Went with the fam...back in the 80s it was a good place with great fast bfasts anytime- now it's a good price, but you get the food and service you pay for.

The mashed potatoes were fried mashed potatoes on the grill and black pieces of charrred food from the grill in them. The ribs were fatty and had some seasnoning I could not identify. I... More

Driven past this place hundreds of times but always seemed closed. That's because they are only open until 3pm. It was finally recommended to me by word of mouth and went there last December. Ever since then I have been back almost every week. The food is always excellent. I've tried most of their specials. And I'm not a breakfast... More

April 27th I stopped in for lunch, with a friend. We had the pork loin dinner with mashed potaoes. The potatoes that were served with the meal were soupy (not appetizing). I saw the owner a couple of days later and told her about the potatoes that were served, letting her know that they were not appetizing. When I stopped... More

As a Road Warrior, I look for local food establishments as I have found that they in general provide the best service and food quality as opposed to publicly know establishments . The South 30 Diner proved this beyond a doubt. that it is well worth ones' time to look for places such as this when traveling to various parts... More

Had their fresh sausage it was good. Glad we found it. Staff was very attentive but I can see how some may find it not friendly. Great prices .... More

My Husband and I went in with our little one for what we'd hoped to be a nice breakfast. We'd been here on occasion in the past, although nothing spectacular, it offered a decent breakfast, and is close to home. Service had never been their specialty, but after our most recent visit, we decided for all future diner breakfasts, we'd... More

We have been to the South 30 Diner several times - always good but not this time - service was slow - the waitress was too busy showing off her new tatoo - while the cook was showing people christmas center pieces. My husbands ham was deli style ham - not even warmed up and he was sick after he... More

We've never been disappointed when we've stopped in here, whether for breakfast or dinner...One waitress is outstanding both in attitude and service, the others generally appear to be miserable and very unhappy/.

We ate breakfast here after staying a the Super 8, right off the NY Thruway. This little place is nothing to look at from the outside but the food was fantastic and the people were really nice. The decor is like eating in someone's kitchen. They grow some of the vegetables right out back. The French Toast was great.
