Besides all the entertaining shows and performances on Broadway in Manhattan, there are so many diners and restaurants where you can eat. One of my favorites is Ellen's Stardust Diner. It is the perfect combination of family-friendly performances and delicious food.

While you are dining with your family, you're entertained by live performers. The waiters and waitresses are all actors. The diner has a menu filled with amazing foods, but it's most known for its awesome shakes and hamburgers.

The staff is friendly, and the line to get in is often out the door. In the center of the diner there are televisions that

display your tweets. They are called Twitter TVs, and when you tweet mentioning the Stardust Diner, it shows up on the screen.
