Cruising through some other threads looking for some classic comfort food inspirations, and it got me to thinking of the lingo back int he day, when phone calls had to be made by spinning a dial....of some of the classic diner lingo...

 

 

What do you know of?  Share it!

 

SOS = Sheit on a Shingle = chipped beef gravy on toast.  Chipped beef is a whole other topic worthy of much discussion and appreciation.

 

my grandpa was career Navy.  This was one dish I remember from him.  And there was something about Ham and white beans (navy beans) every Wednesday.~  John's dad was HMSRM and he ate chocolate bar sandwiches.   Yep, a chocolate bar with bread. 

 

B&G- biscuits and gravy= buttermilk biscuits and white or white sausage gravy

 

Adam and Eve on a raft= poached eggs on toast

 

Beanies and Wienies- baked beans and hot dogs  this was the Saturday daily special every saturday at the little cafe I worked at way back in the day...like the jurassic era....:lol:

 

Fry2-  short for 2 eggs, hashbrowns and toast

 

1 high

short stack

full stack

(pancake lingo~)

 

something about 'put some shoes on it' = To Go...

 

What do you remember? or still use? 

 

 

TB better be posting up a whole dictionary in here~  ;)  <3

He wants a hockey puck & make it cry with no rabbit food on whiskey down and a small moo juice.  And put wheels on it.

 

(well done burger with onions, no lettuce {tb!} on rye toast with a small milk to go.)


It felt like satan pissed in my mouth it was so hot and lasted a long time. It was a horrible experience eating one of them. - SavinaRed

From my days waiting tables at Big Boy's....

 

Tube steak - hot dog

Wreck 'em - scrambled

Fish eyes - tapioca pudding

Sinker - doughnut

we are NOT talking about extracting leftover capsaicin from excrement!  :lol:  Some know what that topic is about~~~~

 

Here's a vid that shows the classic SOS of what I remember-  The first diner I worked at made SOS occasionally as a daily special, and i also made it a few times in the cafe.

TAPIOCA!  Very good!  and again, the cafe I worked at made baked custards and bread pudding from scratch. 

 

Florence Axelson made the baked goods and at the Christmas party made a killer eggnog...pretty sure it was only for 21+ but I still got some (at ~15)

My dad would use all sorts of fancy lingo at the diner he took me to all the time as a kid, but more than likely he was actually making racist or sexually inappropriate comments that I didn't understand yet..
