There are many activities that should not be performed on an empty stomach, including swimming, surgery, and swimming 30 minutes after having your appendix removed. Acquire activity fuel with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of classic diner fare at Skooter's. Today’s deal is only valid at the Skooter’s Windsor Locks location.

Fueling families with old-fashioned eats, Skooter’s brings the feel-good atmosphere of a classic ’50s diner to the modern world. Watch via the open kitchen as the practiced chefs juggle breakfast, lunch, and dinner orders with ease, recalling feelings of a simpler time, when rock 'n' roll was young and Cher was just embarking on her first farewell tour. Satisfy appetites of any size with a fresh-ground beef burger ($2.40 regular; $4.05 jumbo) or hot dog ($2.40), served on pillowy buns piled high with Skooter’s famous fried onions. The menu also includes a selection of fried seafood, sumptuously showcased in the seafood combo, which offers up a hearty portion of breaded-to-order fish, whole-belly clams, scallops, and chips ($13.55). Saddle up to Skooter’s counter for dessert and try a slice of fruit or cream pie ($2.30), which can be enjoyed with ice cream ($1.75) or thrown comically in the face of a dining companion. Breakfast is also available until 11:30 a.m. Monday–Friday and until 12:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, giving customers ample opportunity to start their days with a ham, egg, and cheese sandwich ($3.65) or a heaping pile of pancakes ($4.00).

Skooter’s

Drive-in movies. Car hops. Rock 'n' roll. Though human nature compels us to view the past in varying shades of gold, the 1950s almost transcends nostalgia. For those who were there, the smallest of triggers can set off waves of fond memories: a ringing bell leads the mind’s eye back to the polished counter of a soda fountain, and an oldies radio station evokes weekends spent passing quarters through the jukebox slot.

On September 11, 2001, in the midst of tragedy and after 19 years as a flight attendant, Brenda Stranberg decided that she was tired of playing back memories of America’s greatest decade in her head. Looking around her at a cultural landscape that her childhood self would hardly recognize, she teamed up with old friend Naif Makol Jr. and founded Skooter’s, an old-fashioned diner and coffee shop inspired by the simple pleasures of life more than half a century ago. Though somewhat of an anachronism, the diner’s open kitchen has proven wildly popular among the various generations that frequent the sit-down counter to sample thick milk shakes, loaded hot dogs, and burgers topped with fried onions. Between bites, guests can toss coins into the antique jukebox or admonish the diner’s soda jerks for callously dousing their friends with fountain drinks.
