I have a semi-local Diner named Thelma's. They have really good food including an AYCE seafood menu. Unfortunately they are struggling financially, I usually call and make sure they have oysters and are still open.
They have really good "homemade soups" I've had chicken an noodles, chicken an dumplins and tonight they had a beef vegetable that was great.
I wish they were closer, I'd eat there more often.
