Diner food and drive in restaurants are a staple in many areas. They're pretty popular because you can get a fairly quick meal at a reasonable price. These places have become popular with the show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
Many of them have been around for years. Long before that show started. And, you can get some fantastic food at these New Hampshire restaurants.
Some have their specialties and others offer dining deals with the basic burgers, sandwiches and fries.
You definitely have to try some of these drive ins or roadside stands for some great fried fish.
If you're going to go off your diet and splurge, it might as well be at a place like this. The food is usually worth having at least once while on your vacation.
