The diner is a kick back to what a diner should look like - booths, neon light signs, down home cookin, fast talking servers and affordable prices. Every dish includes soup or salad and choice of sides. The portions are large enough to share.
The chicken croquette were featured on the show and surprising very good and under $10, including soup or salad and choice of a side dish. Two crispy mountain peaks (or if you are 10 years old they look like boobies) served with mashed potatoes and gravy. There were lots of shredded chicken and chicken essence through and through.
LL told me there is usually a line on weekends which deterred her from visiting the diner sooner. Fun conversations with my girlfriends after a long cold day with on and off down pour of rain made for a satisfied comforting night.
Wait, our night of eating wasn't really over because we went back home and pigged out to $30 worth of pastries from Isgro's and polished a bottle of Sweet Catawba Wine from Finger Lakes Country. It was definitely a very Mid-Atlantic evening.
