Park Diner Slider
Name: Park Diner
Location: St. Cloud, MN
Meal: Breakfast Sliders, batter bit potatoes, and coffee
St. Cloud offers its visitors a number of different things. The Granite City has the Mississippi River, solid Midwest character, and some great company. I was happy to be taken to Park Diner; on the west side of town this throwback diner is a silvery slice of Americana. As any good diner should, they serve breakfast all day so I was more than happy to oblige them at noon, on a Monday.
Name: Snow White Grill
Location: Winchester, VA
Meal: Two Mini Burgers, French Fries, and a Chocolate Shake
Type: Hamburger Joint
It should have been obvious to me that Winchester, VA would be home to good restaurants; it was settled in the 1700s and has long been a working town. I was quite happy to come across the Snow White Grill tucked between two larger buildings off of a sleepy pedestrian walking mall in downtown Winchester. The 60-year-old Snow White has been serving up their menu for decades. The Snow White’s claim to fame is their mini burger. The entire restaurant holds a counter of maybe 10 seats with a walk up window for anyone opting to get theirs to go. Not wanting to squeeze me and my camera gear in during the busy lunch hour I opted to get mine to go.
