Here is what people are saying about the The American Diner Cookbook
4 Star Rating  "Tons of fun!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Hershey, PA (Born in Kewanee, IL)
Tons of fun! This volume sings the praises of diner food--by providing some of the classic recipes. A bonus is brief descriptions of some diners, one of which I have actually eaten at (The Wellsboro Diner in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania; by the way, the food is good there!). There are also numerous photos of other diners, without discussion of these.

Many of these recipes are not overly healthy for one. But the recipes in here comprise an homage to diner food and, as such, provide a little residue of our culture. It is, simply, most enjoyable to relive the standard diner fare in this paperback book.

Here are some standards: corned beef hash and eggs (against my healthier instincts, I routinely order this at a local diner, "Kuppy's," in Middletown, PA) . Potatoes, butter, a small onion, corned beef (chopped), black pepper, and eggs. Put them all together? Yummy! Another standard breakfast dish--the Western omelette (I enjoy fixing omelette's for breakfast and lunch when I have a yen), with butter, onion, green bell pepper, cooked ham, eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic salt.

Other dishes that sound enjoyable to me--chili supreme, sweet and sour cabbage, Philly cheesesteak sandwich, macaroni salad, chicken gumbo, asparagus with cream cheese, French toast, potato pancakes, a huge variety of hamburgers, Santa Fe chicken, corned beef and cabbage, and fish and chips. You want blue plate specials? They are here. Just so, dessert. . . .

Anyhow, this is a lot of fun. It's kind of neat to see the array of diner recipes laid out, page after page. I look forward to playing around with some of these recipes in the future.
5 Star Rating  "Passionate write makes a cookbook" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from cincinnati, OH
The book is full of recipes that were collected by a man who has a passion for the American Diner. At first glance I thought the book was just that, a cookbook. But after receiving it, I discovered much more. This is a guy who share with others the love of the American Diner. In the book he showcases diners across the country. Each one has a page dedicated to it with a picture and description giving the read not only a written narrative but also a pictorial one.
Probably the most interesting reading in this book is the author's forward statement in which he gives the reader a reason as to why he put this cookbook together. In that you see his passion.
I recommend this book to those who love the little place where the waitresses know there customers by name and what they eat. I recommend this book to those who like going into a place that is owned by someone who lives in the same community his restaurant serves.
As for myself, I'm not one who is a literary expert but as an owner of a diner, I really enjoy this book. Not only does it give one a lot of recipes but also shares with the reader a passion for the American Diner.
5 Star Rating  "Bible of Diner Cooking" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from PA, USA
This book is great at offering all the BASIC diner recipes, but doesn't clarify which diner they came from. At any rate, it is a new bible of simple cookery in my kitchen.
4 Star Rating  "Good book of classic diner recipes" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
The title sums up this book, 'American Diner Cookbook'. I was hoping more history on some of the diners that these recipes came from, but I won't hold that against it. It's a cookbook, plain and simple.
3 Star Rating  "Not great, but not bad" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from PA
I am a big fan of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Channel and was hoping for a cookbook that would give me some cool, "different" recipes. This one is in the neighborhood, but doesn't quite do it all the way. The search goes on!
5 Star Rating  "EXCELLENT" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
This is an excellent book with many simple and absolutely delicious recipes. If you don't have a diner nearby, try these recipes at home. You won't be disappointed.
