Probably our favorite diner find is in our home state, not really much of a journey from Blackbird headquarters. We found it on a day of exploring Burlington, NC, and were utterly delighted by the red accordion top shelter and glowing sputnik light.

Not to mention the fact that if you get a cherry coke, they put real cherries in it! Oh, the fruity sweetness! It's a perfect pick-me-up for that next junk shop or antique store. So, while I was thinking about Skid's today, I decided to search for photos of other fantastic burger joints. And now I want to visit every single one, even if it requires a time machine.
