Like hundreds of other '50s-style diners spawned during the past decade, Lyndy's Restaurant is a good place to get a juicy burger, fries and a Coke, along with a taste of nostalgia--all for a fair price.
But unlike most other culinary shrines to Marilyn, Elvis and James Dean, Lyndy's offers a menu replete with alternatives to the usual diner fare.
If you're not in a mood for a burger, hot dog or milkshake, and didn't get enough of Thanksgiving dinner, Lyndy's dishes up a turkey-and-stuffing meal as good as any. Turkey being a house specialty, it's served any time of year, in the form of full dinners, sandwiches or pot pies--and, of course, always with the sounds of Chuck Berry and Fats Domino on the side.
Even if you walk in craving a burger with a slice of '50s flashback, be sure to peruse the daily specials. The revolving menu offers a wonderfully diverse selection of dishes, including red snapper, cabbage, enchiladas and potato pancakes. One can even order steak, shrimp and barbecue pork chops--all in the same meal, and for less than $8.
