Greasy Spoons Week Starts Right Now

Starting right about now and going until oh, say 5 p.m. Friday, we'll be taking a closer look at the good ol' American diner and what makes it tick. We'll learn how many chicken-fried steaks a popular diner sells in a month (hint: a lot), talk to a long-time diner employee, experience a day in the life of a diner waitress, and probably tell you more than you ever wanted to know about a particular breed of sandwich. So sit back and prepare for plenty of hangover-curing breakfasts, old vinyl booths, and waitresses that call you "honey." It's officially Greasy Spoons Week.

What's your favorite greasy spoon, and what do you order there? Who makes the best club sandwich in town? What's the craziest thing you've ever seen go down at a Waffle House? If you've got answers to those questions, or just want to give a shout-out to your favorite diner waitress, hit us up via the tipline or leave it in the comments below.
