A small family owned restaurant that provides an incredible range of choices at very affordable prices. You don't go here for fine dining in fact it's closer to and old fashioned diner. It's comfortable, friendly, it's very easy to have a conversation. The is well prepared and the portion sizes are generous. A very good restaurant for families!

Me and my wife usually share an entree here..I love coming here for breakfast and dinner.. The staff is awesome and the patrons... More

We go to Dina's about once a month. It's a friendly place and the portions are actually bigger than we want. The dining area is L-shaped an the back part is definitely quieter than the front part. They appear to have lots of regulars which is probably a good sign. There is ample parking in the back. It's sort of... More

I went because I had a coupon. The portions were big, and a decent price. I had not been in years, but it was the same. They were not packed but had a steady amount of customers.

We chose Dina's from the reviews on tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed. The waitress was very frendly and attentive. Good food and large portions. We will be back.

Food was pretty good, not great. Service was good to very good. Problem with it was it wasn't as clean as some other diners in the area. If I was in the specific area, would go back, but wouldn't go out of my way to return. Easy parking.

I received very dishonorable and crappy treatment as a customer. I would not recommend this place if it were free. This is a very shady place which doesn't care about its reputation or customers. I presented a http://restaurant.com certificate to them which they said they would accept, then they submitted it as used. Then they proceeded to tell me that... More

Can only speak to breakfast because never had any other meals. The food is always plentiful and good. Service is attentive and fast. One of our favorite breakfast spots.

I love this place for lunch and dinner. They always have specials and very reasonable prices. The Service is always good. Free parking lot behind lot is good too. They serve breakfast too. But have not tried it in a long time. Big menu. Long time Fremont family runs business. Professional and Quality ALWAYS!!!!

It isn't that hard to wash lettuce, but whoever was on call the day I went obviously did not bother to wash the lettuce, as I found a large bug halfway through. Just a disgusting experience. Even if I were offered ten free meals, I could not go back. The experience was just stomach turning.
