Because diners are not parts of chains and do not rent in malls. Diners are stand alone structures modeled on train dining car like the Trolley Car diner on Germantown Ave or Minella's in Wayne. Diners do not have any specific motifs and tend toward an unremarkable decor.

Sam's is far better. I do like Ruby's for the kids but as far as food quality goes Sam's is number 1.

Sam's Grill is an LM institution! Food is predictable and service is excellent particularly on weekends. Never a parking hastle either

Unless you can get breakfast all day it's not a diner.
