Chambana: The Classic Merry Ann's by Alice Zhao

Merry Ann's Diner, Champaign, UIUC

Ahhh, the quintessential munchies cure after a night of heavy drinking. How fitting it is that head over here after we watch the Hangover (great movie by the way!!) and a heavy night of drinking. We originally decided on The Original Pancake House, but seeing how the line wrapped around the corner, we our next choice was Merry Ann's.

To tell you the truth, this is the first time I have been here with the sun out. Usually our Merry Ann experience is preceded by drinking and more drinking. I mean where else can you find a plate comprised of a biscuit foundation with hash browns, sausage patty with cheese and 2 eggs with a mound of gravy enough for a full-on thanksgiving? They have your typical selection of diner food and breakfast is served all day. I think I had my day's worth of calories in that breakfast alone. It sure made the drive back to Chicago difficult with our stomach filled with diner goodness.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the glory that is the diner stack...
