In an era of increased health consciousness, it can be difficult to justify certain grease-laden indulgences. Luckily, there’s always room for exceptions, such as Onion Roll's trans-fat-friendly menu.
Comfort food abounds at this 70s-era throwback, where wood paneling and vintage Coca-Cola signs merge with a lunch counter and formica-topped tables. Delicious, artery-clogging breakfast fare includes omelets, potato pancakes, and blintzes; lunch selections consist of burgers and sandwiches heavy on the meat. The reuben, piled high with corned beef, sauerkraut and swiss cheese, stands out among the options.
Onion Roll's affordable prices offer yet another incentive to blow your diet, with most items costing $4-$7. On top of that, breakfast is served throughout the day, and the adjacent deli allows you to depart with a fresh loaf of rye bread, lox, smoked herring and enough cold cuts to make sammies for lunch all week. You may feel guilty for a few days after, but at least you'll have satisfied your fat cells for the time being.
Average cost: <$10
