I love diners, especially old-school joints with a classic feel and a simple concept. I went to visit my dad a few weeks ago and he took me to an awesome little gem called the Cove Diner in
It's owned by a guy named Ron and he's turned this vintage truck stop into a 50s themed diner with a car repair center on the other side. According to my dad, this was THE truck stop in the 50s and 60s, complete with sleeping rooms upstairs and full-service truck repair/fueling station. My dad says he and his friends used to frequent the 24-hour diner as a teen after a night of mischief.
It's so stinkin cute, y'all. It's homey and vintagelicious and just plain fun. Who doesn't want to eat their scrambled eggs in retro booths and checkerboard floors?

|Oldies in the jukebox. Elvis, Frankie Valli, and Chubby Checker.|
|Cheap eats. The best.|

If you find yourself in Beaver County, Pennsylvania anytime soon, be sure to drop in to the Cove Diner.
And tell Ron that Joe's daughter sent you.
