Best Late-Night Dining - 2008
After closing down the clubs, pretty much any place still serving food—especially breakfast—is wonderfully gratifying, right? Unfortunately, night owls usually only have random fast food franchises or nasty Denny's to pick from. Then along came Rooster. During the weekend, this diner is open until 3 a.m. The décor isn't much to look at with those bleary eyes (bare and minimal, with aluminum chairs), but the menu is full-range from sandwiches to salads, and everything's under $9. But what Rooster is most famous for is the breakfast burritos. Choose either bacon or sausage, and you get a jumble of heaven with cheese and crispy potatoes wrapped in a warm tortilla. Need another reason why this place is so awesome? Every table comes with its own bottle of Tapatio.
