The Tilt'n Diner serves four star food in a diner car setting

By Eric H.


The Tilt'n Diner is a four star caliber restaurant in a 1950s diner car setting. What a great combination!

Try the homemade turkey dinner with all the "fixin's" and you'll wonder why you spent twice the amount in some overrated urban restaurant. Sample the tangy and ample macaroni and cheese and you'll understand how phony the market brands are. Taste the seafood chowder and wonder if Rand McNally possibly made a mistake and that the Town of Tilton is actually on the Maine seacoast.

Other standout dishes include the wonderful homemade meatloaf dinner, a high end restaurant caliber caesar salad, a flavorful and abundant tuna melt and, as a side, perfectly formed french fries.

The Tilt'n Diner serves breakfast, lunch and dinner under lots of neon within two dining rooms and the classic diner car-- all set to the background music of the Elvis Presley, the Coasters, Five Satins, Buddy Holly and other 1950s stars. It is the "feel good" restaurant of New England, enhanced by a friendly, sometimes wisecracking waitstaff and absolutely marvelous food.

Top off your meal with some delicious blueberry pie, moist carrot cake or a sinful mud pie and you'll leave the Tilt'n Diner wishing that they would franchise into every community in the United States. They haven't franchised, however, so the next time you're in a 50 mile radius of Tilton, make sure you experience the Tilton Diner. It is indeed a true gem.
