I've eaten many times at the Tom Sawyer Diner in Paramus, NJ.  It's a good diner, but last time I asked around while there, no one working for it had read Tom Sawyer.  Some didn't seem to have an idea who he even was!   Steve

Odd question for the group. What diners and restaurants are you familiar
with that build their branding around Twain and/or his characters? Some
examples include Huck Finn's Donuts in Chicagoland, Tom Sawyer's in Boca
Raton, and Aunt Polly's Pizza in Indianapolis.

Interested in both currently operating and defunct establishments.

If you happen to know what year it opened, please include that as well.
