Jukebox Diner, Dinsdale


Has it really been 3 months since I last updated?! Ooof. Have been crazy busy recently. :(

We recently discovered a lovely little retro American diner in Dinsdale next to the car museum – rather aptly named the Jukebox Diner. It’s gorgeously kitted-out with vintage decor, waitresses in diner uniform, and a jukebox belting out oldies. The ambience was superb, the service excellent, and while the food was rather average, it’s such a fresh breath of air from the standard establishments found in Hamilton that we’re inclined to overlook that. The boy wasn’t too fond of his classic burger (which seemed a bit too overloaded with veggies to be a truly American burger), but I thought my chili dog with beef chili, melted cheese and sour cream was pretty good, and I’d definitely want to come back for the waffles and banana split.

Bonus: It’s pretty reasonably-priced for a cafe, especially considering the decor!
