Once again, we found this local's favorite courtesy of Trip Advisor. We loved the friendly, energetic vibe and generous, tasty food. And wow--is the service FAST! If you're driving through the area and thinking about where to eat, we would definitely recommend a detour to this great little family-owned spot!

There's a wait here on weekends, but it's worth it. Friendly service and good food. I had steak and eggs and asked for a sliced tomato and avocado instead of hashbrowns and toast. Got it without any problems. The meal was delicious.

The portions are huge, and the quality of the food served at Baldies is excellent. If you're not from the Union City area, make sure to enter the address in your car's map/guidance system if it is equipped with one, as it is very easy to miss this place while driving. I can understand why they don't need to have... More

Baldies serves diner fare that is good. But the price it comes with also draws large crowds; especially on the weekends so expect that the later you arrive the longer wait. Average wait time is usually minimal; 5-10 minutes but has never exceeded 15 minutes when lines extend out the door. Parking can be a bit of an issue as... More

Baldie's is always frequented and the wait to be seated is rarely over 15 minutes (usually immediate), even when there are people waiting out the door. The food is tasty and there is plenty of it. (There really isn't great food in this area.) I'd say it's American and Greek comfort food. The prices are affordable. Many older folk are... More

Its an older crowd that typically eat here but the food is inexpensive, solid, fast diner food with a decent atmosphere and good staff. Worth a visit.

Fair disclosure, my husband and son like this place a lot. Food is just not to my liking and the upkeep is sometimes off.

Great food, friendly staff and low prices. This place reminds me of an east coast diner- where else can you get a triple decker club made of real roasted turkey. Breakfast is always great- they sell a lot of waffles.

Have been going to this restaurant for the past 20 years and have never had a bad meal. The greek burger and greek salad are the bomb and their fries are extra crisp. They always have a delicious soup of the day and the helping are generous. My niece loves their fried chicken and their beef dip will melt in... More
