If you are going on a Sunday you will most likely have to wait but I guarantee it will be worth it! I have been here about 5 times and you always get an excellent home cooked meal with a smile!

We go to Dad's almost every Sunday after church and there is always a line. I don't mind waiting because the food is always delicious and the service is always friendly. We tried Rick's when we first moved to Wallingford and we waited in line. Food was okay but we were squished into a tiny area with no room for... More

Nice mom & pop type old- fashioned diner with some interesting selections. The chocolate covered bacon pancakes sounded interesting, but I got the taco omelet. Mix of table and counter seating. Good food, good prices, and clean bathroom.

You are pretty much guaranteed for have to wait in line for a seat for breakfast. Its worth it though the service and the food is great. Have been here many times, brought friends and family. I have not tried lunch but im looking forward to it!

So I'm reading the menu and I trip over an item called Hungarian pancakes. What? They're thin, rolled pancakes containing walnuts, cinnamon and brown sugar. Awesome! My spouse had an omelet with spinach and cheese. The home fries are the real deal, not fried tater tots. A great breakfast served by a friendly, attentive staff!

So I was on my way to treat myself to a NICE breakfast at Rick's Diner which is pretty much right next door to Dad's, but on this morning the line was out the door at Rick's so I decided to go to Dad's. There was no wait, I sat at the counter, the waitress came up to me within... More

Have been coming here for years. Typically you can expect a good quality breakfast meal. However, the past three visits have been disappointing. Service is good, staff friendly and generally clean inside. Muffins have been terrible. I am thinking they either have someone new baking or they have changed recipes. You have to ask for jelly since they won't offer... More

I googled "breakfast places in Wallingford" and found this. As the name of the restaurant suggested, it was a Mom and Pop place. We were greeted by a lovely lady who walked us to a corner table. The choices,prices and service was great. It was far from fancy, but I highly recommend it!
