    I'm not sure how widespread they are, but Perkins is a chain diner-type restaurant that I had associated mostly with the MidWest, only there was one next to the hotel we stayed at in Pennsylvania. I had only been in a Perkins restaurant once or twice before because we didn't have them near us when I lived in Michigan.

    Anyhow, I could eat three meals a day in a Perkins restaurant for a month and not order the same thing twice, I think. The menu was very large, the prices were great, and the food was terrific.

    My only complaint was that it took quite a while to get anyone's attention when we were ready to leave, because our waitress hadn't left us a ticket. However, they were very busy.

    I give Perkins a big thumbs up.

    We had Perkins out in Washington State, too. There were several that I can remember. I think Spokane had two of them, and when we drove from Spokane to Seattle, weoften stopped for gas and always stopped where there was also a Perkins. I think there was one in Ritzville, one in Ellensburg, and also in the Seattle area, although I can’t remember exactly where we used to stop over there.
    Perkins always had great food, good service, and the prices were reasonable, and they kept your coffee cup full.

    The food is still good but the wait is still horrible.

    When I lived in Pennsylvania, it was the hang-out for the "old folks". I guess they didn't mind the wait since they had nothing else to do, but now that I am one of the Old folks, I haven't been there for a while.
