Service was great. Food was good and inexpensive. While there by myself eating I met the cook, waitress and 2 patrons. It is a very friendly place. Outta the way place unique in its decor. A must stop if you are in the area.

The eggs were undercooked, not seasoned at all and a terrible texture. The toast was totally burned. When I told this to the waitress she sadi "well why... More

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

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.
