But us tourists still love their adventurous food combinations.
Peanut butter and jelly … on a sandwich? Yes, please!
Marshmallows and sweet potatoes … now that you mention it, that does sound amazing!
What’s that? Bacon wrapped burgers?
The American Diner
To a trucker who’s been visiting diners for the past fifty years, a diner probably isn’t much fun at all. It’s just somewhere he packs his butt for the next thirty minutes, knocks back a strong black coffee and fills his stomach with some bacon and eggs before heading back on the road. It’s as monotonous as you or I eating our dinner in the office’s canteen.
But for us tourists, an American diner is like Disney Land. The waitress is the most amazing person on earth when she delivers the killer line “more coffee?” in her thick midwestern accent, and the seats are like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
Even the eggs taste different. Don’t ask me why. They just do.
And the authentic pancakes!
Some diners are even open for 24 hours. That’s amazing.

American’s are probably the same. My American friend hates the New York accent, and she reviles the Texan accent.
But tourists are different – we love them all!….READ MORE ON THE NEXT PAGE
