Best place to take a senior

One of the few Mid-west stuck in 1982 coffee shops left. The decor has not changed at all since then with faded Norman Rockwell prints on the walls and rubber curtains between the plastic booths. The food is strictly classic diner food with not much taste other than salt. The breakfast is ultra... read more

Stopped by to grab a quick grilled cheese sandwich. Wait staff were courteous, place was clean, and food was served promptly.

We usually go to one of two places for breakfast when we are in town and this is one. Great service and great food for not a lot. It's full of locals and casual. One of our favorites.

Asked hotel for a breakfast restaurant and they sent us to Dennys. Instead we found Spires, which was closer to hotel. Just like a NY Diner. Great service and prices. The menu discounted for Sr. Citizens. My coffee cup kept getting refills. The food was well presented..choices of fresh fruit with my eggs, or sourdough french toast or waffle. Each... More

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 American diners, so I'm biased! For those of you... 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,
