I was going to title this "Where everybody knows your name". but that would suggest that newcomers aren't welcome. If you want to have a great 1940's diner experience, visit Ruffuls. Pick a booth or the counter and order up a Rufful burger, delicious fries, and a cabinet ( a milkshake to non-Rhode Islanders). Friday fish and chips can't be beat. Order breakfast any time they're open. Primarily a breakfast and lunch place, but they do serve dinner on Fridays (maybe Saturdays too?)
