I like Fifi’s because it’s got great burgers and delicious fries (almost a bit crunchy on the outside, light on the inside, perfectly salted and not too greasy). It’s a great lunch and dinner stand-by, because a burger and fries is always welcome when you’re hungry, whether it’s noon or night. But, what Fifi’s is also great for is breakfast – especially if you’re an omelette lover, which I am.
In addition to the food, there are two very important people who also make Fifi’s a special destination. First, there’s Fifi, who won me over the day my son told me she covered his lunch one day after he ordered but then looked in his wallet and only had $4.00, about half what he needed. She said not to worry, took the money and still gave him his whole order, with a smile. And, then there’s Manuel, the cook, who is always friendly, brings your food out to you, and never gets grumpy even when the place is hopping.
Finally, I love the music – 50’s and 60’s hits, with plenty of Beatles and Beach Boys thrown in. I always leave whistling a tune, which is a small but great thing.
