Breakfast in Kenosha

We took the guys to Franks Diner in Kenosha WI for breakfast this morning. 74.2 miles from our home but worth it.

Franks is an old train car that was turned into a diner.
Todd and I have been to Franks once before and liked it so much we wanted to take the guys. Franks Diner has been featured on the Food Networks show Diner, Drive-ins and Dives.
Todd, Jordan, and I each ordered the 1/2 garbage with one meat; Ethan ordered the 3 stack chocolate chip pancakes. Our waiter bet Ethan a dollar that he couldn't finish the 3stack. Sure enough the waiter was correct; Ethan did eat a little over 1/2 of it though. Now he has leftovers for breakfast tomorrow. He is holding his leftover in picture below.

After we were done at Franks we drove the 1/2 mile to Lake Michigan.

Kind of a foggy day today.
