In the spirit of full disclosure, I must tell you that I have a bit of an obsession with the 50’s…… I blame Garry Marshall and Happy Days!  So when I recently came across a list of old diner lingo, it made my retro heart happy.

Good luck and have a fabulous weekend….and remember, if you have any dining etiquette questions, let me know.
