Those of you who have been to Moody's Diner know that Moody's is not a quaint-on-purpose tourist attraction, nor is it a food editor's prop. It is a diner on U.S.1 in Waldoboro, Maine, plain and simple. It has survived, prospered and grown these 60 some odd years because of good food, reasonable prices and quick, pleasant service. There are people who eat at Moody's every day, and those who come in every time they travel to Maine. Both are made welcome. Locals aren't expected to go elsewhere during tourist season and tourists aren't gouged for their vacation cash.
The American dream is success achieved through hard work and honesty. Moody's Diner encompasses that ideal.
