Excellent!

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!

Breakfast anywhere is either OK, or great. Dad's has a very good breakfast. You never feel rushed. Family atmosphere. Prices are fair and competitive with other places in the area. They are always busy and a favorite of the locals.

Decided to eat here based on such favorable reviews/rating on TripAdvisor, but in this instance those who gave it such high remarks were terribly wrong. The food was bland (canned mushrooms anyone?) and way over priced ($70 for a family of four for a basic breakfast). Sorry Dad, but my recommendation is for those looking for a good breakfast to...

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.

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
