Nostalgic Greasy Spoon Diner Jul 01, 2017
There has been a diner at this spot as long as I can remember, and back in the day it was called Ted's Diner. A bit of a tin can looking place for cheap eats since the late 1960's in my memory. In the 1990's it transformed into it's modern form by the name of Poor Boy's. It is just off exit 5 of I-93 and visible from the highway. The place has a bit of nostalgia inside, hearkening back to an earlier time with some retro decor. Though the place has itself changed, the food is very much the same for the most part as it's always been - American greasy spoon diner style. It's a favorite among the locals and gets busy at times, but the service is usually speedy with a smile. Average price and fair for the food quality.

Breakfasts fare includes basic eggs, omelets, and combo meals, pancakes, French Toast, Prime Rib and Eggs, and Biscuits and Gravy. Appetizers include Potato Skins, Mozzarella Sticks, Fries, Onion Rings, and Chicken Quesadillas. Seafood is on the menu with Fried Clam Strips, Fried Haddock, Fish and Chips, Surf and Turf, and Baked Stuffed Lobster Pie. Dinner options are Meatloaf, Roast Beef, Prime Rib, Fried Chicken and Beef Liver and Onions. Italian options are Lobster Alfredo, Veal Parmesan, Scampi, Eggplant Parmesan, and Baked Manicotti. Burgers aplenty her with Mushroom, Pepper, Double, and Angus. The Sandwich Menu offers BLT’s, Tuna Melt, Egg Salad, Grilled Cheese, and Roast Beef. Subs include Italian, Turkey Breast, Chicken Parmesan, and Meatball. Salads offered include Garden, Chef, and Buffalo Chicken. Soups range from French Onion to Corn or Clam Chowder, Prime Rib Sandwich and lobster roll. Also available are triple deckers and wraps. For the kids there are Hot Dogs, Burgers, PB&J, and Mac and Cheese. Deserts on the menu are Apple Pie a la Mode, Homemade Strawberry Shortcake, Cheesecake, and Oreo Cookie Bash Cake.

@Paul - Thanks for the compliment. Fun to reminisce about the place I grew up around. I had a memory of that old tin diner where Poor Boy's now sits and was glad I could find a couple photos to show.

@Stacey - Diners are definitely a long standing tradition in the USA and one that has not been crushed by the predominance of chains. I enjoy them too!
