Classic diner fare always tastes better when accompanied by rebellious tunes from Buddy Holly or a lesson in proper etiquette from Harry Truman. Chow down amid old-timey touches with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare at Magnolia Diner's two locations.
Homey aromas from medleys of fresh, local ingredients waft across Magnolia Diner's Hollywood-infused, '50s-style eatery while scratch-made American noshes sock-hop across an all-day menu. The Big Kahuna burger's third-pound patty surfs waves of tangy sauce while clinging to pineapple life-preservers, grilled-onion buoys, and its inflatable water-wings ($7.99). Plunge breakfast forks through fluffy eggs piled up next to a country-fried steak ($7.99), or fill stomachs with bites of the Hamwich, sliced ham and scrambled eggs on sourdough ($6.79), even after the sundial strikes noon. Two house-battered catfish fillets ($10.49) frolic through stomach caverns, delighting in an after-dinner deluge of milkshake, handspun from Bluebell ice cream and the dreams of children, or a behemoth banana split ($6.99, $4.79 for mini).
