Hi-Lo Diner (Minneapolis, Mn)

While staying in Minnesota, I knew I wanted to go to a diner. The timing worked out, so after some research, I found the Hi-Lo Diner in Minneapolis. I’ve never been to Minneapolis or the Twin Cities, so it was a nice stop. I ordered online, and by the time we got to the Hi-Lo Diner, the food was ready.

Driving through Minneapolis, evoked emotion, I didn’t know it would. Signs remembering George Floyd and Justice for Goerge Floyd are everywhere.

Lola’s Diner (Park Ridge, IL)

On my journey across the country, I decided to stop at Lola’s Diner in Park Ridge, IL. I knew I wanted to stop at a diner in Illinois to check that off. Sadly, many Chicago diners were either closed on Tuesdays or closed due to COVID. I stumbled upon Lola’s Diner just outside of Chicago and near the airport.

Andover Diner

Recently I was at the Andover Diner in Andover, NJ.  It’s close to one of my favorite airports: Aeroflex-Andover Airport. Anyway, since I was in the area, I decided to stop at the Andover Diner.  Which, for now, seems to be my last New Jersey Diner for a while.

Like all of New Jersey restaurants, the Andover Diner is only open for outdoor seating and takeout. We chose to do takeout.

Double S Diner (Wantage)

Recently, I was up in Wantage, NJ way up in North Jersey. I’ve heard the Double S Diner is good, so I decided to check it out. The Double S Diner is known as a “farm to table” diner. There aren’t many farm to table diners.  A couple of other ones I’ve been to include Vincentown as well as Silver Diner.

While outdoor diner is open in New Jersey, I’m not ready to do a lot of it just yet. So we ordered takeout from the Double S Diner.  I appreciate I can still support local businesses.

Double S Diner Atmosphere: A
The Double S Diner sticks out in Sussex, NJ. There isn’t a lot but farmlands, and it’s hard to miss. The outdoor seating looks evening spaced, and everyone was wearing masks. I was able to get my takeout quickly.

Double S Diner Coffee: X
With takeout, I haven’t been getting coffee. I do miss diner coffee and maybe one of these days I’ll get some.

Double S Diner Food: A
The Double S Diner menu has everything you want in a diner and more. There are healthy options like salads, all-day breakfasts, “farm to table burgers,” home fries, specials, and everything. I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but the Jack Daniels Burger caught my eye. The Jack Daniels Burger came with pepper jack cheese, fried onions, and BBQ sauce.

While the burger itself doesn’t look like the most appealing ever, let me tell you it was delicious. It was cooked perfectly, and there was plenty of seasoning. I was pleased with my selection.

Double S Diner Service: A
The hostess at the Double S Diner was friendly and made me feel safe and welcomed in the Double S Diner.  It’s a diner I would feel comfortable dining outside if we end up back out there.

Double S Diner Price:
For the Jack Daniels Burger, it was $13.95.

Overall Thoughts/Would I Come to the Double S Diner?
I liked the Double S Diner, and it was one of my favorite diners in Sussex County. If you are hiking up north or find yourself in Wantage, I highly recommend going.

Sparta Classic Diner (Sparta)

Recently I ordered takeout from the Sparta Classic Diner in Sparta, New Jersey. The same people own the Sparta Classic Diner as the Orangetown Classic Diner in Orangetown, NY (seriously a must go), Northvale Classic Diner and the Tenafly Classic Diner.  All of these “classic diners” have been good and I had high hopes for the Sparta Classic Diner.
