Mohawk Diner recently moved to new digs (I thought I wrote a blog post about it, but now I can’t find it. Oops). I noticed that their old digs, on Main Street in Mohawk, NY, is now Liz’s Mohawk Diner. Saturday morning I checked it out.
We know Liz from other diners.
“Is Steve on his way?” she asked me as I sat down.
“No, he has to work,” I said sadly. I’m going to suggest he go there on a day off soon, even if it has to be without me.
The place looks spiffy and bright. I admired the chicken-themed decor and perused the specials board. I decided to get eggs over medium and home fries with sausage gravy. The special included coffee and toast made with Heidelberg bread. Yum!
I really enjoyed the home fries with sausage gravy. The gravy was made with lots of sausage, and the potatoes were cooked to perfection.
The place has the kind of hometown diner atmosphere I love. The patrons and Liz were cracking jokes back and forth.
“Pay the waitress,” Liz told one.
“You know she’s a pain,” he answered.
Liz did know. “That’s why I hired her.”
She wasn’t a pain; she was a good waitress. And Liz is an excellent cook. It was a fine breakfast. Liz’s is open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. for breakfast and lunch.
