Perhaps every community needs a greasy spoon. If so, then the upscale downtown Clayton area meets its requirement with the Clayton Diner. Not exactly the type of food you might expect around the intersection of Central Avenue and Forsyth Boulevard, this diner serves up breakfast, burgers and other diner fare in a friendly, retro atmosphere. With a few booths and counter seating available, Clayton Diner is a true diner. The breakfast menu features eggs, omelets, hotcakes, French toast, and biscuits and gravy. Daily lunch specials include rotisserie chicken, beef tips in gravy and a catfish sandwich. Burgers and hot dogs are also available, including large offerings and smaller, "buck" versions available for 99 cents. And of course, what diner would be complete without a slinger, made here with two burger patties, cheese, hash browns and an egg all covered in chili.
