Playboy's Top 10 Late-Night Diners

From Chuck Sudo of Playboy: Late nights at diners are undiluted shots of Americana. Set among heaping mounds of starch, bottomless cups of coffee and enough polished chrome to mark a Golden Age, the best diners evoke nostalgia for years gone by. Wherever there‚s a last call, late-night diners serve as salvation for those who aren't quite ready to go home. And while late-night diners are consistent, regardless of where they're located and right down to waitresses who call all their customers, "Hon," there are a few establishments that are a cut above the rest. Whether it be a signature sandwich like the Diner Grill's "Slinger" in Chicago, or an authentic ambiance such as the one found in Mickey's Dining Car Cafe in Minnesota, these standout late-night nosh spots have something that gives them a character all their own. We sifted through the many qualified contenders and picked 10 that truly embody the American late-night experience.
