This is a classic diner in the middle of Uptown Athens. I try to eat breakfast here at least once every time I'm in Athens. The food is delicious, service is fast and friendly. I love the atmosphere, both inside and out. They also have some of the best milkshakes I've ever had! The prices are very reasonable, and the... More

Loved the atmosphere. The railcar 50's diner feel was fun. The server was nice but not overly attentive. The food was average diner fare but the chicken was rubbery. I believe it had been microwaved probably more than once. I seriously could not bite through it and it had the texture of gristle. To their credit, I complained and they... More

Casa was packed on a Sunday morn so we walked up to the diner. Huevos locos, excellent; eggs benedict, very good; frittata, terrific. My kid scarfed down his kid meal pancakes and ordered a second batch. You might think about getting the adult cakes. The hash browns are like I like them--crispy. Atmosphere is retro. Unfortunately they were short staffed... More

My favorite lunch entree is the Alaskan Cod Wrap for around $8.50. It is a very generous portion and tastes quite good. Comes with fries or chips and salsa. I always add Tartar Sauce. Laura is an outstanding server rivaling the best I've ever met in any restaurant. Parking on street at a meter or across the street at a... More

Laura, our server, was very polite, knowledgable and helpful. The food was good. What we had was obviously prepared on site. I had the Loaded Veggie Omelet and a bowl of chili. The food was good , and the ambiance added to the effect. All in all, it was a very pleasant dining experience.

Classic diner nestled uptown from Ohio University. We went for breakfast on Sunday morning. A lot of people also went that morning, but the wait was reasonable, the service was good. Food and atmosphere was. . .classic!

We try to have breakfast at the diner whenever we are in Athens. The cinnamon rolls are fabulous. The traditional breakfasts are also good. My son ordered a milkshake, yes for breakfast, and when I joked about it, the waitress acted as though it was the most normal thing ever. Friendly service.

The diner was really busy.....but worth the wait. Our waitress was awesome. Her name is Laura. She made our lunchtime a real treat. Awesome burgers and to die for milkshakes, made with real ice cream.

Love the potato soup and the club sandwich. The hamburger and fries are good too. They also play music from pandora inside the dinner which sounds great.
