Silver Diner

There is something special about a diner; from nostalgic tabletop jukeboxes to comfortable booths to the friendly people. It is the heart of Silver Diner.

So when my partner, Chef Ype Von Hengst, and I wanted to start an American family restaurant that bridges the gap between tablecloth restaurants and fast food, the diner was the perfect answer. We spent a year visiting over 500 diners across America seeking to understand the timeless appeal of this American icon. Diners are known for their unique architecture and generous helpings of food, but the

Love is in the air at Silver Diner! Earlier this month, we asked our guests about how their relationship blossomed with an experience at Silver Diner.

To celebrate Valentine's Day, here are few of our favorite submissions:

My husband and I had our first date at the Silver Diner in Reston, VA. It was also on Valentine’s Day 2019. We had a really great time. It was my first time going to a Silver Diner because I just moved to this area. I was really nervous but the restaurant’s vibe made me feel comfortable. I loved the food and our conversation. It’s a perfect place for a date. I still have the photo of our meal. We got married in 2021 and had a baby boy last July. Fun fact: my husband’s oldest brother had his first date with his wife at Silver Diner over 20 years ago, but that happens to be a coincidence because Emilio didn’t know until after we had already gone on our date.

Sam and I met on Twitter years ago, but during the pandemic we became a lot closer. In February of 2022, we decided to finally meet in person, so I flew in from Ann Arbor, MI to Arlington, VA. The first meal we ever shared together was at Silver Diner Arlington after our nephew's hockey game. Long story short, I moved to Virginia (we of course celebrated the move with brunch at Silver Diner!) and we got married in October 2023! Silver Diner is now our go-to for weekend brunch with family or, more importantly, a random Tuesday date night, and always reminds us of how our lives first merged. It holds a special place in our hearts (as do the sweet potato fries!)

- Sarah, Alexandria Silver Diner

Mid winter of 2022 my boyfriend and I were looking for new diners to try since we decided diners would be our thing at 20 years old. One night after both of our long shifts at work, we found out Silver Diner and decided to try it. It was one of the absolute best diners we have ever tried. My boyfriend absolutely loved there cheesesteaks and we NEVER not get loaded fries!! Most places would make me feel very sick after eating but never Silver Diner! We have been to this same one in cherry hill countless of times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner or even late night snack. It’s the first place my boyfriend told me enjoyed my company a lot, wanted me around even more, and told me, he told all of his friends about me. I It’s also the first place that played our song “sugar sugar” every time we were there the first few months we were “talking.” Silver was the place we decided it was our song for sure. We met amazing waiters, we always have a good time with the vibe in the building, and never leave without our stomachs full. We never not get the loaded cheese fries, a cheesesteak, and enjoy an occasional watermelon mint lemonade. We always make up stories of coming back here the night we get married and get our same order, or come back in 40-50 years and share fries like we did on one of our first dates. Silver Diner will always be my boyfriend and I go to spot. I’m so happy to have so many great memories here with him.

- Jaycee, Cherry Hill Silver Diner

My boyfriend (who wasn’t my boyfriend yet at the time) and I were just friends until one random night, I asked him out to dinner at Silver Diner. It’s one of my favorite late night spots. We sat in a big booth in back and by the end of that night, we both somehow fell in love with each other. We love going to Silver Diner to this day. It’s definitely a special place for us.

Please join us in congratulating two very special Springfield team family members, Milagros ‘Mila’ Dunn and Antwon Barret Knight for certifying as FOH Trainers! Our first certified trainers of 2024!

Mila has been a dedicated team member since October of 2002, 20 years! Mila has always shown dedication on her role as a Soda. Last year however, encouraged by her team, she decided to take on the challenge to not only attend the TTT class in the spring, but also decided to help in two major store openings, National Harbor and South Riding.

Through both openings Mila surprised everyone as she really stepped out of her comfort zone and displayed confidence in teaching and coaching new associates, training well over 40 total new Soda’s, Bussers and Dishwashers combined Mila has truly exemplified excellence trough training and consistent delivery of our standards.

Antwon's career path began at McDonald's, where he evolved into a trainer and supervisor. In 2019, he found his professional home at Silver Diner, joining the Springfield team that February. 5 years have passed, and Antwon remains dedicated to learning and growing within the company.

Juggling various roles and being responsible comes naturally to Antwon, being the oldest among nine siblings and a key member of the HUH (Howard University Hospital) Tag Team. Now, as part of Silver Diner's Leadership Team, he embraces his responsibilities with passion. Antwon's love for his work and balance can be seen in his eagerness to coach and share his expertise, both in the field and at the restaurant.

Both Mila and Antwon showcase remarkable commitment to their team and new team members, their exceptional efforts have significantly contributed to the success of their team’s growth in leaders, both have helped display our company’s mission of growth.

Thank you, Ely and Springfield team, for working with Mila and Antown and strengthening our brand mission of Being the Best We Can Be!
