  London Photos... photography gallery of London Life and other photos: Baker Street Greasy Spoon
Elderly ladies enjoy a chip and a chat at one of the greasy spoons on Baker Street.
For the uninitiated: This is not the height of British cuisine by any means but it's certainly filling and satisfying enough when you're craving carbohydrates.
Greasy spoons also cater for us vegetarians - baked potatos, chips, veggie burgers, baked beans and bagels.

 Greasy spoon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name "greasy spoon" is used to imply a less than rigorous approach to hygiene and dishwashing, and appears to date from 1925.
The typical greasy spoon serves mainly fried or grilled food, for example: fried eggs, chips, bacon, fl pudding, bubble and squeak, burgers, sausages and mushrooms.
In America, greasy spoons have a somewhat better reputation than the British, with menus associated with comfort food and Southern cooking — foods which are considered desirable but unhealthy due to high fat content (made higher by the fattier, more inexpensive cuts of meat often served).

Spoon is a medium-volume list, averaging 15 to 20 messages per day.
Everything here is a corollary of what we said earlier: "Spoon is a place for stories." I hate to define the Spoon in negative terms, but we'll all probably benefit from directness.

Greasy Spoons are more than just a place to get food; like any restaurant, they are their own societies, they offer warmth and community to their regulars.
In terms of style, the Greasy Spoon is a unique entry in the vast and varied catalogue of restaurant types, a form that is immediately understood, democratizing and often enough an outrageously good show.
Crossroads doesn't qualify as a greasy spoon: the place is spotlessly clean, even the men's room; the cooks are too careful, and the spoor of an avid decorator-in-residence is strong.

Greasy spoons fight for survival against cappuccino culture
The traditional greasy spoon is to mount a fight-back today against the cappuccino culture of Continental-style coffee shops, amid fears that the institution could disappear.
A campaign to save the unpretentious caff, where fry-ups and dark tea still hold sway over croissants and vanilla lattes, is being launched following research that suggests it could be squeezed out of the high street by the end of the decade.

"A greasy spoon is a colloquial term for a downmarket cafeteria or restaurant.
Greasy spoons are (in televisual and movie culture) invariably the rendezvous of choice of villains on the brink of pulling a major multi-million pound heist and frequent locations for situation comedy.

AUGUST 11--Already saddled with whiny employees, lousy reviews, and comparisons to the Olive Garden, the New York eatery featured in NBC's "The Restaurant" was slapped with six health code violations following an inspection last week, The Smoking Gun has learned.
Rocco's, chef Rocco DiSpirito's chaotic Italian-American joint, was cited on July 29 for the "evidence of live flies" in the kitchen prep area and for keeping two large metal spoons stored in a "container of greasy stagnant water." That's right, Rocco's was nailed for a greasy spoon violation.
The restaurant was also cited for having three "moist wiping" cloths "soiled with old food particles and not stored in sanitizing solution." Another violation resulted from an "employee toilet facility" that was not equipped with the required "self-closing door."
