Headlines has that true diner feel—the décor looks like it’s genuinely from the ‘50s, the place is noisy, bustling, and not sparkling clean, and the food is tastier than a fast-food joint. In fact, all that’s missing is a sassy, past-her-prime waitress named Flo to take your order. The food isn’t amazing, but it’s definitely good, and you’ll have a lot of options—Headlines has a rather extensive menu for a diner, so you don’t just have to settle for a hamburger. They also have breakfast options that they serve all day. The price is pretty reasonable, and you’ll get your food rather quickly. If there’s a big drawback, it’s that Headlines doesn’t make milkshakes, and it looks and feels like the kind of place that should. The burgers would go down much better with a chocolate shake than they do with a kiwi strawberry Snapple.
