Al Mac's Diner
Fall River, MA
Al Mac's Diner is a DeRaffele diner from 1953. The neon signage appears to be from that time. There was another diner here before this one, hence the signage "justly famous since 1910." Al Mac's Diner is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was nearly demolished in the 1980s. The diner closed in 2012 but has reopened since then. [map]

Nite Owl Diner
Fall River, MA
The Nite Owl Diner, last known as "C.C.'s Nite Owl Diner", is a custom-built DeRaffle from 1956. It looks a little smaller than their typical diner to me. The diner closed in 2002 and it was still vacant as of 2015. The first photo above from the 1950s shows the original diner that was at this site with the same sign that is there today. [map]

Betsy's Diner
Falmouth, MA
Betsy's Diner is a 1957 Mountain View. It was previously located in Allentown, PA where it was known as the Peter Pan Diner. The diner was moved here in 1992. For more, see this website. [map]

Carmen's Diner
Fitchburg, MA
Carmen's Diner is a Worcester from around 1925. It has been Carmen's since 2011. Before that, it was known as the East Side Diner. The front of the diner was widened at some point. For more, see this website. [map]

Miss Florence Diner
Florence, MA
The Miss Florence Diner is a Worcester (#775) from 1941. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was renovated in 2002. Alexander's Restaurant, located behind the diner, was owned by the Alexander family, along with the diner, until 2001. When Alexander's changed names and owners, the sign was renovated. Confusingly, the restaurant's new name of "Silk City" conflicts with the manufacturer of the Miss Florence. For more, see this website. [map]

Lloyd's Diner
Framingham, MA
Lloyd's Diner is a Worcester (#783) from 1942. It was originally located in Orange, MA where it was known as Whit's Diner. In 1990, it was moved here where it was restored and renamed. [map]

Blue Moon Diner
Gardner, MA
The Blue Moon Diner is a Worcester (#815) from 1949. It was originally installed in Winchendon, MA where it was known as the Miss Toy Town Diner. In 1954, it was moved here to replace an older Worcester known as the Blue Moon. The diner was closed for 16 years and reopened in 1976. In 1984, the Blue Moon name was assigned to this diner in recognition of the original diner at this site.

In 1988, new porcelain panels were created for the diner to reflect the name change to the Blue Moon. The interior has oak booths with blue leather seats. This diner is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. [map]

Supreme Roast Beef
Gloucester, MA
Supreme Roast Beef is an O'Mahony from 1949. It was previously Michels Cape Anne Diner and later Chick's Roast Beef. The interior was been extensively remodeled. [map]
