AMERICAN DINERS

An institution
Publié le samedi 21 novembre 2009.


The first diners were real train wagons. When a train wagon was too old, it was often transformed into a cheap restaurant near a train station.

It is usually narrow and elongated and in them you find stainless steel panels, glass blocks, neon signs and formica furniture.

Diners very often stay open 24 hours a day and serve typical American food. They are very popular and people like meeting there.
