matzoh ball soup

On a recent visit to Westchester, we discovered a diner in Hartsdale, on Central Ave., right next to the fire house, and just south of the "four corners" (locals will know this interesection, but I can't think of the name of the cross street...)I seem to recall it was the Fountain Diner- hope I got the name right! The food was incredible for its portions and it was all delicious! (When I first looked at the menu, I thought it was a little pricey for a simple diner, but then I found out that they served portions that guaranteed needing a doggie bag.)My wife had her first taste of Matzoh Ball Soup there, and she raved about it! A few weeks later, we tried canned matzoh ball soup and she said it was bland and tasteless- she raved all over again about memories of matzoh ball soup at that diner. She says the diner's was a wonderful cornbread texture, with spices like cornbread stuffing, while the canned was just bland dough.
Side comment- we were there at a "slow" time of about 3 in the afternoon, and all the wait staff were staying very busy, cleaning, arranging, keeping the place looking great. That impressed us, too.
