Best Diner Where You Can Smoke, Drink, Gamble, and Have Breakfast 24 Hours a Day

State Diner

2821 Wilkens Ave., (410) 947-2288

Posted 9/21/2005

Baltimore is full of smoky bars where you can piss away your paycheck on keno all day and all night long. Itís also full of odd little diners and package-goods stores where you can do the same thing during normal business hours. The State Diner combines the best of both worlds. Part package-goods store, part gambling parlor, part diner, State is open 24 hours and has a no-holds-barred approach to drinking and smoking and parting with your money on premises. Want a Camel and an Olde English with your omelet, hot cakes, and lottery tickets? Coming right up. All day, every day, 365 days a year.
