A diner's oversize booths and oversize pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new novelty-size props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American cuisine at Two Dads' Diner in Lakewood.
Two Dads' Diner relies on fresh, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible to put a healthy spin on homestyle comfort fare. Classic diner eats and updated dishes fill the menu from beer-battered onions rings with a homemade dipping sauce ($3.25) to corned beef, sauerkraut, and thousand island–stuffed irish eggrolls ($4.75). Fuel up for the day with savory biscuits and sausage gravy ($4.25) or vanilla cinnamon-battered french toast ($3.75), which offers a sweet early-morning surprise, like finding a basket of kittens nestled in your bed. A half-pound burger can be slathered with one of six melted cheeses and extra toppings such as mushroom or chili ($5.95+), and the tender chicken paprikash punches up palates with a chive spaetzle ($8.95). Vegetarian dishes such as a portabella sandwich ($7.25) cater to those who prefer their meat meat-less, and homemade desserts and frosty milkshakes ($1.95) positively reinforce a body’s craving for sweets. Patrons can savor each mouthful within Two Dads' Diner's cozy interior peppered with fabric-covered booths, muted green walls, and dressed-down water glasses.
