A quick shot today of the well-known Silver Diner in Clarendon. The website talks about how the founders came up with the idea for the Diner:
We went on the road and spent a year visiting over 500 diner style restaurants in big and small towns across America seeking to understand the timeless appeal of this American icon. What has made diners so successful for over 100 years? Of course, diners are known for their unique roadside architecture and generous helpings of home-style food, but the heart of what brings customers back to the diner again and again is the people.
