If it's good enough for Tom Hanks then it's good enough for me Sat, 08/18/12 2:21 PM (permalink)
I knew the place was something special when I wrote the review a while back.
 
Here is my review of TNT's Diner in West Fargo ND.

and here is a write up of a recent celebrity visit.

    I totally reject the idea that Tom Hanks is a bigger celebrity than our own wanderingjew.

      Wow, Tom Hanks reads roadfood. Saw the story on Yahoo.

        Maybe.  Or maybe it was the jet company pilots who gave the recommendation:
        "Tammy Hagensen says she got a call Thursday evening from a jet company that often sends their pilots to TNT's Diner in West Fargo.  A company official asked if she would open early Friday for a special guest whose name could not be revealed right away."
         
        Either way, it was nice for TNT's Diner.

          I always wondered if there are any celebrities out there that follow Roadfood

          Or perhaps Tom Hanks  wanted to go there and asked the Jet Company to make the arrangements

            No doubt that Mr. Hanks would be a Roadfood kind of guy.  But, I was much more excited to read that Scarlet Johansson is, too.  She could possibly be as big a celebrity as WJ, but I doubt it!

              I don't know why anyone would much care about Hank's opinion on anything.  He 's done some good acting, but that's about it.

                Hanks has done quite a bit of charity work for returning Wounded Servicemen from the Middle East as well as:

                    Big deal!  This is a guy who used to wear dresses.  Doesn't make him a food expert.

                      Always seems like a nice guy. Been married to his second wife for almost 25 years. Looks like someone who likes to eat.

                        Good for TNT's Diner!  I hope the exposure bring them lots of business.  
                         
                        Dale's review is enough to make me want to go there  Has anyone tried their breakfast?
