You know you're at a no-nonsense diner when you can order a hot fudge malt with your Mexican omelet for dinner and no one bats an eye. The St. Clair Broiler is that place: Breakfast is served all day, malts come with the can on the side, and even the salads are unhealthy. While you can no longer take a streetcar to the corner of Snelling and St. Clair, you can still get a deliciously flame-broiled burger with a long list of fixings—everything from guacamole and provolone to bacon and blue cheese is happily heaped on patties. The hot turkey sandwich—served open-face on white bread, of course—is a steaming plate of Thanksgiving whenever you have a hankering for the sweetness of cranberries mixed with a classic, salty gravy. And on weekends after 4 p.m. the Broiler offers a TV dinner special (hold the TV) that features your choice of meat plus veggies, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, a biscuit, and dessert for just $11.95. If the waitress calls you "sweetheart" when she hands over your steaming plate, you can consider your diner experience complete.
