The Dream Diner first opened in 1997, finally realizing our dream of spreading a the fine tradition of the great American diner into the Tyngsboro community. With a lifetime of experience working in the family diner business at the Four Sister’s Owl Diner, we wanted to continue with the winning formula of featuring great food served in healthy portions at reasonable prices in a clean, friendly atmosphere.
After a long-time search for the right facility and location, we purchased and renovated a former doughnut shop on the Middlesex Turnpike, creating an atmosphere for our customers that evokes a less complicated time, when the diner ruled the roadside and the food it served was big, tasty, and reasonably priced.
In 2002, we celebrated our fifth anniversary in Tyngsboro. In that time, we’ve been cited in several articles and reviews for our fine food and service. In 2000, Roadside Magazine described us as one of their top ten breakfast spots and the “Phantom Gourmet” deemed us a “Hidden Jewel.” According to the Phantom, “Everything is made fresh, with a lot of care and a little extra love. It’s a recipe that’s hard to find now that Route 66 is not much more than a memory. But there are a few places where the spirit of the Fifties is alive and well, like at the Dream Diner”
We are now celebrating 20 years in business with some big changes to our diner — including our expansion into an authentic diner that nearly doubles the size of our restaurant. All year long, customers will enjoy events and specials to show our gratitude for their continued loyalty.
We look forward to many more years of serving the area with a sense of pride and devotion to quality. Ours is a diner that measures our success by how many customers we know by name. So, consider yourself invited to send us your feedback and to become a part of the Dream Diner community.
