No frills

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 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

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 ).

Great burgers! had to wait a little to get acknowledged as they don't have a a hostess,but within minutes. Great variety of sodas some flavors I haven't heard of yet. They have a little candy shop for kids with all kind of Mine-themed candies.Will go back.

We visited Julian for the snow. While we where there we decided to have lunch there. We found a few places to go eat but the wait time was really long. We had the Miner's Burger and Cherry Coke. The burger was really good but a little on the small side. The chille beans where great and the corn bread... More

the best strawberry malted in the state of CA...and this coming from someone who has been to most corners and towns and far reaches of the state. Made the drinks with fresh ingredients, nice and thick and well worth the price.

This is like stepping back in time into a true old fashioned diner and soda fountain! From the menu to the creaky wooden floor and decor it is soda fountain all the way! We enjoyed a great lunch here complete with grilled cheese and fries for my wife to my burger and coleslaw with a grape phosphate! The service is... More

We came as a group for lunch on a Sunday afternoon around 1 pm and we were informed that our table would be ready in 15 minutes, but then that wait ended up becoming a 1 hour wait. And then after ordering, we waited yet another hour for our food, so from arriving until getting our food, we waited a... More
