This was a bad experience. We went on Friday night to aspen landing location, it was busy but not frantic.. Was seated in just a couple of minutes. We waited over an hour for our food. Burger was dry and lukewarm, fries were tasteless and fish and chips bland. Just before serving us, the waitress came to say, "'sorry for... More

This was the second trip to the Aspen location. We had always enjoyed the cozy space and menu of the Edmonton Trail location, so we were thrilled to see the Aspen location open as it is close to our home. First visit was good, the food and service acceptable. On the second visit, the service was non-existent, and food was... More

It was a lot of fun eating there and there seemed to be a buzz in the air. Food was great and I would go back again - there was some choices for vegetarians and I was happy for that.

I sent my breakfast back twice and both times my eggs were over cooked, cold hash browns. Server did the best she could but service overall poor. We waited over half hour for our breakfast to be served!!

Went to the Aspen location. They need to hire more servers. They were working hard but there were not enough of them and service was slow. Food was so-so. My wife's macaroni was good. My ribs were bland and overcooked. They also served the gristly part instead of a better cut. Will not be going back anytime soon.

The food is great but because it's super small, you're kind of crammed up next to the other table...and it can get quite loud. Try the breakfast poutine, you won't be disappointed.

You do not come to this eatery for the decor or location and you certainly do not have to get dressed up for this dining experience! The atmosphere in this restaurant is ultra casual and the decor is very retro from the fifties. We felt that the entire facility could really use a face lift (fresh paint and some newer... More

I've never been to Diner Deluxe without waiting in a line... and I work down the street. However, this is because it's easily the best modern comfort food in the city. A loooong time favourite of mine, the breakfast Poutine (hash browns with housemade dill hollandaise and mozzarella) will forever hold the top spot for 'Best Side' of ANY side... More

I had the pull pork hash and it's beyond this world. The price are reasonable and the service is very friendly. On the down side they're victims of their success. Elbow room is limited and there's always a lineup at the door.
