In other words, I wouldn't drive across town for lunch — not the way I would for a plate of biscuits, four inches tall before being sliced and drenched in sausage gravy, or pancakes, especially the Bisquick-like (read: not too sweet) banana walnut, which can be ordered as part of the mix-and-match Three Pancakes plate. More savory but just as delicious are the Toad-in-a-Hole pancakes, with an egg in the center and studded with bacon. Omelets may not be the fluffiest around, but it's hard to resist the spicy sausage, with cheddar and scratch-made green chile thickened as much with flour as with shreds of pork. (Devin takes an immersion blender to the pot.) Good enough to spoon like soup, which you can do if you order it on the side, the green chile also tops a breakfast burrito stuffed with three eggs, potatoes and cheddar. Yet as tasty as the food is at the new DJ's, I can't help but wonder something that crosses the minds of many parents at one time or another: How can you be part of the family yet be so different?

HOOeffinRAY! I no longer live on Cap HIll, but remember in the 1980s when that space was a bar  catering to Black clientele and the building to the east was Garbo's, a piano bar catering to Gay clientele. When bar in DJs space closed, it sat vacant. I think it was used for storage -- I'd be interested to know the actual history of the building.

Will be stopping in real soon! Good luck to DJs.
