THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Diesels Restaurant Review

: A Polish family that used to run a popular deli on the west side of town, the Fordonskis motored east to Decatur this year. Popular for the burgers (including a portobello burger) and sandwiches, the house specializes in po’ boy sandwiches (crab cake, blackened chicken, blackened or lemon pepper salmon). Brunch focuses on skillet scrambles with egg and potato, including a Hangtown scramble (fried oysters, smoked sausage, cheddar cheese) and a Frogmore scramble (fried shrimp, bacon and rémoulade sauce). A Polish take on American food, as one staffer cracked. Yet there are Asian touches in such dishes as an appetizer of Thai-style nam sod and crab cake spring rolls. New Orleans figures in such fare as crawfish and shrimp étouffé over Basmati rice. Dinner entrées show a lot of creativity as well as tradition. Most interesting is the Cajun deep-fried rock Cornish hen, which comes out juicy and flavorful, as one would expect if familiar with this way of cooking poultry. This wine list is a no-man’s land.
