Restaurant Details

Surrounded by the usual big-box suspects (Home Depot, Staples), White Palace is a throwback: a friendly neighborhood eatery steadfast in its blue-collar resolve. Open 24 hours, the kitchen pumps out burgers, fries, omelets, and the like to a steady stream of city workers, politicians, bankers, and street hustlers. The quality is of the standard diner variety. On a recent visit, for instance, not even copious amounts of gravy could make the country-fried steak anything other than bland. The "Gypsy," a skillet of scrambled eggs, ham, onions, and cheese, was fine but nothing that couldn't be done better at home. Previous visits yielded better results--burgers are typically good and greasy, omelets light and airy. Ambience, however, is the sine qua non of the White Palace; were it not for the classic Formica-and-chrome decor and mural of Chicago notables, you might just as well head over to Manny's.
