Diamond Plate Bar and Grill has been on my "bucket list" for a couple of years, but has been difficult to visit, photograph, and write up.  Why?  It seems like every time I paid them a visit, they were packed with sports fans, and I have a tendency not to do write-ups on restaurants when they're really busy.  Why? I don't like to annoy patrons with my photos, and the staff can't make chit-chat, as they're too busy doing about their tasks.  On Sunday, May 24, 2015, I was finally able to enjoy Diamond Plate Bar and Grill,as I basically "opened up" the restaurant to a mostly empty dining room,  and vacant bar, on a "zero" sports day.

Photo:  On this late Sunday morning, May 24, 2015, I find Diamond Plate Bar and Grill with an empty parking lot, which is nearly unheard of.  Parking is not a problem, as they're located in a shopping center which features ample safe and free parking.

Photo:  Diamond Plate is truly a sports bar, and features pool tables, dart boards, and lots of television screens to allow you to enjoy yourself, and whatever sport is in progress.

Photo:  My server, Sunny, was "camera shy," so I didn't insist on taking her photo, up close and personal, so I had to settle on this long shot, as she texts on her cell phone, after I placed my order.  Yes, that's my beer on the bar, and at $5.25 for 32-ounces, that's a good price for a draught beer at an excellent bar!   On this late Saturday afternoon, she was the only employee - the chef arrived a few minutes later - and she was chatting with a regular patron, who seated himself at the far end of the bar.  

Photo:  The window to the kitchen is just behind the bar... and my burger waits on the shelf.  I can't wait for it!

Photo:  Thank you, Sunny, for snapping my photo, with my burger, and fries...

Photo:  I arrived at Diamond Plate Bar and Grill shortly after the 1100 opening time.  Naturally, I started things off by ordering a 32-ounce draught beer for the price of $5.25, which is entirely reasonable.  I asked for the menu - I already knew what I wanted - and my friendly server, Sunny, said the chef hadn't arrived, but I could place my order at any time.  So, why not just kick back and enjoy a beer... or two?

When it comes to food, I'm truly "old school," so I ordered the Thousand Island Burger from the burger section on the menu.  The burger is like something out of the 1960's, as it starts with a in-house baked bun, a half pound of beef, tomato and lettuce slices, and lots... I mean LOTS of pickle slices, topped off with, you guessed it, Thousand Island dressing!  Of course I had to add mustard, but after taking just one bite, I was instantly transported into "burger heaven."  Diamond Plate Bar and Grill delivers a great burger!

Need I say the lettuce, tomato, and pickle slices were crispy fresh and delicious?  Folks this is an OUTSTANDING burger!

Photo:  The price, at the time of this writing, is $9.00 for this delicious burger.  If the price appears a bit steep, consider this, your sides are included.  When I say sides, I mean you can choose between fries, cole slaw or potato salad.  Talk about delicious options!!!  Today, I just HAD to go for the fries, and I'm glad I did, as I enjoyed some of the best fries that I've eaten in a long time!  

What a great burger!  What a great dining experience!  Although it's taken me a year or so to publish this article, I highly recommend Diamond Plate Bar and Grill for a great burger, and an "honest" price on a draught beer.
