I love diner food so I made sure to have my fill of classic greasy Americana that these late night joints offered when I was in San Francisco.
I'm glad to have had the chance to visit the iconic Fog City Diner at Embarcadero before it went on a serious remodel. It has now reopened minus its neon lights and black & white tiles which is sad because I loved it the way it was.

Lori's Diner, located at the heart of Union Square, reminded me of Pop Tate's Chock'lit Shoppe from the Archies.
Food certainly didn't look appetizing but it sure was filling. I have to admit though that Lori's Diner was my least favorite among the diners I tried.

We also went for snacks at Mels Drive-in which has many locations in California. Some might recognize this diner because there are replicas of Mel's Drive-in at Universal Studios theme parks worldwide.

Mel's Drive-in also gets a failing mark in presentation just like most diners but food, I promise, tasted better than it looked.
