When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare at Doo Wop Diner on Amelia Island.
Doo Wop Diner sates hungry hoards with a menu brimming with classic favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a kitschy 1950s-style eatery. Greet the sun with a soul-bolstering philly cheesesteak omelet ($8.99) or a toasty belgian waffle ($7.99), or calm midday stomach moans with a Bandstandwich, such as the Reuben or meat-loaf sandwich ($8.99 each). A Hot Rod burger, which boasts two types of cheese ($9.99), fuels protoplasmic engines more effectively than a potentially dangerous gasoline transfusion. For evening nosh-fests, patrons can explore a bevy of hearty entrees, including pastas, loaded salads, and meaty helpings. Reenact the first Happy Days Thanksgiving without shattering your elbow bone on an unplugged jukebox with a plate of roast turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce ($9.99), or tongue dive into a basket of fish ’n’ chips ($7.99).
The cozy Doo Wop Diner transports guests back to a simpler time when men wore hats and women hunted wooly mammoths, with vintage décor, a luminescent jukebox, and 45 rpm records mounted on the walls.
