And One of the Best in the Country
In This Issue: A Tour of Marietta
When you read the name of the Marietta location that we’re highlighting in this section of our newsletter this month, you might wonder why we haven’t featured it before! That said, better late than never to highlight one of my favorite restaurants in town, and one of the best diners in the country, the Marietta Diner.
The Marietta Diner was founded in 1995, but its outer facade will transport you back to the 1950s, when chrome-plated, neon-lit diners were the coolest places in town. However, it’s more than just appearances that make this diner stand out from the rest — the Marietta Diner was featured on Guy Fieri’s hit Food Network TV show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” and its menu touts the restaurant’s ranking as the No. 1 diner in Georgia, and the third-best diner in the entire country.
The thing that makes the Marietta Diner so special — and keeps its customers coming back for seconds — is that they don’t specialize in any one dish. They have something like 500 items on their menu, and to my knowledge, they’re all worth trying. Their portions are huge — including the desserts, which are some of my favorite items on the menu. There are few dishes more satisfying than a huge slice of cake from the Marietta Diner.
As if just having hundreds of stellar meals wasn’t enough to make this local treasure worth checking out, you can also eat anything off their menu at any time of day. The Marietta Diner is open 24 hours a day, which means you could have a late night surf and turf at 2 a.m., or enjoy a juicy burger for breakfast at 8 a.m. The cooks at the Marietta Diner make sure that your options are limitless.
Whether you’re a Marietta local, or you’re from out of town and you’re looking for a great place for a bite to eat, swing by the Marietta Diner. It’s impossible to leave with any disappointment — or any room left in your stomach!
