Neat little 50's diner feel place!

This is a small family restaurant with that 50's diner atmosphere. Service is very friendly and appears to employ some of the local youth. Very friendly and attentive and the food selection was broad and at a very good price. Due to my current diet could not try most of it. The burger's seemed to... read more

Loved the breakfast here and the very friendly staff. Also loved the wall decor, juke box and the general feel of a 59's diner

...this little diner is just above average...it is a small establishment & the tables are too close to the standard booths....the menu does have a good bit of a variety for breakfast, lunch or dinner...and are served all day....they are famous for their milkshakes....it is a typical basic "diner" menu so nothing special that makes them stand out....one of my...

We stopped in based on other reviews and oh, man are we glad we did. I got a sausage breakfast scramble with a side of biscuits and gravy, and my better half got steak fingers (a local Idaho fare that's hard to find elsewhere), a caramel milkshake, and a vanilla coke. The menu selection was enormous and the food was... More

We ate here with a group of 12 family members. The decoration and nostalgia items were quite enjoyable. The menu options were wonderful! ...almost overwhelming! Anything you could want from a diner and several items you wouldn't even think of. The prices were quite reasonable. I recommend the Papa Grinde's burger and a Mississippi Mud Slide malt, but I'm sure... More

Stopped here to grab some lunch with friends on the way back to Boise. Pretty unimpressed....our waitress was very short with us the whole time, just seemed to have a bad attitude. Waited forever to get our food, waited even longer to get our condiment we asked for, and to top that off, the food was barely warm. Every thing... More

We ate lunch here with friends. The burgers and fries were delicious. Prices were below average. The staff was very friendly, cheerful and helpful. Very clean, good atmosphere, well-maintained. Would eat here again.

Very yummy taco salad with chicken!!!! Normally I don't get to eat taco salad because I don't eat burger but at Grinde's they offer chicken. Happy dance!

My husband and I had lunch here. Little off the beaten path bit worth finding. We think the Reubens sandwich was one of the best. Service was quick and friendly. Chip fries were different. They had quite a variety on the menu and the decor was authentic 50s. Fun and yummy.
