Tucked away in the hills of PA, this is my friends’ and my go-to diner. It’s on the ground floor of the owners’ home, it’s very cabin-like and Pennsylvanian inside, and their bacon is the greatest you will ever have in your life. Period. You’re going to love your trip there.
If you find yourself in the Binghamton area, you should definitely check out Rolando's Diner on Court Street. Their breakfast is consistently delicious, fast, and amazingly cheap. They haven't changed the prices since the 70's, so a typical breakfast special of sausage, eggs, toast and coffee will run you around five to six bucks.
Perfect perfect perfect. Thanks!
Exeter Family Restaurant in Exeter, PA! I feel like every town in Pennsylvania has a diner but I've never found one I've liked more than this one, great service, friendly faces, and good food. This diner has won me over and I highly recommend it!
Perfect! Many thanks!
I know you've already done a lot of New Jersey, but I figured I would share anyway. Until we moved last November my mom and I would eat at LEAST once a week in our local diner Harbor Diner in Egg Harbor City, NJ. The people are so friendly and it's always given me a huge sense of community for example my friend went with the local high school boys soccer team after every game. It's a place that just means a lot to me and I get very nostalgic thinking about it.
That’s exactly the kind of diners we need. Thank you so much for sharing.
Has anyone suggested Golden Nugget chain on North side of Chicago? On the Southside of Chicago the must go chain is Huck Finns. Also suburb of Forest Park has a great place called Louies I live in its building. I'd join you if you stop there!
Officially a "family restaurant" but has that diner food feel -- Maple Lawn Dairy in Elmira, NY (just down 87 ~1.5 hours west of Binghamton). They make their own ice cream!
silk city in philadelphia is a really cool diner + bar! my favorite is this egg sandwich on a croissant with avocado, delicious!
Thanks! That sounds so good.
Stella’s Diner in Syracuse, NY. It’s just north of Binghamton, straight up I-81 and right off the highway. Be prepared for long waits on weekend mornings through early afternoons. http://www.stellasdinersyracuse.com
Southwest Diner in St Louis -- diner food meets Tex Mex!
St. Louis seems to be another hoppin’ spot—thanks!
For the record, we love diners that are a little “unique” like this (like Selena’s, the pizza diner we featured a few months ago!).
Tony's I-75 diner in Birch Run, MI. If you're prepped to have a heart attack induced by bacon, that is.
We are always prepared for bacon-induced cardiac distress.
