Order Up: Digging into northern Michigan's diners
Most towns Up North have a local diner – that place everyone knows, where you can get a simple meal and a strong cup of coffee at a reasonable price.
But diners are more than just a place to eat. Diners are places where the history of a town slowly unfolds over generations of conversations, and thousands of servings of chicken-fried steak.
In a local diner, you can catch up with an old friend and soak in some of the character of a small town.
That's what IPR News intends to do this summer as we visit diners all over northern Michigan. We'll be bringing you their stories in this series, "Order Up: Digging into northern Michigan's diners."
