River City Diner Restaurant Review

: The sister, though not a twin, of the downtown diner by the same name comes swathed in a neon-charged, retro façade with counter and booth seating inside. It’s a come-one, come-all sort of place that serves the kind of all-American fare we count on finding in diners: breakfasts offered all day (pancakes in fun flavors like cinnamon apple and bacon), Mom’s meatloaf, beef liver and onions, classic BLTs, Reubens and burgers with fries. But the kitchen adds lots more fun and funky dishes, like the Rochester Garbage Plate --- that’s two hot dogs, chili, baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad and home fries, topped with cheddar --- and pork barbecue sliders. There’s are vegetable options, too. Try the house Hummingbird cake (pineapple-banana with cream cheese icing) or cheesecake, and what’s arguably the best milkshake around. Also located in Richmond and Northside.
