It Started In The Backyard
Our specialty hamburgers began in Duane and Mary Miller’s backyard. They often enjoyed having family and friends over to sample their sizzling hamburgers and fall-off-the-bone chicken wings. People frequently commented on how good the food was and encouraged Duane and Mary to start their own restaurant. In 2017 a space became available in a local shop in downtown Berlin, Ohio. This was just the nudge Duane and Mary needed to startup their dream diner serving their homestyle hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken wings.
FUN FACTThe History of Du's Burger
The story behind our specialty Du’s burger takes us back to Duane’s outdoor grill. There was a sweet little girl who enjoyed Duane’s savory burgers but couldn’t pronounce his name very well. Instead of saying “Duane” she would say “Du.” The nickname stuck ever since and now we proudly serve Du’s Burger as one of our specialties!
Local Ingredients Prepared Fresh Daily
Our ingredients come from local sources and are prepared fresh daily. Our meat is raised locally without any hormones. We also refrigerate our hamburger meat instead of freezing it which means your burger will taste fresh every time!
The Passion Lives On
Today Duane and Mary enjoy serving people in their diner just like they did in their own backyard. When you come to Plain & Simple Diner you will enjoy the down-home atmosphere full of good homestyle grilling and cooking. You might even hear Duane announce behind the grill “Order up!”
