This was the second diner in the Silver Diner empire, and the first of many to be built on site. It was put up in 1990. The old Rockville location, now sitting vacant, was their only “true” factory built location.
Just a little bit down the road is a great piece of neon, which, by the way, still works. Giant Food Grocery Store. It’s pretty great for a chain of this size to still keep around a little bit of their history.
