Classic Baltimore diners?
Driving to Baltimore, hoping to visit an old-fashioned diner with decent food. Any suggestions?
Personally, I don't understand the allure of diners, but . . . If you are looking for the type that are in silver train cars, there are several of those around. If you are looking for an old Baltimore storefront type place that serves diner food, then I would point you to the G and A Restaurant on Eastern Avenue in Baltimore.
G & A Restaurant
3802 Eastern Ave
Baltimore, MD 21224
Don't confuse it with a similarly-named restaurant (G & M) in Linthicum known for its crabcakes, which people either love or hate.
I don't really think we have any great diners....
The only diner that I would be willing to eat at is Paper Moon. It sure isn't old-fashioned, but it does meet your requirement of having "decent food."
You will remember the decor far longer than the food.....
New Wyman Park Restaurant, 25th and Howard.
Pete's Grille, 32nd and Greenmount.
Great breakfast and lunch at both places.
