Red Planet Diner

The Red Planet diner was a fun place to eat. As you entered the diner, you are greeted by a sign that indicates: Welcome Earthlings!

The diner is just that: it is not elegant surroundings, fancy waiters or fancy menus. It is all-American eating. The menu ranges from Japanese noodle bowls, to HUGE baked potatoes (as a main course), to meatloaf or prime rib(on Saturday nights). The portions are large and the prices are reasonable. The selections that we tried were all very good.

The dinner selections feature a Solar Salad that is excellent. It comes with a vinagrette dressing, gorgonzola cheese and walnuts. The greens are fresh and tender (no iceberg lettuce here!) and the cheese and nut combo are really tasty. If you do not like vinagrette, other dressings are available. The dinners also came with a stir-fried fresh veggie--mostly green and waxed beans that were excellent--I could not place the flavors in the beans but they were wonderful! (probably too much butter:0)

The main "dining room" featured a large flat screen tv--we watched "Close Encounters" as we waited for our food to come. One area of the diner featured the traditional counter. Nice if you are eating alone. The chairs had funny sayings on the back of them that added to the humor of the diner. The diner also features a full service bar.

All in all, this is a place that I would return to and enjoy another salad!
