The Columbine claims to have been "nationally known for fine steaks since 1961." It's a survivor, the kind of place they don't make anymore and haven't made for decades: a steak diner, with a faded dining room in front and a dim lounge in the back. You tell the two cooks working the grill what you want from the menu hung right above them — T-bone, New York or porterhouse, burger — then pay at the register. Before you know it, you'll be digging into a great ten-dollar steak. Have a seat in the lounge for the kind of no-nonsense table service that will simultaneously make you feel like a bit of nuisance and part of the family.
