Mexican Brunch at a Retro Diner
Brought to you by the guys who own Big Star Tacos down the street, Dove’s Luncheonette channels the spirit of a retro lunch counter and the soul of Southern-Mexican fusion food. The menu includes Mexican classics like chili rellenos and pozole and Southern classics with a twist like chicken fried chicken smothered in chorizo gravy and a smoked brisket taco. Dove's coffee is a local roast, you can add an egg to anything and they definitely serve cocktails, making it the perfect brunch location. However, there aren’t many stools in this little luncheonette and they don’t take reservations so be prepared to be patient. The hostess will take your number and text you when your table is ready. You can always take a walk around the neighborhood while you wait.
