Local Lunches for Less than $10: Donovan’s Irving

"Didn't win any prizes for creative ingredients, but was a solid, well cooked, and well presented "hungry man" size for the money."

THE BURGER PLATTER ($9.99 +tax) didn’t win any prizes for creative ingredients, extra special crispiness or the like, but was a solid, well cooked, and well presented “hungry man” size for the money (I couldn’t finish all the fries).

THE BREAKFAST SANDWICH ($4.49 +tax), was standard diner-style, with American cheese, bacon, and a fried egg on an English muffin. Nothing wrong with it. Plenty right with the price. You can add hash browns for $2.49. If I were to do it over (and I’d say the odds are good), I would get two breakfast sandwiches and skip the potatoes.

ATMOSPHERE: A road trip in one stop. Gas up, then head through the convenience store to the restaurant. Down home service is the stellar point here, as if the waitress might believe you are a friend of her cousin’s and is being extra nice to you. Lots of sunlight and a warm open feeling make it as comfortable as any cafe to sit and linger over a beverage with a friend and have a chat. You will not find yourself wanting for a coffee refill either; efficient caffeine delivery is given the respect it deserves.
