Fodor's Review

Shelve your calorie and cholesterol concerns, because Lou Mitchell's heeds no modern health warnings. The diner, a destination close to Union Station since 1923, specializes in high-fat breakfasts and comfort-food lunches. You can start the day with eggs and homemade hash browns by the skillet; later in the day this is the place to take a break for meat loaf and mashed potatoes. Though you'll almost certainly have to have deal with out-the-door waits, staffers dole out doughnut holes and Milk Duds to pacify hunger pangs.
