Everything’s Alright… at the Starlite…

Published July 16, 2009 - 1 Comment

Before we left for PEI, I said “I don’t want to eat anywhere that I could eat in NB.”  I’m getting so sick and tired of fastfood restaurants, and I didn’t want to waste my time and money over there on something that I could get here. 

As we were driving past Moncton the munchies started to hit.  I could have stopped before the Confederation Bridge, but I wanted to push through and get something on the other side.  I didn’t know what, but I knew that I wanted something from PEI. 

We stopped at the first place we came across. The Starlite Diner.  Maybe it was the giant icecream cones that caught my eye.

Maybe it was the word “diner”.  By that time I was pretty hungry.  But whatever it was, we stopped and went in.  It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a place like this, with the 50s theme, and all the stuff that goes with it.  I laughed when I looked through the jukebox songs.  Ah, good times. 

I decided to try the fries with the works.  Apparently that means hamburger, onion and gravy smothered over the fries.  Oh, and a strawberry milkshake, which was excellent… and for almost $4, it should have been. I would have liked to have tried dessert, but I was pretty full and wanted to get going to our next destination.
I found a much better review of the Starlite Diner here, and borrowed their picture, as I forgot to take one myself.
