American Pie Diner, Kenner, LA Report #188

**********  PERMANENTLY CLOSED  **********

 

 

I’ve passed by this place dozens of times and never thought about stopping in.  Soon I have to pick up someone from the airport with a late flight, and was trying to find restaurants open late in the area.  This place is open 24/7, so I looked at the menu.  When I saw they served Patton’s Hot Sausage, I knew it was my kind of place!  I decided to hit it for breakfast.

When we ordered our breakfast the waitress told us they were out of “Country Potatoes”, whatever those are.  No big deal.  We both wanted grits anyway.  Later, I heard another waitress telling someone they were out of steak, white beans, chicken salad and something else I’m forgetting.  The customer asked why they were out of so many things?  The waitress explained their truck comes on Monday mornings, so it’s not uncommon for them to be out of a lot of stuff on Sundays.  Keep that in mind if you plan on dining here.

We decided on:

 

The food:

 

Everything was pretty good!  The grits could have been a little thicker, but we were still able to eat them with a fork.

Even though the Dragon Omelet had hot sausage, pepper jack cheese and jalapenos in it, it wasn’t overly spicy.  And the Banana-Nut Fritter pancakes didn’t only have pecans ON them, but IN them!  Really delicious.  The pancakes themselves would have been good just plain.

Nice place for breakfast.  I’m looking forward to trying the rest of their menu.  I recommend the place.

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT:

 

Made it back to try something besides the breakfast menu.  The menu said the meatloaf sandwich was served on Texas Toast.  When I think of Texas Toast, I think of that really thick, buttery toast.  This was just regular toast.  The meatloaf however was great, and the brown gravy was delicious!  I ordered it with cheese fries, which I didn’t care for too much.  Instead of a cheese sauce they just put a grated cheddar cheese over them and melted it.  Only bad thing about that is once it cooled slightly, there was no more grabbing a fry and pulling it out.  It was like they were sealed under a plastic mat.  Give me the cheap, possibly artificial, cheese sauce, like you get on nachos in the Superdome during a Saints game!

The white beans and smoked sausage were pretty good.  Nothing to brag about but it’s hard to find somewhere that serves white beans on a regular basis.

We got a short stack of pancakes for “dessert”.  You get two, and they’re huge.  They almost cover the whole plate.  The pancakes here are excellent.  Some of the best I’ve had.

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT:

No idea why, but they closed their doors.  I’m sad.  I was enjoying this place.
