Diners became popular in the 1950s, a time when people ate breakfast all day to stockpile enough energy to do the twist, should the dance ever be invented. Nosh on nostalgia with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of home-style fare for breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Paul's Diner in Muskogee.
Paul's Diner unleashes a wide array of hearty, old-fashioned meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Patrons can partake in an all-day breakfast menu, which boasts egg, sausage, bacon, and ham sandwiches kept as warm as a good guess between giant biscuits or thick toast ($3.50). During lunchtime hours, the kitchen issues forth the Indian taco ($8), a mélange of taco meat, pinto beans, and picante sauce drizzled over an Indian-fry-bread canvas. The diner's culinary wunderkinds press fresh burger patties by hand into four different sizes, before testing their structural integrity with heaving helpings of bacon and cheese ($5.75 for a half-pound) or chili with cheese ($5.75 for a half-pound). Paul's Diner offers a separate smoking room for its patrons, ensuring that nonsmokers can enjoy a plate of meatloaf ($8.50) without the Marlboro Man begging for scraps beneath their tables.
