Without 24-hour diners, early birds and night owls would never be able to peacefully cohabitate and hunt for naturally occurring chili dogs. Share the space with all kinds of day and night beings with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of American fare at Route 9 Diner in Hadley.
Named Best of the Valley for late-night dining in 2011 by the Valley Advocate, Route 9 Diner serves an extensive menu of made-from-scratch entrees 24 hours a day. Homemade baked meatloaf comes smothered in a mushroom sauce ($10.25), and the stuffed filet of sole florentine prepares for travel to hungry diners by packing a savory suitcase of feta cheese and spinach and checking a bag of collectible forks ($14.95). Experience the sweet side of breakfast with m&m pancakes ($6.45) or peanut-butter-chip waffles ($6.75). Or dare unhinged jawbones with a bevy of 7-ounce steak and specialty burgers piled high with jalapeños, mushrooms, or sautéed onions ($4.25–$7.95). Owners Chris and Archie blend into the staff as they patrol the classic tiled floors and counter service to cook and serve their specialties. Route 9 Diner's menu and pricing—like a superhero's nightclubbing alter ego—is subject to change after 9 p.m.
