Patrick’s is one of the places you crawl into after a day at Will Rogers and end up leaving your car at because you’re too hammered to drive home. To say this roadside diner is kitschy would be doing it an injustice. Patrick’s is a full-on time warp to an era we’re not exactly sure ever existed. The menu is massive and includes every type of sandwich and burger, so no matter how big the crew is, everyone’s finding something they want. Patrick’s also does an excellent breakfast if you’re looking for sustenance before the sand.
