Now….this episode of All Things Ameri-cuh! I want to discuss American Diners in Madrid.
The one that comes to most people’s minds first is Peggy Sue’s.…in fact there is one right below my house.
I like to go there when I have a craving for some bacon cheese fries or a milkshake.
The food is good….not great, but still good. It’s a bit pricey compared to other locals that are similar.
Most people go to Peggy Sue’s for the ambiance and the atmosphere.
They have a ton of locations around Spain (although I remember when there were only 2 or 3 here in Madrid)
Here are some of the main locations here in Madrid (for other locations check out their web):
C/ Santa Cruz de Macenado Nº 13, Madrid
C/ Belén Nº 5, Madrid
C/ Menorca Nº 19, Madrid
C/ Jesús Nº 14, Madrid
You should definitely give it a try!!!
Another 1950’s Style American Diner in Madrid is TOMMY MEL’S!!!!
I think I prefer Tommy Mel’s. You get a lot more for your money than at Peggy Sue’s. And I’ve never had a problem with my order at Tommy Mel’s whereas at Peggy Sue’s they normally mess something up at least once everytime I go there. I think this has to do that Peggy Sue’s has decided to become a chain here in Spain and Tommy Mel’s is still quite exclusive with only 2 locations here in Madrid and 1 in Leon (don’t ask me why Leon and not a bigger city like Barcelona, I’m still not sure….but ,oh well. Good for the people of Leon!)
