Chick’s Diner is the place to go if you have never been to an East Coast diner. The food is classic and the crowd is straight out of a novel. Sit relax and pay attention to your surroundings. But please pay heed to the sign over the counter that requests you limit your visit to 45 minutes after you are served.

Chick’s is that place people come to hang out, linger longer than their meal and solve the world’s problems.
Chick’s is open 24/7, closing for a few hours occasionally for regular kitchen cleaning and part of Christmas Day, I was told by the staff. So good chance you can drop in for a meal if you are on I-81 North or South driving past Scranton.
Voted best local burger in 2012 Chick’s holds a place in the hearts of generations of Scrantonians. Be sure to check in on Foursquare if you stop in, let everyone know you were here.
Popular is the Egg Chick Muffin. Ham, Egg, American Cheese on an English Muffin. Simple, easy, fresh eggs cracked to order. Right in front of you on the behind the counter grill late night / early morning. Coffee. Hasn’t changed in 50 years because it doesn’t need to.
Try some smoked kielbasi with your pancakes and eggs. Change of pace if you’re on the road eating at other great places along the way. Then coffee.
