Finally a place for us northerners to call home. I drove by there today and work is in the final stages, As a Diner conniseur I can tell that the owners have put alot of love and money into this place. It is amazing to look at from the exterior red fins to the interior finishes. I can't wait for the opening!!

Where is this place? It'd be pretty cool to go into a Perkins/Tick Tock/Tops Diner type of place again.

any idea about the menu? It didn't strike me as an actual "diner" at all, just a chain-ish restaurant with diner in the name. I'm curious what it will be like.

Seriously...if it doesn't contain a "chicken franchese", a "melt", pancakes until two, big booths (possibly each containing it's own personal juke box), kicka$$ onion rings that could substitute as a meal and a whole big bakery selection by the register....I'm thinkin' it's not really a diner.

Unless there is another one going up, it's located at the corner of route 521 and Ardrey Kell. It's in the same location as a Harris Teeter and a bunch of other smaller stores (pet shop, Subway, spa, and others)

I'm glad to see it is finally opening. It seems as though it has been in progress for a LONG time!

Hmmm...I'll have to find it once it opens. Sounds like it's a bit of a drive but if it's a real "diner" like the ones I remember, I'd make the trip.

I'll check it when it opens.
Not 24 hrs I suppose - otherwise there is always the Waffle House.

I wish the owners the best, it is a hard time to open a restaurant.
Although we were at the new Chili's at the Arboretum around 1:30pm today and it was packed.
