Isaac's Rest. in Pymouth Ma. Off Rte. 3 in downtown Plymouth. Just off Rte 3 if your heading toward or leaving Cape Cod Can't beat the food or the view of the harbor.

Fireside Grill just off the rotary (traffic circle) in Middleboro Ma. Junktion of rte 28 , 495 and rte 44. Great place!

Neither of these fit the description of D D and dives but they're 2 of our favorites. :trink39:

I used to eat every day at dinsers in Fitchburg MA where I was born,when I worked in that area..The River St.Diner was great,but I think the owner has passed on many years ago now,not sure if the place still exists..
The "East Side Diner" was another good one,I saw it for sale on CL not long ago,for 100K!..guess I wont be eating there again..

My dad always had breakfast at the Morin Square Diner in downtown Fitchburg,he took us there after church on Sunday often..all 3 of these diners were the classic "boxcars" and had a neat nostalgic charm you cant re-create in a modern resturaunt...

I have not eaten at "Dave's Diner" in Middlkeboro since it first opened--its a nice new "retro" boxcar diner,but the food was
lousy the last time I went there..been years since I ate at Sissons Diner on Rt.28 in South Middleboro,but they used to have good food...

Morning breafast & coffee for me was at the local downtown 'Village Restaurant'.. The entertainment with all of the local folks and the controversies and 'ribbing' made the experience all the more enjoyable.. (kinda like MTF) I've brought up a little food or coffee laughing at them lots of times over the years.. And hey.. the food was pretty good too..:trink40:

Dave's is really good now, been there a bunch of times. Sissons however is out of business as of last year.

I LOVE diners and being from the area, the cars built by the Worcester Diner Company have a special pull. => http://dinerhotline.wordpress.com/2010/06/12/worcester-lunch-cars-nos-811-thru-819/

Although, in my area... if I have to pick a favorite, it would be Carl's Diner in Oxford, Mass. How can you NOT love a place that will hide your meal (and not a small task at that) in BACON! Yes sir, a full plate of eggs and home fires will be hidden in close to a pound of bacon! Mmmmmm Oh, and if you do finish it all, they will give you more if you dare! I like to joke and tell them to give me extra bacon...

Here is a great write up with some photo's of the plates of food that you just have to see to believe.

Oh dear Lord ! please help my waistline that sounds like a place I have to try FFEMT.

And I should be ashamed of myself for overlooking one just like that, Tony's I-75 If you leave there hungry you're not human.

BBQ Smokehouse in Priceville, Alabama, just outside of Decatur. One half mile west of I-65 at exit 332 on SR 67. It's on the left. BBQ, fried okra, fried squash, try the BBQ chicken and white BBQ sauce.

We are heading to Arizona in a week or so and are there any places you would recommend in Tuscon or Yuma? How about Lake Havasu and or Parker? If you are ever in the Spruce Grove Alberta area, Annies has great Chinese food and Jacks has the best burgers.

our local favorite is Richards Pizza and steak sandwiches
http://www.richardspizza.com/

And then you can't beat the local cuisine....Cincinnati style chili!!!
Yeah....we put "chili" over spaghetti noodles, it's a love or hate type thing:fing32:
We have either Skyline, Gold Star, and Empress. Guy Fieri actually came and did story on it.

chino banditos in phoenix az is good. GREAT selection/combination of food there.

del rheas chicken basket SW chicago il, we weren't impressed with it all. breading reminded me of very course corn meal.

cemita's puebla in chicago il Bro has been there, swears by it.

uncle lou's in memphis tn is great food. The quality of fried chicken that all should be held to.

pizza palace knoxville tn, great pizza. it was worth the wait. be forewarned, cash only. no cards.....
