More than 70 years in the doughnut-making business ensures this franchise's doughnuts are top notch. You can never go wrong with their signature Original Glazed. Look for their signature Hot Light the next time you drive by there. When the light is turned on-- during certain hours of the day and night--it means that the Original Glazed yeast-raised doughnuts are right out of the oven. Hot and delicious!

Saigon Palace Asian Cuisine
1938 S. Garnett, 438-9205
Looking for some Asian cuisine but can't settle on one region? Saigon Palace specializes in Chinese, Vietnamese, Laotian and Taiwanese dishes. For starters try the spring rolls accompanied by a delightful peanut sauce. For an entrée, the stir fried clam dinner comes highly recommended, served in oyster sauce with large slices of ginger providing just the right amount of zest. Or warm your bones in the cold weather with the traditional Vietnamese soup, Pho.

Does this place really need an introduction? When it comes to late night dining, you really can't beat a pile of hash browns smothered in cheese or a patty melt with extra onions and a giant side of fries. For a small late night snack or a massive midnight feast, the House has pretty much everything you could ever want in a diner, including an awesome mid 70's color scheme and of course, the Waffle House jukebox featuring classics like "Waffle Do-wop" and "There are Raisins in my Toast". How do you top that? You don't.
