The A-1 Diner has been around for a long time. It has been reviewed by thousands including on the original episode of the Food Networks Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. It is located in an old trolley car on the Maine Street Bridge in Gardiner ME and it is the classic image of what a diner should be. However , when you get inside the small dining area and look up at the menu board featuring eclectic creations you will quickly realize that this is not your typical diner food ( although they do have that also).
For the last day of our Orlando vacation Simone and I took a drive to the other side of town to 2631 S Fern Creek Ave, about twenty minutes away from Disney, to Johnny's Fillin Station, which locals say has the best burgers in Orlando. Johnny's Fillin Station is by all descriptions- a dive- it looks like it may have actually been a gas station at one time, but the atmosphere only adds to the fun.
Yellow Dog Eats is in Windermere, Florida - only about a ten minute drive from Disney. However, even if it was 100 miles away it wouldn't matter because it would be worth the drive. I researched this place on tripadvisor and I'm so glad I did.
