We came for what they are famous for, unmindful of the two-hour drive from San Francisco - Nifty Southern Cooking, and we left extremely pleased... ♨
FREMONT DINER is a quaint eating joint along the road between Napa and Sonoma. Upon arriving you immediately get the "deep south" feel, quite nostalgic as a rusty old pickup truck greets you at the entrance. Once you enter the screen door, on your left is a vintage refrigerator filled with drinks of all sorts from soda pops to craft brewskies (nice!). All in all it's a 50's homey feel complete with well-grained wooden tables and chairs, and a stainless counter for order-taking where one gets a front row view of the open kitchen - THE PLACE where the the good food buzz is happening!
The long cue was a blessing-in-disguise as we were able to scan the chalk-board menu, make new friends and ask around too which are the good eats. As such we ended up ordering the following highly recommended chows even "Aunt Jemima" will be proud of:
Southern Mac N' Cheese
Oyster Po' Boy
Chicken N' Waffles
All dishes ordered effortlessly passed with flying colors. The only setback was my inability to try their equally famous milkshake, no thanks to their humongous portion size that's too much for my third-world appetite. Something to look forward to I guess on my next visit...
