Overview

Their names tempt customers with a little magic to go along with a meal—the Miss Albany, the Mayfair, Webbies, Daddypops, the Night Owl, Mel’s. Now their warmth and great food draw us toward a grand dining adventure. With gleaming stainless steel, colorful porcelain, and glowing neon, they serve up crunchy onion rings and steaming hot chili, freshly baked pies and early morning ham and eggs, along with piping hot coffee, to enthusiastic customers day after day, year after year. Indeed, the American roadside diner is a place like no other, with excellent service, reasonable prices, and good conversation.

Accompanying the recipes are profiles of interesting diners, their fascinating owners, and many of the people who have worked in them. More than 100 photos appear throughout.
