Welcome Diner isn’t exactly downtown, it’s slightly east in the Garfield neighborhood. But because it’s open late (until 2am every night) and serves exactly the type of food you want after a long night at the downtown bars, you’ll want it on your list. The Southern menu here includes things like the Big Jim (a fried chicken biscuit sandwich with sausage gravy), Andouille corn dogs, and mac and cheese.
