Forget about the pseudo-diners and nostalgia-themed restaurants that popped up during the '90s. This family-friendly place, established in 1928, is the real deal. Sit at the counter and swivel on your stool with an ice cream soda or old-fashioned lemonade. Enjoy burgers and sandwiches in one of the old wooden booths. The vintage jukebox - two plays for a quarter - features old 45s you haven't heard in years.
