Roundabout Diner (Portsmouth, NH)

Roundabout Diner (Portsmouth, NH)

I recently said on Instagram, but one of my goals has become to go to a diner in every state.  Yes, they do exist!  I’m not obsessed with the goal, but it allows me to see various parts of the country.  Am I ever going to spend thousands to go somewhere to go to a diner?  No, but if I am in the state, I’m going to go.

During my brief trip through New Hampshire, I decided to stop at the Roundabout Diner in Portsmouth.

Atmosphere: A
This diner is precisely where you would think it is, on a roundabout.  It’s also attached to a Best Western Hotel which makes for a great stop if you are driving somewhere and need to stop for the night.  That’s precisely what we did.

Coffee: A
The coffee was brewed hot, and fresh.  One thing that impressed me was the New England logo mugs.  In all, it was an excellent coffee.

Food: A
The Roundabout Diner has everything you would want in a diner.  There are plenty of breakfasts, lunch, and dinner options.  Since it is New England, they did have plenty of Lobster options as well.

I opted for the “Pile Up Burger” sandwich because it was one of the “staple” choices.   It came on Sourdough bread with 1/2 lb. burger, pulled pork, turkey, ham, bacon, cheddar cheese, egg, slaw and Russian Dressing.

It was a lot of food.  I finished the majority of it and saved the rest in our hotel fridge.  There are only a few diner meals I haven’t finished before!

Service: A
On a Friday night, the diner was busy.  The waitress was moving between tables, and we could see her working extremely hard.  I was impressed, but she made time for every single table.

Cost:
For my burger and coffee, it was 20.  For the amount of food, it was a good deal.

Overall Thoughts/Summary:
In all, I’m pleased with my food, and I have no complaints.  It is in the top 10% of diners I’ve been too ever (in NJ or out of state), and I have no complaints!
