I am spoiled growing up in a town with multiple highly rated eating establishments within a 20 mile radius.
Even if it costs a little bit more money for each pie, I’d much rather order from a local diner over a chain diner any day of the week.
Not to mention the one closest to my house, which is consistently rated number one in the area, is run by an Italian and the supplier goes back generations. It is our town’s oldest eating establishment and is an integral part of the cultural history of our community here. They were one of the longest running sponsors for our multiple youngsters sports teams in elementary, middle university, and high university. This is the same diner I frequented when I was playing little league football and the arena where I had my first date a few years later. As superb as they are, the building is outdated and has needed ongoing renovations over the years. They tore up the floors when I was in university and put down italian cement in the home office and slip resistant cement in the kitchen. However, the single most annoying thing that used to encourage myself and others to order take-out or delivery was the indoor air quality in the diner. I think that kitchens are hot, but that building clearly lacked proper Heating, Ventilation and A/C. I’m cheerful to say that this amazing eating establishment now has a cold a/c inside. Countless buyers have commented about how comfortable it is inside the diner now. They saw a big increase in sit-down dining almost right away. Hopefully they chose a quality commercial Heating, Ventilation and A/C plan with a high SEER rating.
