21st August 2012
Businesses and customers visiting the Leyland Trading Estate in Wellingborough can take a step back in time to the 1950s says commercial property agent Prop-Search by visiting an American style diner on the site.
AJ’s Diner is a family owned and run business situated within the Nene Valley Motorcycle Centre at Unit 141. It opens at 08:00 every day and serves a range of hot and cold drinks, and American inspired food including 100% pure beef burgers cooked stateside style, chicken burgers and hot dogs. The Diner boasts authentically dressed waitresses providing a full table service and American desserts such as key lime pie, banoffee pie and pancakes.
Bill Hunt, proprietor of AJ’s Diner, said: “The concept of the diner came from my love of the 1950’s, America, motorcycles and rock and roll. My family has a long history in the restaurant trade and the name is derived from, and in honour of my parents who opened the first family restaurant ‘AJ’s Diner’ in Aberdare in the late 1980’s.”
He adds: “We have recently launched a Breakfast Challenge, known as the B52 Breakfast Bomber. This comprises of a plate of 52 items which must be consumed within 26 minutes - win and the food is free, lose and your wallet will be £21.50 lighter. A few brave souls have tried this challenge but as yet no-one has beaten the B52 and made it onto the wall of fame.”
