Zip's Dining Car (Zip's Diner) has been around for a long time and is a local favorite. This was my first visit. The diner was so quaint and cozy that I thought I stepped back into the fifties. The food was good though the portions...More

If you’re in the mood for a chai tea and an arugula salad, this is not the place for you. If you’re in the market for classic American diner fare in an authentic 50’s era dining car frequented by the locals, then come on in...More
