Decent dogs, Italian beef, and the like, served fast and cheap.

Our Review

Byron's doesn't have indoor seating, though there are some sidewalk tables. But it's not the kind of place you'd want to stick around in anyway, unless you're partial to grease-stained walls, loutish service, and the mesmerizing glow of neon-green pickle relish. You head to Byron's to get your grub and go, the way God intended. The offerings are completely standard -- brats, dogs, burgers, gyros, chicken sandwiches, and so forth -- but the quality changes according to the time of day and who's behind the counter. The burgers and hot dogs, for instance, are usually reliable -- not anything close to the best you've ever had, but they grill them in front of you and slap the condiments on with style, which counts for a lot. On the other hand, I recently got a bratwurst that was skinny, blackened, and dry. I still ate it, though--it was nourishing, and I had shit to do. Sometimes, Byron's seems to argue, food is just food, a notion I heartily agree with. It's also dirt cheap and usually quick, two virtues which should never be underestimated.
