We're a "diner classic"!

According to Merrimack Valley Magazine, "The Dream Diner has quickly become a local favorite in the Merrimack Valley. Located in Tyngsboro, it opened in 1999 and features classic diner fare served in a 1950s retro atmosphere replete with original signage from the era. It’s open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Top: A busy Sunday morning. Lower left: three generations of Merrimack Valley diner history: Bridget Trepsas, owner Marybeth Shanahan, and daughters Mya and Molly Shanahan.

About the Dream Diner

The Dream Diner first opened in 1997, finally realizing our dream of spreading a the fine tradition of the great American diner into the Tyngsboro community. With a lifetime of experience working in the family diner business, we wanted to continue with the winning formula of featuring great food served in healthy portions at reasonable prices in a clean, friendly atmosphere.

After a long-time search for the right facility and location, we purchased and renovated a former doughnut shop on the Middlesex Road, creating an atmosphere for our customers that evokes a less complicated time, when the diner ruled the roadside and the food it served was big, tasty, and reasonably priced.

In 2002, we celebrated our fifth anniversary in Tyngsboro. In that time, we’ve been cited in several articles and reviews for our fine food and service. In 2000, Roadside Magazine described us as one of their top ten breakfast spots and the “Phantom Gourmet” deemed us a “Hidden Jewel.” According to the Phantom, “Everything is made fresh, with a lot of care and a little extra love. It’s a recipe that’s hard to find now that Route 66 is not much more than a memory. But there are a few places where the spirit of the Fifties is alive and well, like at the Dream Diner”

We are now celebrating 25 years in business with some big changes to our diner — including our expansion into an authentic diner that nearly doubles the size of our restaurant. All year long, customers will enjoy events and specials to show our gratitude for their continued loyalty.  

We look forward to many more years of serving the area with a sense of pride and devotion to quality. Ours is a diner that measures our success by how many customers we know by name. So, consider yourself invited to send us your feedback and to become a part of the Dream Diner community.

Did you ever wonder about the "Names" of the omelets here at The Dream Diner? The founder of the Dream Diner, Marybeth Shanahan, thought customers would enjoy reading and knowing about the nostalgia and history of the original diner companies. She wanted to share the Diner History with you as well as the Diner Experience - Great Food, Great Service and Friendly atmosphere – where everyone knows your name. This is what she felt made Diners an icon in American History and why she chose the slogan "Dream Back in Time". Naming the omelets after the Diner Manufacturers is a tribute to a great American success story not only in the basic formulas of hard work and long hours but the appreciation of customer no matter who they are or where they are from. The Diners are and always will be a melting pot of good food and good people. The information that follows was mostly excerpted from Richard Gutman's American Diner Then & Now published by Johns Hopkins University Press (with permission), and my own personal research. Special thanks to Mike Engle for Galion info. — Larry Cultrera

Wilfred H. Barriere, Worcester, MA,1905 - 1906, 1926 - 1936. Barriere built diners of various sizes until 1936.

Bixler Manufacturing Company, Norwalk, OH, 1931 - 1937? Bixler diners featured extreme width for the time period, two-foot double hung windows and a barrel roof with a fancy profile on the ends.

Bramson Engineering Company, Oyster Bay, NY, mid- 1950’s Bramson’s main business was manufacturing large sterilizers for hospitals. In the mid- 1950’s Bramson started building diners as a sideline with one still extant as the Aero Diner in Connecticut.

J.G. Brill Company, Dining Car Division, Philadelphia, PA, 1927 - 1932 Brill was a noted manufacturer of street railway vehicles when in 1927, they introduced a line of all-steel diners. The Capitol Diner of Lynn, Mass. is a surviving example from this company.

T. H. Buckley Lunch Wagon Mfg., Worcester, MA, 1891 - 1908. Thomas H. Buckley became the first “Lunch Wagon King”, setting up wagons in some 250 towns throughout the country.

Campora Dining Car Company, Kearny, NJ, 1957 This short-lived company was started by Jerry Campora, a former shop supervisor at Kullman DIners. The company may have only built one diner.

