Solid Diner Food - Best Biscuits and Gravy!

Great for breakfast, or any time. Best biscuits and gravy in tri-city area! But other breakfasts are good too. Been here many times, and never been disappointed.

Whether it's a rainy day like today or an evening when no one wants to cook, Baldie's is a wonderful option. The soups are hearty, the potions are huge and the staff are all competent & folksy-friendly. What's not to like??

My family came here for breakfast based on the rave reviews listed on Yelp. Needless to say, we were disappointed and won't return. The wait was 15 minutes early on a Sunday. Ok, no big deal. We have no problem waiting for good food. While waiting, we watched the host seat a group that arrived after us. When questioned, he... More

We love going to Baldies for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great home cooked meals . . . love the liver and onions and the meatloaf.

I live just down the street, so I've been a few times. I enjoy the omelettes and usually there's not too long a wait during light customer times. Huge portions - I usually bring half home.

Top class breakfast I am a big fan of eggs benedict and the serving here was as good as anywhere I have had it before. My partner had Belgian waffles with a heap of strawberries which was demolished in no time and she can be a picky eater. Sadly we are only in the area for one day or we... More

Our first time to eat in this diner. We came on a Sunday morning, As soon as we opened the door we smelled something burning, that was not a good sign. We ordered their breakfast special and it was ok, but the country style biscuits and gravy is nothing that should be served. Biscuits are not fresh and a bit... More

Please remove Biscuits and Gravy from your Menu. Serving military grade (possibly weapons grade) hardtack biscuits as the foundation of a breakfast on tray is fraudulent. I'm from the southern Midwest and am always trying biscuits and gravy at diners around Cali. As a Minimum requirement a biscuits need a few of these attributes: warm, soft, flaky, fluffy, buttery Chipping... More
