Bob Thiele, the proprietor of B.O.B.S. Diner, will tell you he’s a scratch golfer and start scraping his body parts. But after he washes his hands, he’ll incapacitate you in ways other than laughter. A recent breakfast special was the Southern Benedict, a breaded boneless pork loin on a homemade biscuit, topped with eggs and smothered in bacon jalapeno gravy. Other standard implements of slow cardiovascular destruction include I Can’t Decide (two pancakes, two eggs, two strips of bacon and two sausage patties) or the Kitchen Sink (potatoes, ham, bacon, sausage, onion, peppers and two fried eggs, topped with cheese and killer pork green chili made by Jorge in the back). A friend has traveled from another time zone to relive the French toast with its crunchy crust of Frosted Flakes cereal. The lunch and dinner menu features build-your-own burgers, sandwiches and salads. The sleeper hit is the St. Louis mac and cheese, made with smooth and creamy provolone. To get a rise out of Bob, try paying with a credit card.
