Old Fashion Soda Bar

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

Huge portions.... Shared a great clubhouse sandwich n was definitely enough for two adults. The chocolate shake was a definite flashback to the past! Staff were super friendly and fun.... N a fun decor in a historic building. Great lunch place in Julian.

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 ).

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.
