Jonathan Kite, who plays a short-order cook Oleg in 2 Broke Girls, says the show will serve up a fresh slice of all-American comedy when it returns to CBS Monday.
"It's just so real," he says of the show, which also stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs. "We're in New York, dealing with the economy. It has people who are struggling, small businesses – that's what America's been founded on."
The actor, 33, spoke with PEOPLE about L.A.'s diner scene, his favorite guest stars and where he wants to be in Hollywood.
On diners: "I think it's so funny when diners have carpet," Kite says. "You think to yourself [food] is going to spill. And it just looks like a giant Jackson Pollack painting. It just looks smelly."
