Abner’s sits in the seediest part of East Third in Dayton. Off the beaten path but shouldn’t be ignored.
Sitting on the south side of East Third Abner’s is a local’s greasy spoon. A few highlights. Breakfast all day. Great prices. Friendly wait staff, one girl working the small counter and the 8 booths. Any time I see locals just drinking coffee and reading the paper, or in this case playing cards, I know I have found a gem.
I had the bacon cheeseburger, fries and cottage cheese. This burger was a two napkin as the juice ran down my sleeve. Not greasy and not a frozen stamped patty. The salad on top was lacking in December. Too many crisp fries to finish and cottage cheese was cold. I had the iced tea, this is a Pepsi place. Lunch with tip was well south of $10.00.
The couple next to me had breakfast and it made me wish I had ordered the biscuits and gravy. I will be back for a full menu to review.
So for some East Dayton culture, a great burger, or breakfast and lottery if you need, Abner’s is your place!
