I went here a couple of years ago when they were filming a section for “diners drive ins and dives”. I’m just in the background of a shot, I know in the TV version, but I don’t see myself in the youtube edit.
It’s a cool little Comac Dinette, probably the last of its kind, that was remodeled by Randy Garbin’s diner restoration company.
I ran across quite a few diner photos which I haven’t published- I’m going to try to work my way through them over the next couple of months.
I visited the Ace in 2006 with my father and Randy Garbin, of Roadside fame.
The diner is an extensively remodeled Silk City. One listing I have for it says it was built c. 1938, the other that it is from the ’40s.
Though it was remodeled extensively, which outwardly conceals its true nature, inside it is all diner.
The fresh baked bread at the Ace would alone be worth the stop.
