American City Diner

Behind American City Diner’s red neon sign, there's a billboard of cartoon family driving through the countryside, emblazoned with the text “There’s no way like the American Way.” It's an image that, like the restaurant as a whole, looks like it could fit right in Eisenhower-era 1950s America. The train-car-style exterior has a coating of blue paint, and inside, there's a constant soundtrack of Sinatra and Elvis. Picture windows line the front of the diner; wouldn't feel out of the ordinary to see a young couple with two straws dipped in one malted milkshake as they simultaneously dance the Mashed Potato.

Breakfast is served all day, and diners can also enjoy quintessential diner dishes such as burgers and sandwiches.
