Subliner Diner - A Classic 1950's Themed American Diner
May 14, 2022
The 50s are back at the Subliner Diner. They take you back in time to the 1950s! Break out your favorite poodle skirt and enjoy a fun-filled meal.
We had to check out the Gulf Shores' classic Subliner Diner destination.
They had mouthwatering milkshakes that looked straight out of the 50s, or at least like pictures I've seen of them. I wasn't born, quite yet!
The Subliner Diner was in the heart of the beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama. It definitely turned back the hands of time – to the 1950s! When you walked in, it felt like you were teleported back in time.
They had retro newspaper menus, which I was quite impressed to see. Collector cars were inside and outside, hand-spun milkshakes and classic diner cuisine. Have a seat, enjoy a tasty treat and throw some quarters in the jukebox. It was a fun experience with great food.
They had delicious waffles and served breakfast all day. Which happens to be one of my favorites! The waffles were as fluffy as the fluffiest clouds you have ever seen!
Kyle's burger was HUGE and he thought it was great!
The Subliner Diner is sure to become your favorite spot to hang out and enjoy some great cuisine!

Joke of the Week
Four old retired guys are walking down a street in Yuma, Arizona. They turn a corner and see a sign that says, "Old Timers Bar - ALL drinks 10 cents." They look at each other and then go in, thinking, This is too good to be true.
The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, "Come on in and let me pour one for you! What'll it be, gentlemen?"
There's a fully stocked bar, so each of the men order a martini. In no time the bartender serves up four iced martinis - shaken, not stirred - and says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please." The four guys stare at the bartender for a moment, then at each other. They can't believe their good luck. They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and order another round. Again, four excellent martinis are produced, with the bartender again saying, "That's 40 cents, please." They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity gets the better of them. They've each had two martinis and haven't even spent a dollar yet.
Finally one of them says, "How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a dime apiece?"
"I'm a retired tailor from Phoenix," the bartender says, "and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the Lottery jackpot for $125 million and decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime. Wine, liquor, beer - it's all the same."
"Wow! That's some story!" one of the men says. As the four of them sip at their martinis, they can't help noticing seven other people at the end of the bar who don't have any drinks in front of them and haven't ordered anything the whole time they've been there. Nodding at the seven at the end of the bar, one of the men asks the bartender, "What's with them?"
The bartender says, "They're retired people from Minnesota. They're waiting for Happy Hour when drinks are half-price."
