I felt like I was sent back in time when I visited the Famous Fifties Diner at 472 Huntington Turnpike in Bridgeport. I met with Kathryn Sanchez who opened the diner in April with her husband. The first thing you notice is the Coca Cola red and white color theme and all the 50′s memorabilia on the walls. I wanted to point out that there was something wrong with the flat screen above the counter seating but then it dawned on me they intentionally wanted it to display in black and white!
The have all the good foods you expect at a diner including Mexican food; Kathryn told me her husband is from Mexico so I can expect some authentic dishes! Since I was there for fifties Americana I had to try a good old fashioned bacon double cheeseburger and fries. They were both excellent and the portion was so large even I could not finish either the burger or fries. The also offer authentic fifties malteds and egg cream sodas but I was way too full to try them.
Most people usually go to diners because of the convenience of comfort food but for me this would be a destination to seek out. The decor, 50′s music playing I was expecting the Fonz or Marty McFly to walk in at any moment. Oh, and the place was so clean! I highly recommend them!
