Best Diners In 50 States

Here's a list that was gathered from 4 Square ratings in each state. There are a few Roadfood recommended regulars on this one, too. Saw a few, even with the limited blurbs on them, that I'd like to try.

    Diners? There were a couple. But when did, say, Slyman's, a delicatessen in Cleveland, become a diner?

    MH - Not much consistency here. Several drive-ins and a chain restaurant also show up.

    I'm not sure how Rudy's Drive-in in La Crosse makes the list when it opens at 10am and doesn't serve any breakfast items.  To qualify as a diner shouldn't a restaurant be open during traditional breakfast hours?
     
    Just because a certain TV show features "Diners" and "Drive-Ins" in the name does not automatically make a drive-in a diner...

    Obviously they're playing loose with the term "diner" Many of these aren't true diners.

    Before looking:
     
    • The "Best" diner in Texas will be some joint in Austin.
    • The "Best" diner in New York will be some non-diner in the City (& not Long Island, The Diner Capital!).
    • The "Best" diner in Virginia will not be Metro 29, WHICH, in fact, IS THE BEST DINER IN VA!
     
    Edit:  right, right, and right.

    Right. The "one" in Massachusetts is part of a 2 restaurant chain. Don't get me wrong,,,,,,it looks good, but it is not a "diner". Diners were made here in Worcester, and a lot of them survive. They should have picked one of them.
