Somewhere between fine dining and fast food exists a shrinking category of restaurants that many of us visit on a regular basis. These sorts of places — cafés, diners, and “family restaurants” — offer simple sit-down meals that are freshly prepared and moderately priced. Those moderate prices are essential. You might be able to afford a fine-dining splurge on special occasions, but at your bread-and-butter spot, you don’t want to empty your wallet to fill your stomach. Of course, the food has to be decent.

Sunrise Family Restaurant is that kind of place. It serves satisfying, if not extraordinary, breakfasts and lunches at prices that somehow seem out of place in today’s world. Sure, the two pork chops you get for $10.50 may not be as thick as the ones you’ll pay twice or three times as much for in that upscale restaurant. But they’re nicely finished, just slightly greasy, and equally filling. And that fine-dining place probably doesn’t offer tuna salad, menudo, chicken-fried steak, or breakfast all day long.
