Greasy Spoons?

Does your town/city have a "greasy spoon" restaurant? The kind that you can go in and get a burger for 2 bucks. There is one in Jamestown called AJ's..... 3 hot dogs for $2-something, and that includes fries.

We had one in town years ago but it closed. We have a very good one about 20 minutes from my house called Bates Burgers. It is often packed.

there are so many around my house. not really diners (the diners near me are trying to become 4 star restaurants), but it seems like on every corner, there is a cheap hot dog/burger stand. sometimes, it is only a catering truck that is in the same unused parking lot every day. sometimes, it is in a tiny stand alone building on a small corner lot. the best one is near a small airport (teterboro) called bubba's. great egg and italian sausage sammiches.

Haven't found a good one here yet. Worked in one when I was in college. They lined up out the door on Friday nights for the catfish special.

These are known affectionately as "barf wagons" or "roach coaches" by guys like HH in the construction world. Often have excellent breakfast sandwiches for little money.
