Do you ever wonder what happened to the classic dining experience of the 50s? Fast food has taken those burgers and shakes and put them in soulless settings with no red vinyl seating or chrome lined counters in site. If you’ve been to a cute chrome countered diner in the last five years you’ve probably seen more options for sweet potato fries and bison burgers with aioli then the traditional fare.
Don’t get us wrong, we think a diverse diet is swell but when it comes to menu items like chocolate shakes don’t try and sneak us almond milk or natural sugar replacements, we want the real thing. We want that true blue diner experience. It all started when they go rid of the car hop. Sure, drive-throughs are so much easier and season friendly, you don’t even have to interact with a human being. Now, with the loss of those friendly servers be they on roller skates or in sneakers we lost the soul in our meat patties with cheese, we lost the spirit of the classic fifties dining experience.
If you want to be a part of a bygone era, you can become one of those cheerful servers bearing diner classics in this 50s car hop uniform. Whether you’re opening a classic 50s diner or you’ve got a part in a play this uniform with its starched white shirt, pants, and apron and the red pinstriped vest will make you feel as wholesome as that grilled cheese sandwich cook made so skillfully. Top it off with the red bow tie and diner cap and you’ll look as sweet and classic as the cherry pie that’s on special every Friday afternoon. Forget super sizing, let’s soulful-ize those fries!
