***** Deli Inn Diner, 1494 South Military Trail, West Palm Beach, Florida 33415, (561) 964-1116.

Got a real good “mom & pop” formica/counter/table/booth seating diner for you…Deli Inn Diner in West Palm Beach.

Not gonna make a big deal about this one, not gonna do it (line-courtesy of President George H.W. Bush…he’s the father)!—breakfast/lunch/dinner joint that does breakfast all-day, salads, burgers/hot dogs, sandwiches, meat/fish/chicken entrees.

You regular readers know that Jeff Eats is a sucker for joints like Deli Inn Diner. I just love the home-town vibe that these joint’s throw off. Absolutely nothing fancy going on here–just “solid” stuff like…the western omelette that I had and the waffle with strawberries that Mrs. Jeff Eats enjoyed.

Now- to fill some space and kill some time!

Personally I don’t care for the name Deli Inn Diner…

Is the joint a New York Kosher Style Deli?
Is the joint an Inn like Motel 6 is? You do remember Tom Bodett’s famous line–“We’ll leave the light on for you.”–sure you do.
Is the joint a Diner like the Greek diners that Jeff Eats “knows” from New York?

If I was renaming the joint, I think that Deli Diner would work—I’d lose the Inn. Here’s my figuring—for sure Deli Inn Diner has loads of “deli” meat sandwiches/hot dogs–so the word Deli works. Next, when I was there—for the life of me, I couldn’t find any beds or guest rooms, so Jeff Eats is gonna deep-six the word Inn…Finally, the joint has formica counter/table/booth seating “sort-a” like you find in New York diners (although its hours aren’t even close to the 24 hours that many New York diners have)—so we keep the word Diner…and there you have it…Deli Diner!

Space filled, time killed…

To wrap things up…Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats really enjoyed our breakfast at Deli Inn Diner.

If you live or work in Deli Inn Diner’s neighborhood give it a shot.

    like zebraman I have never met anyone who has stayed at a motel 6.
    how come the chain is so big if no one stays there?

    As for Motel 6, never even thought ever to stay at one.
