When I was a 17 year old kid I helped out a family friend over the summer at his diner/cafe type of a place (picture Mel's Diner from the old 1970's-1980's sitcom Alice
It was nice having that huge grill with the grease trap in front and the professional fryers next to it. When I'm messing around with 3 or 4 pans on our stove cooking breakfast -- bacon in one, eggs in another, hash browns in another, French toast in another, I sometimes miss that grill where you could cook all of that at once on the grill. I want a grill in our kitchen. :)
Anyway he would step out for a smoke after finishing up the tickets, and then I'd have to take over if any other tickets came in while he was still out there. So I'd get to toss some hash browns on the grill, crack some eggs on the grill, put some bread in the industrial size toasters. Sometimes I'd get to finish a ticket or 2 before he came back in.
But I liked how it was set up -- the bags of bread on a shelf about the industrial toasters. A basket of fresh eggs near by, etc..
He sort of acted like Mel, too. Cool guy -- old school type of fella. He made a hell of a western omelet and a mean cheeseburger.
