We’re big fans of the Agawam Diner of Rowley, Massachusetts. The Agawam was founded in 1940, bounced around The Bay State, and settled in a 1950s-model Fodero before resting in the town of Rowley. We’ve enjoyed dishes like hot dogs with homemade potato salad and mile-high banana pie at the Agawam but now want to return to try their chicken pie, which is good, old-fashioned chicken pie with one innovation: it’s served upside down. Also, it’s been named one of the country’s five best diner dishes by The Food Network.
Catch the show or read the story on their website to find out more about the Agawam as well as the other four diner dishes recognized by The Food Network, which include meatloaf in Texas, a bacon waffle topped with eggs Benedict in California, a 3 1/4-pound potato, egg, and cheese dish, also from California, and custard French toast in Rhode Island.
