After a long day of work, I found myself sitting in a room filled with families, seniors and rig workers all looking for a good meal. This was the first time I had gone to Diner on 93rd. I would actually say that it isn’t a diner, but isn’t quite fancy dining.
I often wondered if it would be a replacement for Uptown Grill, but I don’t think that is the case. Diner on 93rd definitely caters to the families and the groups for quick family meal. Prices range from $10-$20, Which is reasonable for a restaurant in Fort St. John. The menu wasn’t the biggest although it did seem to have the selection. There were things like pork tenderloin, shepherds pie, burgers and fries, steak and a small selection of pasta.
The menu being smaller than most left me actually stumped as to what I was going to order. I ended up deciding to go with the chicken linguine. Once we’d ordered which didn’t take very long, as the restaurant wasn’t that busy at that time, it only took about 15 min. for our meals to arrive. So let’s get into this chicken linguine.
They say chicken linguine, I say chicken Alfredo, either way it’s the same dish. I often find it’s really hard to make the chicken in the chicken linguini not so bland, it seems that the Diner on 93rd has the same dilemma, or maybe that’s just me. The meal is something that I could definitely cook myself, and I have before. I’m fairly certain that the creamy sauce or Alfredo sauce was just bought from the grocery store. I also found it slightly watery, which made eating it a slight challenge as I tend to get my meal everywhere. The garlic toast on the other hand was a little odd. The garlic toast was soggy and very thin. It was only garlic on one side and I don’t think it was actually toasted. Overall though I did enjoy the meal and was happy to not have to cook it myself.
For meal that was only $15, especially for supper was quite good. I don’t know how often I will return, but I do know I will be back at some point. They tell me the location used to be a Joey’s Seafood, which really shows when you’re inside the restaurant. It is a very similar atmosphere as well as food selection.
If you want a quick and relatively cheap meal for supper I suggest you go check out Diner 93rd. When you do leave me a comment, right here below.
