Excellent value

We were driving through Arizona and decided to stop here for lunch. We had the sourdough burger and the bacon cheddar burger. Both tasted great and came with a huge plate of fries. The food was a great value and was very filling. We will definitely eat here again if we are passing through.

Stopped on a whim for lunch and had the BBQ Rib meal with slaw and veggies. Everything was prepared to perfection and very tasty. Well worth the trip and highly recommended.

Last week we went in with another couple. 4:30 p.m. so you'd think they'd be ready for dinner service. Place was dirty, hot. Food cold and just not tasty. Would have sent it all back if it wouldn't have embarrassed everyone. Service was lacking, like no one wanted to work. Voiced my dissatisfaction to staff but they seemed unconcerned.

I haven't eaten here before. I love waffles. This waffle was huge. Ok flavor. Service was good. Environment seemed old and tired. A little greasy like maybe the tables have been wiped with same rag toooo many times. It was mediocre at best. I would never take anyone there.

I eat here often so I've had the opportunity to try lots on the menu. My favorite is the homemade corned beef hash- they make it from brisket, the way it should be! Pancakes are crazy light and fluffy, the biscuits and gravy are fresh and heavenly. There's a bit of a wait unless you go early. Must try!

When relatives come to town, this is a must stop. They just love the food and the serving sizes! If you go on the weekend, you will need to go early as it is a very popular breakfast location.

Breakfast was delicious! We were pleasantly surprised by the freshly squeezed orange juice. The portions are huge and I could not finish my French toast. Unfortunately, the bacon was a little too thick and undercooked for my liking. The diner was very cute though and the food was good-- we left full and satisfied! We will visit again.

We ate at the Lake Havasu Diner and we loved it. So we thought we try the this one in Goodyear. We weren't disappointed, great breakfast and excellent service. Bring your appetite you won't go away hungry.

What a charming place! We stayed at the Quality Inn & Suites, which is in the same parking lot, and you get a discount at the diner when you show your room key. It was delicious food, and I recommend you share a little pie after your meal, or get one to go-- we got strawberry rhubarb and it was... More

My husband and I arrived at 11:30 AM on a Monday and were surprised to find there was a wait for a table or booth. We decided to sit at the counter which was a pleasant experience. Since breakfast is served all day I chose Bear's Choice which was two eggs and my choice of french toast and thick-cut bacon.... More
