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