Most of the time they are served with bbq sauce. They also make a sauce at Pete's that they serve with them. It's kind of like a bbq sauce but it's diffrent. I don't know how to describe it. :?

We have a TON of greasy spoons here (I was actually a cook at one some years back, believe it or not!) How can you not love a place that cooks everything on the same stainless steel surface! Actually, it's kind of a scary thought when you think about it. Hint: Take a look at the grease traps underneath the grill surface!

We have a ton of greasy spoons/diners here in Central PA. Like any kind of restaurant, some are fantastic and others you'd never want to set foot in! There are a couple near us that have great--and very cheap--breakfasts (2 eggs, toast, potatoes and for $1.29, that kind of thing). A couple have fantastic home-made pies and soups, too.

A guy I used to work with was a huge diner fan. I'd like to say it was because he was a foodie but he really was just incredibly cheap and was looking for the cheapest food, no matter the quality. He even had a coffee table book of PA diners that he'd keep in the car so that when he was traveling, he could visit the diners and have the cooks sign the book! :roll:

I'd say that's an accurate definition!

I think of Greasy spoon as those places that are all white inside and out and have the bar sttols at the counter and facing the window. There is often a carry out window too. The burgers are cooked with grilled onions and you can eat the burger in about 4 bites. The buns are steamed. They are usually topped with sliced dill pickles.
