At times, it may seem that there's but one diner on Long Island -- one that was somehow cloned and distributed throughout Nassau and Suffolk. How else to explain all the glitzy exteriors, 10-page menus and glass showcases of decadent desserts?

From a vintage railroad car to a streamlined new double decker, we give you these diners with style, taste, individuality and, in some cases, history, all selected by restaurant critic Joan Reminick.
