"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Respect Due

I don’t thank you guys enough, the regulars who come by to add their two cents. But yesterday’s food post about greasy spoons made me proud that I run this blog. I love it when a topic engages you guys. Sometimes, it’s about the Yankees and baseball, or life in the city, or a movie, or food.  

I learned new things reading through the comments yesterday and relished the banter. Made me stop and appreciate the moment.

Thanks for helping make this site what it is.

well, thank YOU, for the *best* home & family on the internet a guy could hope for!

i wanted to post more on the diner thread, but i got home from work too late. everybody's got a slightly different spin on it. i grew up in queens and long island and diners were always a regular thing. but i wasn't real familiar with the term 'greasy spoon'. i mean, i heard it, but it wasn't all that prevalent in my world and i never really knew what it meant.

i have traveled throughout the country, pretty extensively, touring with bands, over the last 15 years. i would say, yes, definitively, that there surely are diners all over the place and definitely in the south. it's not all waffle house, huddle house, denny's and cracker barrel (which is not a diner, but was mentioned in the thread).

atlanta, is a big city, and is filled with mostly northern transplants, like me. there are 'greasy spoons', greek diners and other 'truckstop' diners. i haven't frequented them much in the last few years, but i always dig me a good diner!
