Mike's City Diner is as close to a true diner feel as one can get in the city of Boston. It's a no-frills, greasy dive on the South End's portion of Washington Street. If one were to describe it in two words; cash only . In true diner fashion the menu is enormous with an array of every type of egg, pancake, french toast, and waffle concoction you can imagine. Also in true diner fashion the food comes in outrageous portions and is of a certain quality that only diners can get away with. Let's just say, we don't want to know where or when the ingredients came from :P The food itself is of relatively average taste, nothing too special to report here. The prices are great, especially for how much food you get.
