I want to take my nephew out for his 17th birthday. He is a fan of dinner/truck stop type of establishments. He lives in Framingham but it doesn't have to be in that area. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I just read about a reopened diner in Worcester recently, but I don't remember its name.

      since worcester was one place where they used to make diner cars, there's still a number of options out that way. the boulevard diner and the miss worcester are both great old diners, and there are a few others scattered around the city and the surrounding area. check dinercity.com for addresses.

      if you'd rather go south, there's always the modern diner in pawtucket which is a real classic.

      my favorite massachusetts truck stop is the fillin' station in whately, though i imagine that's a little farther from framingham than you'd like to go.

        I think Miss Worcester was the one I read about.

      I'm a fan of J and M right in Framingham on Conn. Path. It gets busy so expect a wait. Not really truck stop but diner. Betty Boop all over the place, vintage signs, etc. Good omelets and large portions. Good home fries too. They always have a pancake special. Long counter if that's where he likes to sit. It does get cramped, though.
      On Fountain St. LLoyds is real old school diner. Short hours, I think he caters to the school bus drivers.
      Of course, Caseys on Summer St. in Natick.
      Vidalia's Truck Stop in Wellesley isn't a truck stop, overpriced average .

        How about Harry's on Route 9 in Westborough? It's an old-school diner that is completely no frills, with good prices and every kind of unhealthy food you can imagine.
