About the joint

The first thing that hits you about Alexander's is their signage. The big, glowing neon "BURGERS 'n more" sign hanging in the window makes a bigger impression than the actual name of the restaurant, beside which the words "All day breakfast" portend a few non-burger related visits - who doesn't love breakfast for dinner, after all?

The menu is packed with options, only 8 of them (yes "only" 8 - it's a big menu) are burgers. It's exactly what you'd expect from an old Greek family run place, a greasy mish-mash of every kind of diner food you can think of, brothers and cousins cooking in the back, Mama and daughter up at the cash, and Papa hovering back and forth, running the show. (By the way, that all the employees are related to each other is complete assumption on our part.) The two-tone brown leather booths and the wood paneled walls are just icing on the cake.

The clientele were mostly seniors - confirming suspicions that the decor isn't meant to be ironically retro. Seems like a good place to get grub, but will the burgers uphold the expectations?
