This restaurant means business: it offers all the American cuisine classics—from patty melts to root beer floats—for consumption at their 50s-style counter or in booths that scream retro diner. There's also the quintessential soup, salad, and sandwich trio of options on the menu, with daily specials to spruce things up. The waiters are a bit glum and constantly in a rush, but on the plus side customers never have to wait for a table. While The Brite Spot calls itself a "family restaurant," groups of angsty rock-and-rollers are more likely to be spotted here than rosy-cheeked families. Either way, it's a great, casual place to grab a hassle-free burger and fries at 3 in the morning. Call ahead for hours.
