the classic small diner for breakfast and lunch

Fifth Wheel has been in this spot FOREVER. When I say forever, I remember noting the neon sign driving past it in the 1960s! I'm quite sure it's changed hands over the years but nothing else seems to change (other than, regretably, the neon sign where the G changed to an F and it spelled "GOOD... read more

Flew into Oakland Airport in the AM and ready for breakfast. Searched for local restuarants near my destination and found the Fifth Wheel with 4 out of 5 star rating. The diner is beyond rustic, it needs rehab. The service is ok. Coffee arrived quickly… I like that. I ordered sunny side eggs, french toast, no bacon and a side... More

We had breakfast at Fifth Wheel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food ample, but nothing really special. My chicken-apple sausage and cheese omelette seemed to have a pool of melted Velveeta in the middle of it. I asked the to add mushrooms to the omelette for extra cost, but they said they were out of mushrooms. The pancakes... More

You just gotta love this tiny hole-in-the-wall truck-stop style diner. Great breakfasts for the hungry for everything crowd. Family run and 10 times better ambience than Denny's!!

This is a family run hole in the wall. 4 tables and a counter that has 12 stools ensures a wait on the weekends. Pancakes, large, thick strips of bacon, linguisa, hash brown's. Everything is cooked to order. 3 large pancakes, 2 eggs, 4 pieces of bacon cost about $7.50. One of my favorite spots!

Good place to drop in and have breakfast. Stayed in the area for a week and ate at the fifth wheel 3 times. Would go back again if in the area.

The gravy, biscuits, eggs and pancakes are all done well. Exactly what a mom and pop diner turns out for breakfast... just wish they had more seating and were open longer hours...

Good breakfast and burger place. Small so you have to wait for a table.
