What is the definition of a diner?

fladd | Jun 7, 2001 05:38 PM

This seems like a no-brainer, but what exactly constitutes a diner? Obviously, the classical definition of a prefabricated restaurant with counter service that is hauled out to a remote location still works, but the question is, with that sort of structure vanishing from the American landscape, has the definition evolved? What is the diference between a dive, a joint and a diner?

Help - an entire editorial staff is arguing like crazed weasels over this semantic problem.
