- "The best food this side of the Senate District!"
- ―Advertisement for Dex's Diner
Serving mostly hard workers from the area, the diner offered home-style cooked meals and freshly brewed ardees ("Jawa Juice"). Jettster worked as the cook and employed two waitresses, Hermione Bagwa and her WA-7 waitress droid partner, FLO. Other offerings at Dex's Diner included the Shawda club sandwich for 6.7 credits, served on toasted or therm-zapped bread, the Sic-Six-layer cake, which was one of his most popular desserts, served by the slice at 2.5 credits and the Photon Fizzle at 1.7 credits. Credit chips were accepted at Dex's Diner.
As a result of Dex's welcoming nature and belief that he shouldn't intrude into the private affairs of his customers, Dex's Diner was a frequent meeting spot for criminals.
Shortly before the Clone Wars, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi came to Dex's Diner to see if his old friend, Jettster, could identify a poisoned dart. Jettster was able to identify it as originating from the planet Kamino which he knew of from his days as a prospector.
Behind the scenes
A restaurant on Coruscant in the novel, The High Republic: Into the Dark, is described as having the same characteristics as Dex's Diner, such as being "a place with checkered floors, shiny red seats, and waiter droids that rolled around on impractical wheels". However it is not explicitly stated that these restaurants are one in the same.
