These days, the closest most people will get to eating in a train diner car is going to Mickey's Diner in the heart of downtown St. Paul. It's a perfect environment for a meal to take you back in time. The grill is mere feet away from the seats at the counter, so you can watch the always-busy cooks making your meal as you watch. The burgers themselves are classic Americana, fresh patties served plain, or with cheese, bacon, and/or California style (lettuce, tomato, and mayo). To really get the full Mickey's experience, try the Patty Melt, which finds the cheeseburger served with fried onions on whole wheat bread, creating a delightful merger of the grilled-cheese sandwich and the burger. The sides are also an attraction here, as you have your choice of baked beans, cole slaw, fries, or Mickey's famous hash browns, with just enough grease to add flavor and a perfect mix of crispy outsides and tender middles. And it's almost impossible to resist Mickey's famous mulligan stew, made from the same pre-WWII recipe as always.
