Diner Drivin'

Holly’s Diner has been closed for a few days, while HH and I take a little road trip and scope out a few diners along the way. One of my favorite shows is Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri on the Food Network. Guy talked about one called Emma Jean’s Holland Diner. We were excited to see it, and when we found it on Sunday it was closed. Bummer.

We found another interesting place not too far away, Johnny Reb’s. It seems to be a mini chain (four in Southern California), where we stopped for breakfast. We liked it! They had a few things you rarely see – bottle of honey on the table (I appreciate that!), peppered vinegar water (for the bbq served later in the day), scrambled eggs with cheese as a standard on the menu(!), and HH’s milk for breakfast served in a Mason jar – the biggest glass of milk he has ever gotten at a restaurant!

Tomorrow we will pass Peggy Sue’s 50’s Diner, so we will have to decide if we want to stop there or try Emma Jean’s again. I’ll let you know.
