When Jess and I bought our cabin last fall, the only place to eat in our little town was the "not so" fast food joint, Polar King. Don't get me wrong - they have the most amazing shakes, and the really, really good fries that leave fry residue all over the brown paper bag the food is served in - YUM! And as if that wasn't enough, they also have a big screen T.V. that is always predictably set on T.N.T. (with about 4 middle aged ranchers watching anything from Dukes of Hazzard to Good Fellas).
While the Polar King is all too appropriate once in a while, I have been craving something new...something with a little more spice...and maybe a little more roughage...something a little more like this...
Meet The Road Island Diner, Oakley's newest eating establishment. I. AM. SO. EXCITED. The diner comes to us all the way from Middleton, Rhode Island, where it has been located for over 50 years. The American Diner Museum of Rhode Island selected Oakley City (among 3 other contending cities) to receive the O'Mahoney diner.
A vintage diner in my podunk dream town? This is a beautiful, beautiful day.
