The Roadshow will film an interview with owners at the diner next week

ATASCADERO — Local restaurant A-Town Diner will be hosting a visit from America’s Best Restaurants (ABR) in late February 2024.

America’s Best Restaurants will bring its ABR Roadshow to the restaurant on Thursday, Feb. 29. Popular dishes will be highlighted, along with an on-camera interview with owners Robert and Melinda Davis about the restaurant’s special place in the community. The episode will be aired on social media channels at a later date.

The Davises took over the restaurant from the previous owner, Jeanie Dagnall, in the fall of 2022. They offer a classic diner-style menu in a retro 1950s atmosphere after undergoing an extensive dining area renovation late last year. 


The diner opens daily at 5:30 a.m. (6 a.m. on weekends), beginning a day of hearty selections such as biscuits and gravy, Larry’s Scary Breakfast Burrito, burgers, and hot and cold sandwiches. Specials are posted on social media, and can include such upscale items as bacon-wrapped sirloin, smothered pork chops, homemade soups and a Monte Cristo with raspberry dipping sauce. 

America’s Best Restaurants will be filming on location on Thursday, Feb. 29, from 2 to 5 p.m. The restaurant’s finished episode premiere date will be announced on their Facebook page and will be featured on America’s Best Restaurants’ website at
