Goldrush Cafe

Venerable and vaguely divey, the Gold Rush is a Dallas classic and a local institution. Open since 1980, it's a small spot with an appealingly unkempt vibe with lumps in the booths and an old-timey feel, but the breakfasts are reliable and the clientele represents a uniquely diverse slice of humanity. There are things to look at everywhere: a poster touting Elvis Presley's "Jailhouse Rock," a Notre Dame schedule from 1973, and a Yoda puppet hanging from the ceiling. Signature dishes from owner Virgil Sanchez include chicken-fried steak and the John Wayne Breakfast with potato hash, sunny-side egg, cheddar, and salsa on top of a flour tortilla, served with bacon.
