Flip It LJ Diner on Park Road is good; you should go

Today I finally got a chance to check out Flip It LJ Diner at 1432 Park Rd NW, and it's good.

It's a pretty small spot, maybe 20 seats, with a good sized menu: breakfast, lunch and dinner with traditional diner fare plus some Latin American items. I went for breakfast/lunch style and go a baleada, a traditional Honduran dish that's kind of like an awesome version of a quesadilla: a tortilla with scrambled eggs, avocado, refried beans, sour cream and parmesan. It was tasty (pictured below).

I also got a side of bacon which was perfectly made, and my buddy got the Early Bird burrito, a big breakfast burrito stuffed with home fries, sausage, cheese and egg, and he liked it. With two coffees, the total was $26, so not too bad.

The menu is big, with traditional diner breakfasts, plus omelets, burgers, wings, sandwiches, paninis, pasta, salads and Mexican food like tacos,  quesadillas and fajitas. We talked with the waiter a little bit, he said one owner is American, the other is from Bolivia and the cooks are central American, so they tried to get a mix of dishes.

And like a good diner, it opens at 7am all week, plus 8am on Saturday and 9am on Sunday, although it's not open too late. It's closed Tuesday.

Yelpers love it too, with a 5 star rating from 44 ratings -- so they're doing quite well. Definitely worth a visit if you want to some traditional diner grub. Here are the hours:

Mon 7:00 am - 3:30 pm
Tue Closed
Wed 7:00 am - 6:30 pm
Thu 7:00 am - 8:30 pm
Fri 7:00 am - 8:30 pm
