Ed’sEasy Diner is a welcome addition to the otherwise bleak Euston station eateries. With jukeboxes on tables, an open kitchen with dinning bar, booths and a team of waiters delivering fast food whilst rocking to Jerry Lee Lewis it’s like stepping into a 1950’s American Diner.
There are a few things we’ve learnt from coming to places like these: 1. Make sure you’re hungry 2. Pace yourself 3. Wear loose pants. Ed’s does classic American diner food; burgers, hot dogs, chicken and combo platters, you name it, they got it. We opted for the Cheese or Cheese Burger (choose from Chedder or Emmental) and the Blues Burger, Ed’s in-house favourite and you guessed it, covered in Blue cheese. Both burgers we’re packed into a sesame seed bun along with onion, tomato, lettuce, dill pickle and mayonnaise.
For sides we chose Chilly Cheese Fries; covered in mountains of cheese and chilly, Onion Rings and a selection of all the dips; cheese, chilli, guacamole, sour cream and our favourite, jalapeno jelly. Whilst the grub maybe decent we’re not gonna lie it’s the shakes which makes Ed’s a winner, served in a tall silver shaker each one contains two servings and are thick, rich ice-cream shakes which take some straw sucking. We’d recommend adding Malt to make it even thicker – try the straight chocolate or banana and peanut butter!
Ed’s is an all rounder, first date, late dates, family trip, quick sip, quick bite, slow night. Good food, brilliant shakes, amazing music, friendly staff and reasonable prices – better than you’re usually train station restaurant, that’s for sure!
Also worth mentioning is the Combo Plates which come at around £9 and include burger/dog of your choice, fries, onion rings and slaw – bargain.
