Diners are an American culinary staple. What other place can you get pancakes, a martini, and a triple-decker sandwich? But, where does the word "diner" come from? And why do many diners look like old silver train cars?

On today's episode, we're breaking down the history of the diner. While many people associate them with the 1950s and 1960s, we're going all the way back to the 19th century to explore the real origins of this beloved culinary institution.

Food History is a show all about... well, the history of food. Join host Justin Dodd as he brings you the stories of how your favorite meals ended up on your plate.
