Maid Rite Sandwich Shop 217-222-7527

Maid Rite is a step back in time. I don't know how to say it any different so let me explain. The menus are on the old push in letter boards, you place your order where it is then written on a brown paper bag with your name, the order is shouted out so the cooks can hear, the total is tallied by hand.

The Riverview Diner 630-859-3737
1420 SE River Road Montgomery, Illinois
Not really a diner but, sometimes referred that way. Located along the Fox River the views from the patio are impressive. Food is fresh hot and delicious - just the way a proper diner should be. I don't understand how diners are being replaced by other type of restaurants. Diners are the great American restaurant in my opinion. When you can, say NO to corporate fake food chains and say YES to local family owned diners.
