The shows Guy Fieri said, “…I’d tell people to come for the skiing and stay for the food. When it comes to the mix of funky, eclectic places that we do, you guys are kicking some butt.” Guy loved the corned beef hash and dubbed it, “Money Hash.”

Eclectic Décor From a By-gone Era

While the Blue Plate Diner is known for outstanding food, the décor is part of the dining experience. It’s modeled after mom and pops diners of a by-gone era, and features an authentic soda fountain. This family-run diner invites local artists to hang their work on the walls amid the large collection of memorabilia.
