You Can Dine in a Vintage Chevy At This 1950s Inspired Diner in Indiana
When you step inside this diner you'll instantly be transported back to the 1950s.
What is it exactly that makes a restaurant a diner? Well according to Delighted Coooking a diner is a place that typically specializes in American fare, and offers seating at tables, and a communal counter.
Diners date all the way back to the late 1800s, but they actually peaked in popularity around mid-century from the 1930s to 1960s.
One major feature of a diner is the style and type of food. Many diners serve a variety of breakfast foods at any hour of the day. Common fare includes scrambled eggs, pancakes, burgers, sandwiches, pie and the like. Prices are traditionally quite reasonable and specials of the day are common.
Indiana's Knuckle Sandwich
Today on Facebook my dad sent me a post about a diner in Indiana, and I had to share it with you because it's super cool! Just south of Indianapolis in Bargersville, Indiana is a diner called the Knuckle Sandwich. Don't let the Knuckle Sandwich's modern exterior fool you, because once you step past their front door, you'll be transported back to the 1950s. The Knucklehead Diner opened at this new location in early 2023, and they made sure to go all out with the vintage decorations on the inside.
Dine in an Old Chevy
Of course, when you step into the Knuckle Sandwich the first thing you see is a vintage Chevy that has been turned into a dining booth. Wild, right?
I checked their menu online, and they have a wide array of burgers, a gigantic tenderloin sandwich (hey it's Indiana), and pizza.
