In Ann Arbor there is famously the Fleetwood diner but it does not have the same feel as I imagined a diner should have. It was not the movie diner of my youthful dreams. I know my adolescent ideas are not always realistic or attainable but that does not stop me from trying. Fleetwood is good food, not great but its more about the Fleetwood experience than the actual food anyway. Fleetwood is always busy and the waitresses act accordingly, effectively getting people seated and finished ultimately for better turn over. Plus no apple pie a la mode, it does not count if I can't get a slice of apple pie. That is why I was excited to try Northside Grill, I love Fleetwood and it will always be part of Ann Arbor as long as Ann Arbor exists but its not the diner experience I want.
