Americans love to eat and nothing could be finer than eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner in an American diner! Here is the story of that tasty American original, from the early days of Walter Scott and the first horse-drawn lunch wagons through the birth of the premanufactured dining car industry, the age of streamlining, and the heyday of diner construction during the 1950s.

Fast food restaurants stand aside: The American Diner is a calorie-free, blue-plate special of nostalgia, heaped high with a generous helping of vintage photographs, classic ads, cool collectibles, and amazing architecture.
