Brought back memories of the late eighties/early nineties...

Used to be our hangout as teens back in the day. So I had preconceived ideas of what Spires was like before trying this place. Pros: Great greasy spoon (compliment) diner food, great ranch dressing, great mozzarella sticks (just like in 1991), counter seating. I Have a soft spot for greasy... read more

Typical American fast food diner. We went on a Sunday evening and it was fairly quiet. Service was excellent and for this type of restaurant the food was very good. We walked from the Best Western as the rental car had been returned.

Every Sunday, for the past few decades, my family comes to Spires after church. We are loyal customers to Spires. The employees are nice and caring. My family and I always leave with a smile on our face and a perfectly full stomach. Many things there are good, especially the chicken jumbo soup, which is only served on Sunday's. Try... More

The food was pretty darn good, especially considering the low price. And the service was fast and friendly. It's kind of like a Denny's but MUCH better.

We visited this restaurant several times during our visit to California. Food was good, service was good and it was clean. It is a good place to go for a meal. Just bring a lite jacket if you chill easily, it seemed a little cold each time we visited.

Been eating Sunday morning breakfasts here for years when visiting nearby Hawthorne. The service is great. The family atmosphere is wonderful. The chicken fried steak is my favorite. Nice economy restaurant,

Really good breakfast options. Friendly place -- most of the patrons are regulars and are well-known by the employees. Makes for a nice atmosphere.

OK, maybe the place is a little dated but the food was good. We had breakfast there yesterday and everything was fine. Reminded us of one f our favorite breakfast spots back home in Chicago. Service was great, don't know what the others are complaining about. I'd go back!

The food tastes old, bland, and lacks spices and fresh, quality ingredients. You get a lot of food but it's not very tasty. The decor and atmosphere is reflective of an era 50 years ago: old, dull, and depressing. The service is average at best. The waitresses/waiters are not young, energetic, or charismatic. It is also rather expensive. If you... More
