Hudson Valley Diners
What is a Diner?
The traditional American diner originated in the 1950s and is usually shaped like a railroad dining car. Diners are casual roadside restaurants often located near a major road or highway. Traditional diners offer seating at the counter bar, at tables, and at comfortable booths often with a jukebox positioned at one side of the table.
Diners are often opened late into the evening and many are open 24/7. The diner menu is huge, offering breakfast all day, lunch, dinner, snack foods, desserts, and a dozen sides. You can order scrambled eggs, toast, and potatoes in the evening and a burger in the morning, or fish dishes, pasta, salads, the list goes on and on. Follow your meal with a milk shake any time of day. Don't forget to ask for a freshly made cup of coffee. A good diner won't mind and will put up a new pot of coffee.
Many diners are great fun, the food is good, the service is friendly, and the prices are affordable. A best of all, on off hours a good diner can be your home away from home where you can relax over a cup of coffee, or sit for hours over a meal.
