Good Old Time Diner

Loved the old time soda fountain venue. Great malts and floats the old way with real ice-cream. Great food and loved the display of all the soda bottles.

Not only is Miner's Diner a big building full of fun, but the food is as tasty as the antique decor! A long, polished soda fountain counter with swinging stools, historic photos and artifacts on the walls, 1950s music, and Bob's Big Boy all greet you for a great meal! So many choices! The hot coffee, burger and veggie burger... More

Good Hamburgers and REAL Ice Cream made Sodas, Milk Shakes and Malts. Very busy on the weekends when Julian is most popular with those who want an hour or less drive from almost any place in San Diego Country

The folks at Julian Pie Company sent us over to Miners Diner for lunch, and we thought it was pretty good. We had the pulled pork sandwich, which was very good, with a tasty barbecue sauce served on the side, and a huge mound of pulled pork on a nice, soft roll. The cole slaw was a bit bland. We... More

I was originally going to write this review while eating at the Miner's Diner, But I found it too hard to put down my burger and fries while eating at the Diner! I ordered a delicious Buffalo burger, Fries, and a mocha almond fudge malt. The dinner also serves old-fashion Soda's which taste great! The diner also has a candy... More

I had a nice breakfast here. The server was friendly. The food was good. I'd go back. Lots of bric brac on the walls, oldies playing on the stereo.

The French fries were the best part of the meal, we were a party of 5, 3 adults and 2 children. We were served in a timely fashion but generally disappointed in the meal considering the prices charged.

7 of us went there for lunch today. We all had burgers. The service was good and the burgers were also good ( except fot the 1000 island dressing on it). The fries were very good for frozen ( crispy coating ). We all left satisfied. A burger and coke was $13.55 ( a little pricey ).
