Spinner's Diner
Anthony, KS


Spinner's Diner was originally known as the Green Spot. In previous years, this Valentine diner had gone by the names of Ken's Diner and Bob's Diner. By 2018, it was known as the Roadrunner Diner. I believe it has been closed since around 2020. Work was going on when these 2023 photos were taken. For more, see this website. [map]

Valentine diner
Ellinwood, KS


This Valentine diner opened here as a liquor store in 1949. It was vacant and used for storage for many years. By 2022, the siding had been removed and the diner was housing Succulents and Gifts. It appears to be vacant now. The original cabinets are gone and the stools have been moved around. For more, see this website. [map]
