Upholding the Classic American Diner

Parsons Family Restaurant is upholding the classic American diner experience. Nowadays most restaurants have cookie cutter themes with a stiff corporate feel … the prices food quality reflect the big corporate attitude. Big chain restaurants, no matter how hard they try mimic, will never be what we, Parsons, are. The point is not just our little restaurant in Glendale but the experience you get when eating at a classic American diner like ours. Across the United States the small diner has provided the quaint atmosphere to get to know your neighbors. Whether in a big city or small town there is no better place to get a better meal than your local, small, classic American diner.

The benefits of restaurants like Parsons are immeasurable. In general you’ll find more nutritional value out of a diner than a chain restaurant. You see, the classic American diner selects food based on quality and profit, not just profit. All American diners want you to be well fed and healthy so you can come back soon. Given these explanations it would seem Parsons Family Restaurant and the classic American diner at large are physically and mentally a healthier choice over the chain restaurants.
