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

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.

Went there for breakfast and everyone was pleased with their meal. Prices very reasonable. Service was good. From the outside, this place doesn't look inviting. Inside the decor is 50s style and cheery. Would go back again.

We went there for breakfast with the family. The place looks like a 50's diner but it could use some TLC. The food was ok, but nothing special. Hash browns were pretty dry. Service was good though. The waitress was friendly and very attentive.
