Haven Brothers Diner on the TODAY Show-4/8/08 Tue, 04/8/08 7:47 AM (permalink)
I was just taking a break at work and walked over to the TODAY Show in NYC and saw the Haven Brothers Diner from Providence, RI (home of the Murderburger)truck on the set and there were people inside and it looked like they were cookin'! Set your VCRs (Tivos or such devices). The show runs from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, I believe.

    I wish I had seen it. I'm not a particularly big fan of the place, but I always enjoy seeing Roadfood places get some publicity. Aren't they usually long gone by 7:00AM?

      Nope, the show ends at 9:00am and it looked like they were prepping in the Diner for a segment that hadn't come up yet.

      If you Google Haven Brothers Diner Today Show, have a look at the link re: Linda Hawkins Photography in Rhode Island. She was contacted by the TODAY Show and asked if they could use some of her stills of the diner for a segment airing on 4/8/08.

        Thanks for the info. I just finished watching it. Great dogs, shakes and burgers. It is a diner on wheels that sets up daily in Providence and they wheeled it down into Manhattan for the show. It is the first time it has left Providence ever. It looks like every day they wheel it into place, and plug into the electriciy at a stop light, pull down a staircase, and they are in business. Everyone in Providence knows about it.

          I went to college in RI and Haven Bros was a regular stop on the weekends. It was open from 5 PM to 5 AM every night. I can't believe they took it out of state!

            Thanks for the "heads up", billyboy. What a cool diner.

            Here is Michael Stern's review with photos, for those who missed the show:

              Billy, we logbooked Haven Bros. last year, and the cook told me that only RFers, not locals, use the term "murderburger." That's how he knew I was an out-of-towner! Chris

                The diner is certainly steeped in history, however I found the food served there to be quite ordinary.
