|Headquarters||Roscoe, New York, U.S.|
The Roscoe Diner, located in the hamlet of Roscoe in Sullivan County, New York is a frequent stopping point for those traveling Route 17 between New York City and Western New York. The one-story diner with flagstone exterior is just off the Roscoe/Lew Beach exit (exit 94). It is a popular spot both for students heading to and from colleges in New York State and for flyfishermen as well as locals.
The Roscoe Diner was built in 1962 or 1964 and is considered to be one of the busiest and most well known restaurants along Route 17. Although Roscoe is a small town with a population of less than 600 at the time of the 2000 census, the diner served anywhere between several hundred and a thousand meals each day at its peak, leading the diner to declare itself "World Famous."
The diner's signature item is its French Toast, featuring slabs of bread that are 1.5" thick. Breakfast is served all day, and meals are served on Syracuse China. Pennants from colleges in New York and across the northeast region decorate the walls.
The diner's parking lot also features a Tesla electric car charging station, which is both a rarity in the area and a sign of the diner's eye on the future.
