So I'm guessing nothing has changed since the first book with regard to this recipe. Does the new book just add some additional recipes or does it revise existing ones?

Why Diners Are More Important Than Ever

The statement I most agree with is that the diner experience is not focused on the food. Whenever I see a diner I have not tried before I like to go in. I enjoy the atmosphere of them and I like to find out how long a place has been around. Unfortunately the food is rarely very good. I usually try the meatloaf hoping that I will find a good economical place to get my favorite dish.
It seems to me that if a diner would limit the menu and just do a few things really well they could keep costs under control and still keep people coming back. Breakfast is a slam dunk ... its pretty hard to mess that up, but give me a descent meatloaf, some good chicken and dumplings, and an above average burger and fries ... that's all I ask.
