It’s the old Nite Owl on E. Fifth Street in the Oregon district- but, it’s so not. A total gut and rebuild- has the space at 430 E. 5th St feeling light and airy. Walls washed with a deep orange, old style lights mixed with the mandatory cool “exposed ductwork” give the place a whole new vibe.
The kitchen is open from 11am to 9pm- and the most expensive things on the menu is the cheesesteak at $7.99 with their home made chips or slaw. Waffle fries are a buck upcharge- but- take my advice and stick with their chips.
I had the Italian Burger- and Mike went with the “Ragin’ Cajun”- both of us thought the burgers were of healthy proportion (half pounders).
With Pacchia back open for lunch- and with the OE, Thai 9, Cafe Boulevard, the Fifth Street Deli, Blind Bobs, the Dublin Pub, China Buffet, Franco’s and Coco’s all within a few blocks- all serving lunch- Fifth Street can keep you going 5 days a week with something different.
Check out their website at www.blindbobs.com it’s not complete yet- and look for live music at night. Today is the offical grand opening (they did a soft opening last week). The renovation was done by the South Park based Kent Development Group– and it’s a huge improvement.
