The Little Depot Diner in Peabody Has Closed

A North Shore diner that received national attention thanks to a popular TV show has closed its doors.

According to The Salem News, The Little Depot Diner in Peabody shut down this past Friday after being in business for more than 60 years. The article mentions that the folks behind the eatery are hoping that new owners can be found for the 1929 Worcester Lunch Car diner on Railroad Avenue, but for now, the spot is closed until further notice.

In November of 2009, Guy Fieri of the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" featured The Little Depot Diner on his show, focusing on such items as mulligatawny soup and Boston baked beans. The restaurant was one of a few that Fieri visited in the Boston area during that time period, including Sam LaGrassa's in Boston and Louie's Restaurant in Providence.

In addition to the items mentioned above, The Little Depot Diner also featured such items as French toast, pancakes, waffles, eggs benedict, corned beef hash, hamburgers, and hot dogs.

The address for this now-closed diner in Peabody was: The Little Depot Diner, 1 Railroad Avenue, Peabody, MA, 01960.
