Johnny's Diner had a long run in Aurora, but when a recent fire department inspection determined that the place needed a new fire suppression hood over the grill -- a $3,000 repair -- that was enough to convince the owner to decide to get out of the diner business altogether, and close Johnny's.
This sucks. Johnny's was AWESOME. Now where am I going to go for my greasy breakfast hangover cure??
Good question. As a public service and in honor of Johnny's, we'll publish a list of great greasy breakfast hangover cures...and we could use your help. What place do you recommend? (Note: We're talking breakfast, so Chubby's is out.)
