    I don't have any pics, and most of them aren't in the state I live in. I like the small mom and pop diner's the best. The food is usually good and the quantity for the price is high. You can always find some specialty as well, some little twist they do that is unique to that business and area. This is my grandfather's fault. He used to take me fishing every summer, often in Delaware bay, but sometimes other places, and we always stopped for a meal either before or after in a small diner.

    There's not as many of these places down here as there were where I grew up in Pa. There's the Mason Jar on Rt. 19 in Lake County, but without a car I can't get to that one any more. There was a small one in Ocala near where we used to live that was based on trains (I can't remember the name) and used to offer Green Eggs and Ham for the kids. My son used to be obsessed with trains when he was small, and he could recite Green Eggs and Ham, so we went there fairly frequently. I haven't found any that I can get to in this area, everything is chains, though there are some from smaller chains that have that mom and pop feel.
