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 $8, you get $16 worth of American eats and drinks at Schmucker's Restaurant.
Schmucker's has cooked up traditional American comfort food in a casual setting ever since Grandpa Schmucker opened the doors more than 60 years ago. Served all day long, age-old breakfast and dinner classics, such as the steak and eggs ($6.99) and the hot meatloaf platter ($5.99), allow for tummy time travel, and sandwiches such as the grilled ham and cheese ($3.59) muffle midday munchies anytime by stuffing human breadbaskets.
After savory cravings have been sated, an army of pies more than 20 strong, including key lime, strawberry rhubarb, and OH-IO Buckeye ($2.29 per slice), desiccates throats overflooded from bottomless cups of coffee.
The interior, outfitted with a wooden telephone booth, original chrome stools, and square glass bricks adorning the walls, exposes the diner's deep historic roots. Open six days a week from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., Schmucker's extends its culinary sanctuary to early birds, night owls, and voracious afternoon pterodactyls.
