What Did It Taste Like?
Eleanor: “Both the French Toast and the Coconut Cream Pie were classic American cuisine. No frills, and exactly what you’d expect, but also exactly what you’d want.”
Kenda: “This was my first experience having Moussaka, and I was really impressed! It tasted like a Greek version of Italian lasagna. It was both filling and flavorful, and it went well with the Greek side-salad. The pie was creamy but not runny like so many pies can be. It was enormous; definitely get the dessert for multiple people to share!”
What Did We Say About It?
Kenda: “Savannah is lucky to have The Diner on Abercorn! From the food to the service and the atmosphere, it is definitely something to experience.”