Comac, Inc., Irvington, NJ, 1947 - 1951. Two Comac built diners still in existence are the Tastee Diner of Laurel, Maryland and Jack’s Diner of Albany, NY.

DeRaffele Manufacturing Company, Inc., New Rochelle, NY, 1933 - present Angelo DeRaffele in 1921 started out as a carpenter, advancing in 1927 to the position of a foreman at P.J. Tierney Sons. In 1933 DeRaffele began to manufacture diners at the old Tierney plant. In 1947 DeRaffele was joined by his son Philip after World War II. DeRaffele is currently the largest manufacturer of diners.

Diner-Mite Diners, Atlanta, GA, 1959 - Present This company has been building modular food-service units of varying shapes and sizes under names such as Module Mobile, Inc. and Diner Group Limited.

Erfed Corporation, Rutherford, NJ, 1956 - mid-1970’s Started by Erwin Fedkenheuer, Sr., the former lead sheet-metal man with Paramount Diners for nearly 20 years prior. Along with his son Erwin Junior, and several other sheet-metal workers from Paramount, the company specialized in the repair, modernization and renovation of existing diners on location.

Fodero Dining Car Company, Bloomfield, NJ, 1933 - 1981 Joseph Fodero started out at P.J. Tierney Sons in 1922.and later for Kullman before starting his own company in 1933. Fodero built some of the more stylish designs in the industry and is noted for its famous winged clock. The Agawam Diner in Rowley, MA is an excellent example.

Galion Diners, Galion, Ohio?. Very little is known of this company, the Penn Yan Diner of Penn Yan, NY was reportedly built by Galion.

John J. E. Hennigan, Worcester, MA , 1907 - 1917 First operating a night lunch wagon in 1899 in Worcester, Hennigan started manufacturing in 1907, building a model known as the Franklin Lunch Wagon.

Kullman Dining Car Company, Lebanon, NJ, 1927 - Present Founded in 1927 by Samuel Kullman, the former accountant for P.J. Tierney Sons. Starting out in Newark, the firm subsequently relocated to Harrison, NJ and then on to Avenel, NJ prior to moving recently to their current state-of-the-art facility in Lebanon. Sam’s grandson Robert is now the President of the company which has always built a high-quality diner. The company (now known as Kullman Industries) also builds modular buildings for uses such as U.S. embassies, prison facilities, schools, and bank buildings.

Manno Dining Car Company, Fairfield, NJ, 1949 - 1978 Founded in 1949 by Ralph Manno, and Vincent Giannotti both formerly with Kullman Diners. Starting out as a diner renovating company, they went on to build various styles of diners including all brick exterior “colonial” diners and some unusual examples with nearly all-glass facades and interesting stainless steel work.

Master Diners, Pequannock, NJ, 1947 - mid-1950’s Master was a small company that built stainless steel diners in 2 or 3 styles and various sizes. The Sunny Day Diner of Lincoln, NH is a small Master diner.

Mountain View Diners, Singac, NJ, 1939 - 1957 This company outsold most all of the other manufacturers in the 1950’s with an aggressive marketing campaign, sending their units all over the country. While attempting to go public in June, 1956 the company foundered and went out of business shortly thereafter.

Mulholland Company, Dunkirk, NY, 1920 - 1930? Founded as the Mulholland Spring Company in 1881, this company evolved over the years building a full line of buggies, carriages, & road wagons advancing to automobile, truck & ambulance bodies. Around 1920 they branched out into diner manufacturing.

Musi Dining Car Company, Carteret, NJ, 1966 - present Formerly with Kullman Dining Car Company, Ralph Musi started his own company in 1966, building new diners in the Colonial and Mediterranean styles. Chubby’s Diner in Salisbury, Mass. is a local example of a Musi remodeling of a 1940 vintage O’Mahony car.

Jerry O’Mahony, Elizabeth, NJ, 1913 - 1956 Starting in 1913, in Bayonne, NJ, he was the leading manufacturer for decades. O’Mahony (like the Tierney outfit) gave many diner builders their start in the industry. Many classic diners from the 40’s and 50’s that survive to this day were built by O’Mahony.

