Walking in, you're greeted by light, airy surroundings, cozy booths, powder blue accents, natural materials, etc., etc. It's retro without being chintzy, and homey without being homely.
Sit down at a booth and choose from a variety of snacks: deviled eggs ($5), calamari ($9), spoon bread ($7), pork belly ($8)... Wait. Hold the phone – pork belly? Yeah, not your average divey-diner (Diver? I call dibs on that word, btw.).
Moving on to entrees. Interstate does not skimp on portions, though with the quality of their food, they very well could. Take as evidence the open-faced pastrami sandwich ($9) below, served with thick cut potatoes and cole-slaw. Forgive the sub-standard picture. This meal was eaten with several people who don't see it as second nature to take multiple pictures of everything they eat before they eat it. This shot was taken hastily and surreptitiously.
