    "It's a book to keep in the car, to refer to before and during all Pennsylvania road trips, and great fun to travel through anytime. It makes me yearn for new trips, new encounters, and new daily specials." --Rick Seback, WQED-TV.

    Built of stainless steel in a factory and transported to its site of operation, the diner is a unique American form that remains especially visible in Pennsylvania. Diners are known for their home-style cooking and nostalgic appeal, but according to roadside historian Brian Butko and geographer Kevin Patrick there's more to the story. Having visited some of the most famous establishments, they explain that diners have become an integral part of the landscape and the communities where they continue to thrive.
