Biscuits and Gravy at the Broadway Diner

I went drinking recently with my American undergrad classmates at The Old Heidelberg, and when we had our share of alcohol, they said we absolutely had to go to Broadway Diner. They told me that everyone went there for a post-drinking greasy (super early) breakfast to sop up all the acid after drinking binges. Also, since the cops are very strict here about driving while intoxicated, eating at the diner is also a good way to get your alcohol level down before driving home. (It's also one of the few places in Columbia which are open past 1 a.m.)

The diner looked exactly as diners are depicted on TV, in the movies, and actually, it looked pretty much like American-themed diners back home. The glare of fluorescent lights, the barstools, decor using primary colors... What I was interested in was the kind of food that they served. It was mostly a breakfast place, so I had hash browns and pancakes. My friends told me that I really had to taste Biscuits and Gravy, since that's as American as anything can get. They ordered some and I tasted it, though I didn't get too much because I saw some pieces of meat swimming in it. It tasted nice (gravy usually is) and cholesterol-laden.
