A diner's oversized booths and oversized pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new novelty-sized props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of comforting American fare and drinks at Joe's Diner, a family-owned eatery with locations on Tamiami Trail North and Airport Road South.
Checkered floors, neon signs, and 1950s-style memorabilia cocoon customers in nostalgia as they nosh on heaping breakfast, lunch, and dinner plates. Classic morning favorites are served until 3 p.m. daily to accommodate late risers and fatigued grandfather clocks, including sweet belly fillers like Belgian waffles topped with hot cinnamon apples, as well as savory veggie-, meat-, and cheese-packed skillets, omelets, and frittatas. Lunch lovers and dinner devotees can prove their loyalty by spooning soups or holding hands with sandwiches, burgers, and dogs. The friendly staff members at both locations are happy to accommodate dietary restrictions.

When morning falls on the town of Naples, Joe's Diner's chefs begin whipping up the homestyle skillets, blintzes, and frittatas that earned the diner a place among the Naples Daily News' top breakfast spots. They shower fluffy biscuits in sausage gravy, potatoes, cheese, bacon, and egg to craft the Joe's Challenge—their signature breakfast dish. The chefs continue to serve breakfast throughout the day, adding custom burgers, specialty sandwiches, and juicy steaks to the mix when lunchtime rolls around. Servers bear plates out to the bright '50s-style dining room, where guests sip milk shakes at checkered tabletops and in big red booths.
