Lovers of the classic fifties-style diner should take note of Gypsy's Shiny Diner in Cary. It looks the part and it tastes the part. I made my first visit this weekend. I can't give a comprehensive account of the menu, but I can say that the place serves excellent homemade potato chips. These are not to be missed. They rival the fine chips at Sandwich in Chapel Hill.
I look forward to digging into the rest of the menu -- pancakes, fries, milkshakes, etc. Prices are very reasonable. Our bill came to $20 and we left stuffed.
