Silk City Diners are known for their sleek metal siding, busy checkerboard tile, funky bar stools and an atmosphere that teleports you directly to the “Fabulous 50s.” Patterson Wagon Company constructed about 1,500 diners from the mid-1920s to the mid-1960s out of Patterson, New Jersey. Among these still existing historic productions, one Silk City Diner still stands… right here in Lancaster. Route 30 Diner (previously Jennie’s Diner) was built in 1959.
New owners, Pete and Patti Skiadas, have been married for 45 years and have been involved with restaurants for 35 of those years. I know I’m not alone in having familiarity with the building which stands proudly in Ronks, PA. It was quite the hot spot for youngsters to visit throughout their high school and college years. It is also known for being a popular stop for those hungry, weary truckers along the highway.
As you gear up for the snow, make sure you head into Route 30 Diner for their Two for $20 deal which lasts the entire month of January. For just $20 you and a guest will each receive the choice of soup or salad with an entree and a side. And as if that wasn’t enough, you’ll receive dessert as well!
