Malt, Two Dog Diner (Photo by Lisa Truesdale/ Longmont Observer)

What’s on the Menu?: Two Dog Diner Both Delights and Disappoints

I remember a little diner we used to frequent in Chicago when I was little. It was a long and skinny room with a counter running the full length of the place, and all the stools were covered with bright red glittery vinyl that made a squeaking noise when you rubbed against it. The stools also spun you around in dizzying circles if you tried hard enough. I don’t remember what I ordered, but I do remember that every meal ended with a scoop of ice cream in a little metal bowl. Oh, and the waitress kind of looked like my grandma, but with a tall beehive hairdo and a frilly pink apron.
