You’re talking about the John Wayne Special at the Gaffey Street Diner which I reviewed here several years ago (and revisited just last week). I will have to ask Barbara about whether they created it next time I am there.
Here in an Ohio restaurant called TeeJay’s they include two biscuits with the eggs, sausage, and homefries and cover it all with sausage gravy. They call it the Barnyard Buster
I guess it’s different strokes for different coasts — this being the middle coast
I’ve always though Eat at Joe’s in Redondo Beach, CA was the originator of the John Wayne Special…eggs, sausage links and home fries covered in a ranchero/huevos ranchero sauce. I recently discovered a diner in San Pedro, a few towns away has the same special.
Has anyone else seen this? Is it some obscure special common in other parts of the country?
The John Wayne Special?
