The Auburn Diner is a 1920s vintage model built by the Bixler Company, a premier diner car manufacturer. According to diner historian Daniel Zilka, only ten such Bixlers are still in existence. The Auburn Diner was brought by rail to its original site in the 1930s by proprietor Timothy Flood. The painted signs on the buildings exterior advertised a standard diner tradition --- customary all night service.

Damaged by fire in 1994, the Auburn Diner stopped serving meals. In October 2000, the abandoned diner was moved to an old railroad bed on Columbus Street.

Even in the face of adversity, somehow life goes on. In May 2001 Steve and Toni Bianco purchased the diner and the land it now sits on from the Cayuga County Industrial Development Authority. On January 20, 2003, the completely renovated Auburn Diner opened its doors. The favorite menu item appears to be the "diner burger". In the summer months the Biancos will be serving ice cream from their ice cream stand.
