#20 Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

I like watching “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” because the types of food really appeal to me. They are things that I would like to eat or even cook (e.g., BBQ ribs and burgers). Having said that, I have heard that while the meals look very appealing on TV, in real life they may not be all that good. Regardless, I wanted to experience it. What better way was to choose a lobster place in Maine.

On our way up the Maine coast, we zeroed in on one. A diner with a real catchy name: “Maine Diner”, located in Wells, which is in southern Maine. The diner was packed, having to wait 30 minutes to get in. A very popular place.

I had to have the much acclaimed lobster pie while Mary Ann had the lobster quiche.

The menu states for the lobster pie: “Featured in “The Cook’s Magazine” May/June 1985; “Good Food, Road Food” August 1986; “Eat Your Way Across The USA”; NBC’s Today Show 1997, and Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives 2010. Our Specialty – A secret recipe that our family has passed along. Tender chunks of fresh lobster meat are topped with our own delicious crumb and then baked to perfection in a casserole dish.”

Was it as good as advertised? No. But we enjoyed the meal and the diner atmosphere.

Would I go to that diner again? Yes. Would I go to another “DDD” diner or dive? Yes
