The Red Wing Diner in Walpole, Mass., first openeed in the 1930s and recently renovated
the rest of the restaurant with new flooring, tables and a
fresh-looking exterior after many years of staying with the old tile
floor/formica table look.
There's also an amazing sight at the Red Wing: a 1933
Worcester Dining Car that is embedded as a bar. Unlike
most other historic dining cars that have been totally renovated, this
one remains true to form with a ancient wooden counter and red stools,
barrel-shaped ceiling, old
tile floors and orange-stained glass around the barrel-shaped ceiling,
old tile floors and orange stained glass around the windows. The
main dining room is probably a more comfortable place to eat, but make
sure, regardless, to check out the old diner!

I absolutely love the classic, old school
suburban, Italian-American lunch and dinner selections in large
portions, quick efficient service, and great value. You won't find
better a better fried seafood platter, New England clam chowder,
carved-daily, fresh roast turkey with all the "fixins'", or lobster
rolls in the suburbs.

The heavy-on-the-cheese, loaded-with-toppings South Shore-style bar
pizza is a real winner, the tuna roll tasty and plentiful, and a Greek
salad transcends the generic house of pizza kind with mixed greens,
plenty of feta and a nice tasting Greek dressing. The waitresses
have personality, are quick on their feet, seem to have good peripheral
vision if you need their attention, and deliver your food in quick
fashion. Desserts are phenomenal, including blueberry and Boston Cream
pies, chocolate cake and some good tasting ice cream.
The Red Wing might seem older than Walpole -- which was incorporated as
a town in 1724 -- but that doesn't stop locals and Route 1 travelers
from experiencing this restaurant from another era. Good food in huge portions at low prices served by a nice staff is timeless, after all.
