Team RWB to help Lincoln students explore

A diner to like

ANNOUNCER: Classic diners aren't so easy to find in large towns anymore.  You know, the kind that have that small town feel, the classic recipes, and wait staff that call you "hon" and "darling."  The Martin Way Diner is such a place, in fact, I don't think they've remodeled for
