I would have everything that a diner should have! Massive burgers, footlong hot dogs (called a Dogzilla), tons of sammy's, salads and soups and you've GOTTA have one of those glass-enclosed carousels that have all the slices of pie! :D

For a diner it would have to be truckstop, all the way.

If I went for soul food, it would be good greasy soul food with a heavy cajun accent (my mother is cajun so I cant help it) serving sausage with rice and beans, jambalaya, gumbo and breakfast 24 hours a day.

If I went mexican it would be good mexican trucker foods such as pork rind in tomatillo sauce burritos, refried pork beans, huevos rancheros, bistec ranchero and all those spicy, greasy foods acompanied by 50c coffee.

Idealy I would do both of course... sould food and Mexican. Oh yeah...

Great point about truckstops, Lugaru! I have a special place in my heart for truckstops and the food! Probably goes way back to when I was a kid and my parents and I would go on cross-country roadtrips to visit relatives in California and Oregon or to see the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone. They're like a small town in the middle of nowhere always open, never closed and the food is the best comfort food of the area. Call me nostalgic, I like truckstops! :D

I'd fly over to Greece and kidnap a good friend of the family. She is by far the best cook I know.

I'd have a full Greek menu. All the old favorites.
and an American one too.

On the American side I'd offer.... hamburgers and homemade French Fries,
Fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, Home made onion rings, Milkshakes, homemade pies and ice creams, Clam chowder, Split pea soup,
beef and veggie soup, grilled cheese sandwiches with choice of cheeses, meats and veggies on good thick white bread, chili ( I have the best recipe)
fried cat fish, steamed veggies,French dips, baked potatoes with bacon and tons of butter and salt.... and breakfast served all day long!

When I used to visit my Grandma, we used to sit down at the local truckstop for breakfast or lunch. It was lots of fun to talk to the truck drivers and hear their stories. If I was driving through my Grandma's town, I would look for her at the truckstop, before I would go to her home.

I might have to stop at the 'Flying J' truckstop on I-71, just for old times sake! :D
