Product Description

The Slang of Soda Jerks, Short-Order Cooks, Bartenders, Waitresses, Carhops and Other Denizens of Yesterday’s Roadside.

Originally published in 1941, this pocket-sized treasury preserves the language of diners and roadside restaurants during their golden age in the ’30s and ’40s. From “all hot” (baked potato) and “dog soup” (water) to “perk” (coffee) and “first lady” (spare ribs), the long-lost terms are fascinating, funny, and sometimes politically incorrect by today’s standards.
