Great food! Give them a try and you won't be sorry.

Sullivan's Diner is the best. It is like walking into your parent's house and having a great meal. Everything I have tried is excellent; catfish, patty melt, salads, and the meat rolls and fried rice. The pad Thai noodles are amazing. The owner and his wife are precious, as well as his mother... read more

We were excited to go here. Closed on Sunday and Monday. Disappointed in the reality. Looks like a nice place with 10 or more parking spaces. Directions were challenging .

So what was disappointing with Sullivan's Diner? I can't fix it if you don't tell me the problem you think is disappointing. In reality, you are being unfair to customers trying to decide where to eat if you don't help us fix the disappointment you had. Thanks for your support, Carl Sullivan, Owner. More

Very eclectic menu. Had the pad Thai with 2 garden salads and a meat roll. Salads fresh, very good. Pad Thai very good. I think the meat roll was homemade, and was very good, especially with the special hot sauce.

Cute little diner with a variety of foods. The owners were friendly and so where the customers. They only have 8 tables and the Pad Thai was very good.

I was very excited to hear of Sullivan's from a friend when I was craving Thai, and didn't think there were any restaurants in Saline Co. that offer it. I have been there several times since, and have never been disappointed! The portions are large, the flavors authentic, and the owner is friendly and great to chat with while waiting... More

The mix of food is pretty good. You can get chili fries or biscuits and gravy anytime. The wife of the owner who is also the cook makes the best authentic thai food around but you can also get classic country fare like Liver and onions or just a good cheeseburger. This is a go to place for the lunch... More
