“oldest diner in florida”

"If you love diners, you owe it to yourself to visit Angel's, which boasts that it is Florida's first, established in 1932. We came for breakfast, so we never got to try the hand-pattied hamburgers and freshly made (not frozen) onion rings, which appear to be the menu's highlights, with burgers that range up to one-pounders ("for real men only," says the menu). Next time, it will be for burgers, o-rings, and skin-on French fries.  Breakfast was OK, but nothing special. The waitress assured us that the biscuits were freshly made, and ours was indeed warm. But from scratch? Not likely. Pancakes were fine, as was the bacon – cooked crisp, as requested. The highlight of our brief encounter was the mysteriously named house drink, a Pusalow, which is chocolate milk, vanilla syrup, and crushed ice.  It's the place itself we found most attractive. Retaining its cramped interior with a few tight booths and counter with a view of the grill, it seems scarcely to have changed in its decades of service. Fellow breakfasters when we stopped by early in the morning included a table full of law officers and several singles – some starting their day, others finishing a long night. (Angel's never closes.)" --http://roadfood.com/Restaurant/Review/6413-6590/angels-diner

My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way to the beach on Memorial Day weekend. The place was easy to find, as it's right off the highway. We arrived mid afternoon. The place was packed. There was not a booth or place at the counter that wasn't occupied. There isn't a lot of space inside anyway. They have picnic tables outside under a a shaded carport. We opted to sit outside rather than wait for a booth inside.
The food is typical diner food; burgers, fries, onion rings, grilled cheese sandwiches. It took a while for our food to be brought out on account of it being so busy. I opted to have the cheeseburger plate that came with fries and homemade onion rings. The burger was really good and the onion rings were hot and super crispy.

The waitstaff was super friendly.
