    Unlock message:

    "Sticky vinyl booths, bottomless mugs of joe, apple pie fresh out of the display case… Does that waitress have syrup on her hairnet? Sounds like diner heaven to us. Now that you've hit 5, treat yourself to onion rings. Or a milkshake. We suggest both."

    Just like to know if 5 check-ins in one venue will unlock this badge or if it requires five different ones. Thanks!
  • JR1JR1 October 2011
    @Kltpzyxm Have not tested that yet. But when I unlocked the badge it was while checking into a "diner" for the 2nd time. The only thing would be that the checkins would have to be on 5 diffrent days and not all in one day. If you want to give that a try let us know, if not and you want to wait a few days I can test it out and let you know.

    Thanks @JR1. 2 hours ago was my 5th check in on the same venue categorized as diner but the badge didn't unlock. As I reviewed all my check ins, the very first check in I made to this venue was already 4 months ago and the remaining 4 (including my check in today) were still in 2 months time. So I'm wondering if the badge requires different venue. Curious, I opened foursquare mobile and tried searching for 4 more different venues. I made test check ins, and voila! The badge unlocks on the last venue!

    I therefore conclude that the badge requires 5 different venues and can be unlocked in a single day.

    I have made like hundreds of check ins in different kinds of diners all around the world but still did not get this badge. I have got the herbivore, bento and hot tamale badges, though. Is this badge retired?

    @mesedo I just got this badge with 3 checkins on a test account. It is definitely still active.

    Thank you Beerknurd for the clarification, I think I am doing something wrong, I have lots of check ins for different kinds of restaurants, but I think I have to find "diner" ones in my language :) I do not use English foursquare, that might be the thing..
