, eggs, sausage, onion, green chile, cheese and Jon’s pepper gravy, drizzled with hot sauce) at 11 a.m. on a Monday.