Orleans Manufacturing Company, Albion, NY, 1947 - 1948 Orleans only built 3 diners, The Cadillac Diner of Westwood, NJ, the Arlington Diner of Haverhill, MA and Dauphin’s Superior Diner of Rochester, NY. Dauphin’s is still operating today as the Highland Park Diner on it’s original location.

Charles H. Palmer, Worcester, MA, 1889 - 1901 The first to receive a patent for his design for a night lunch wagon. Becoming one of the first early successful wagon builders, his enterprise was ended in 1901 when fire struck his factory in Sterling Junction, Massachusetts.

Paramount Diners, Oakland, NJ, 1932 - Present. Known for their stainless steel work on the interior, Paramount offered the all-stainless-steel exterior before anyone else, developed and patented the split-construction method now widely used in the modular building industry.

The Pollard Company, Lowell, MA, 1926 - 1927 Pollard built a handful of barrel-roofed diners. The Palace Diner of Biddeford, Maine and the Riverside Diner of Bristol, NH are the only two survivors from this manufacturer.

Rochester Grills, Rochester, NY, 1940 - ? There is scant information on this manufacturer which built diners in the same style as Bixler. At least one has survived, the Congress Street Diner of Bradford, Pennsylvania.

Silk City Diners, (Paterson Vehicle Company), Paterson, NJ, 1927 - 1964 The Paterson Vehicle Company was run by the Cooper family since 1886,began as wagon builders. They eventually made automobile, bus and truck bodies before starting to make “Silk City Diners” in 1927. Built as standard production units, six or eight at a time, in different color schemes, they were the lowest priced diner you could buy.

Sorge Diner Manufacturing Company, Silver Creek, NY, dates of operation unknown. Sorge Brothers was one of several companies that popped up in the Lake Erie region following the success of Ward & Dickinson.

Starlite Diners, Holly Hill, FL, 1992 - Present This new company offers a standard diner finished in mirror-finish stainless steel in 14 ft. by 76 ft. units that seat 52 people. They now also build custom units seating upwards of 150. Starlite has shipped diners all over the world and recently has been building Denny’s Classic Diners for the Denny’s Restaurant chain.

Sterling Diners, (J.B. Judkins Company), Merrimac, MA, 1936 - 1942 John B. Judkins Co. built carriages from 1857-1910, motorcar bodies from 1910-1936 and then entered the diner-building business. The most famous model Sterling built was the streamliner with one or both ends configured in a bullet shape.

Superior Dining Car Company, Berlin, NJ, 1950’s Superior was a diner-renovating company about which little is known.

Swingle Diners, Middlesex, NJ, 1957 - 1988 Previously in sales with Fodero and Jerry O’Mahony, Joseph Swingle began his own diner-building operation in August of 1957. In their 31 years of diner building, Swingle completed 147 units. The Victoria Diner still operating on Massachusetts Avenue in Boston’s South End is a Swingle Diner.

Patrick J. Tierney, New Rochelle, NY, 1905 - 1917 “Pop” Tierney operated lunch wagons from 1895 onward and began manufacturing them around 1905 in a small garage behind his house. After his death in 1917, his sons Edward & Edgar took over the business until 1927, renaming it P.J. Tierney Sons, Inc.

Valentine Manufacturing Company, Wichita, KS, 1938 - 1974 Mostly found in the mid-west and west, some units were shipped to the east coast. The most popular model was the “Little Chef”, an eight or

Do Eggs Get a Bad Rap?

As you can imagine, we serve up a lot of eggs here at the Dream Diner. We believe that eggs make a great part of a balanced breakfast, but some still consider this breakfast staple as a kind of guilty pleasure. We think that maybe the egg gets a bad rap, and this article in Diet Analytics bears us out. 

Eggs Aren't As Bad As They Are Cracked Up To Be

Eggs are often quickly dismissed for having high cholesterol levels. Despite their bad reputation, eggs are actually a nearly perfect food from both a convenience and health standpoint.
