The interior is a wonderfully preserved example of the classic mid Century diner aesthetic
Chicken Fried Steak and country gravy, breakfast style with eggs and potatoes
The Chicken Fried Steak is wonderfully tender with a crispy peppery crust that somehow manges to resist becoming soggy under the envelopment of the velvety country gravy. This is the perfect treatment for potentially tough cuts of beef such as cube steak. While the eggs were a tad over cooked the potatoes had a crispy shell that gave way to a creamy buttery interior. The steak is also available for lunch and dinner and is served with side items in place of the eggs and 'taters.
Inspired by the famous Bobcat Bite in Santa Fe, New Mexico this fresh ground USDA Choice burger comes piled high with Ortega green chilies on a home made bun. The Bobcat Bite was featured in George Motz' seminal film Hamburger America. While I have never had the pleasure of dining at the Bobcat Bite I have tried the chilies directly from the Bobcat Bite itself thanks to George Motz who had a secret stash at a screening of his film a few years back. I seem to remember the chilies from the 'Bite to be quite spicy, in comparison the Pann's incarnation had far milder chilies. Never the less I can certainly recommend the Pann's version of the sandwich, it was very tasty.
