Berzet’s is almost like home to its fans, who count on homey soul food and warm, motherly TLC. Mac and cheese, seasoned-to-the-bone baked chicken, and meaty, tender short ribs are dependable favorites, says beke, an erstwhile regular. She dropped in recently with her niece and was greeted with a hearty “Haven’t seen you girls in a LONG time!” from the owner and cook. Breakfast bargain–the “2-2-2,” which is two eggs, two pancakes, and two pieces of sausage and bacon, all for $2.22.
