Diners and cool cars go together like burgers and fries. And we've got all of the above. Join us each Friday from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm, weather permitting, with the South East Classics car club. Enjoy good food and see all kinds of cars and trucks. Take photos, if you'd like. It's fun for the whole family. And what's more American than that? See ya soon!
Here at the diner, we have pancakes almost any way you'd like them: with syrup, honey, fruit, butter, and so much more. A side of bacon or sausage with that? Our great Big Menu has an entire section of pancakes.
We regret to inform you, however, that some pancakes are very much for children only. Just ask your waiter or waitress. See the charming example above? But don't worry. If you're an adult, and if you ask in a really nice way, we might be able to rustle up a plate like this, just for you. ;)
You've been with us for a while, so you know how much we love a good diner story. The story of diners is the story of America.
Over at the Curbed site, Patrick Sisson takes readers way back to the roots of diner construction in a busy and burgeoning nation. As with many great things, there was no single narrative to this story. A constellation of individuals, companies, and events brought about the modern-era diner as we know it.
Yes, our diner Big Menu includes traditional Polish delicacies. It's in the family, we can say. Greek, Italian, and Latin / Hispanic dishes, too. No passport required. Like us on Facebook and you'll see a lot more where this came from.
It looks like something published in one of those epicurean magazines, doesn't it. But -- surprise, surprise -- it's one of our dinner specials. Filet Mignon. And just look at that asparagus.
Other specials include all sorts of home-cooked dishes, from Lamb Shank to fresh Mahi Mahi. Stop by on your way home, or give us a call. Eat in or take out. Choose your favorite from our regular menu or ask us what's on special tonight. We look forward to hearing from you!
Isn't this charming? If you look closely at the bottom, it says, "MADE IN U.S.A." We love these sort of vintage things.
Diners are vintage, and we even have old-fashioned diner stool seating. Traditional booth seating, too. Visit us by yourself or with the whole family. We look forward to serving you soon.
As you probably already know, they're called pierogi. And, yes, that word is plural. Like dumplings. So there's no need for fictional spellings such as pierogies (although, if you say pierogies to your waitress, we'll forgive you; they're tasty, no matter what you call 'em!).
Now about these dumplings from Poland. You can have your pierogi boiled or fried. Some are filled with meat, others are filled with potato and cheese, and still others are filled with sauerkraut and mushroom. Here at Time to Eat Diner, our pierogi are furthermore topped with luscious strands of caramelized onion. So delicious. In fact, many a customer has told us, "Just like at grandma's house!"
And if you go to grandma's house, or if you just like being a well-informed fan of good food, you can make use of a very popular Polish language word: Smacznego. It means enjoy your meal. Or bon appetit.
It's pronounced like this: smach-NAY-goh
Got it? Good. Now you're ready to look across the table and tell your loved ones that it's time to dig in. Polish style. ;)
If you like diners like we like diners, you'll love this beautiful feature by the writers and camera people at the BBC. They traveled to New Jersey to capture the people and stories behind the authentic American diner. The resulting video and slide show is excellent.
A diner is not just another restaurant, right? We don't think so! And we hope to see you soon -- to serve you a little slice of New Jersey and New York right here in Tequesta.
It looks so good, you just gotta take a picture before you dig in. Go ahead: get out your phone. We don't mind. We take photos of our food creations, too!
Here you've got classical mussels in a marinara sauce with all the chunk tomato and fresh garlic you remember. It's a special occasion each time you order it. And the contrast of that vivid red with the white and black. Just fabulous.
Enjoy this traditional meal and your other half, or your family, or your friends, can order something entirely different. That's the diner way. That's why we have The Big Menu -- there's something for everyone. :)
Look, this is how it is: If you're in New York or New Jersey, you've got countless places where folks sit at the counter. But here in Tequesta? Not so much. So -- bada bing! -- here we are: counter space and counter stools aplenty.
The photo you see above is our counter. And we can take your order right there, just like at diners up north. See more photos at our Instagram account.
The counter is a favorite of couples, friends, and people who happen to be dining alone. Of course, if you'd like a more traditional table, we've got those. And we've also got your classical diner booth -- complete with vinyl upholstery. There's even a separate large room for your group or family event. Whichever you prefer, we look forward to seeing you, soon.
Here are some of our favorite foods and stories. We look forward to serving you!
