The first diner on Route 1 sits on the US side of the US/Canada border in Fort Kent, Maine. This beloved diner has had its roots deep in the community since 1945. What started out as a hot dog stand has grown into a full-service restaurant seven days a week. Not just for the local community, Rock’s feeds thousands of people, from catering events at the Fort Kent Outdoor Center to the spectators of the Can-Am Crown Sled Dog Race the first weekend in March.
With the notably Mainer Can-Do attitude, owners Sandra and Peter Pinette took the COVID shutdown in stride. Instead of closing, they started providing take-out family meals, packaged and ready to heat and serve food. During this time, their famous whoopie pies became world-famous, and they started selling them online.
Located directly across from America’s First Mile, this is one diner you just have to visit.
