Dan’s Classic All American DINER

Touts a jukebox and seats covered in red vinyl. 1881 South High Street Columbus OH

Urbanspoon gave it a 93 % positive rating.  Check it out here. Next time I visit I will photograph the interior.  Meatloaf and mashed potatoes or breakfast all day.

  1. Absolutely love it! There are a couple neighborhood diners that I frequent for no other reason than to keep them there. America is big enough for McDonald’s, Burger King, and diners like Dan’s, above — and I’ll put my money where my mouth is and spend it at the diners.

  4. I’m with John on that one! I wish we had a bigger “diner” culture in our city!

  9. Meat loaf is always a good test to determine the quality of food at a diner.

    There are SO many diners and good out-of-the-way places to eat in Louisville and also Southern Indiana. Of course there are the high class places, too, but they just aren’t as much fun. I mean going to a diner with GREAT food is a real treat!

  11. This place looks like a classic. I bet their breakfast is fantastic.

    Ours is called The South Street Grill and has mementos of Elvis on the walls. Dessert is made by a local lady and yummy.

  13. We visit one in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, that’s lots of fun!

  14. I also agree with John: I would support the place if I lived nearby and their food was good.
    And I must say that I love the font that they’ve used in the “Classic All American Diner” sign.
