Time Out says
Now spread as far north as New Jersey, Silver Diner has roots in Rockville, Maryland. It was founded as a single American diner by Chef Ype Von Hengst and Bob Giaimo in 1989, but it has since become a household name in the region. The menu has a featured chef-driven flexitarian section, which includes a local kale and blue cheese salad and wild-caught Carolina fried shrimp. They also boast locally-sourced ingredients. Of course, the basics are covered with breakfast fare, burgers and milkshakes. The vast selection should satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.
