Good food with many options.

We live right down the street from Uncle Linny's, so it makes quick carry out or an easy weekend breakfast stop. Good burgers, great breakfast. Their tacos are pretty addictive. We have had several items on the menu, and most of them are really good. Never had anything bad. For some reason I... read more

Was over in Granite City for my granddaughter's hockey game. Went here with my sister & brother-in-law. Food is absolutely delicious. The portions are huge, food is homemade. The service is so nice. They gave us a to go homemade bread pudding (they said it was free today). Will definitely be back.

This place was recommended by a local hotel in the area. We showed up on a Saturday. It was prime rib night. 10oz for $12.50. It was really good. I would order it again. My wife ordered the fried chicken, she didn't care much for it. Said it was a little greasy. I came back Sunday. Honestly because there are... More

It probably wouldn't have been that bad of an experience if it weren't the punk high school age kids running the place, it was like being in a bad Nikolodean episode. They were cleaning, as in vacuuming and swinging chairs, being all loud right next to me while I was eating. My waiter was rude as hell, gossiping while walking... More

This is a great, clean, modern diner. Fantastic and cheap breakfasts, but don't be fooled, it is quality cooking. The French toast is very well done, double dipped, topped with strawberries, bananas, caramel, sugar, whipped cream... Excellent place for families, business lunch or breakfast. Incredibly nice wait staff.

The outside of this place would certainly not entice you in. The only reason we went in was because the owner at a nearby bar recommended it. (we had mistakenly stopped at the bar, called Smoky Joes, thinking it was a BBQ place) Anyway we went into Uncle Linny's. The interior sort of matched the exterior - well-worn. We ordered... More

Met my uncle for breakfast at Hardee's. He suggested that eat at Linny's so we did just that. Service was good as was our food. My uncle covered our tab but I think the cost was very reasonable. I have to say that I enjoyed my visit with my uncle so much I was less focused on the food &... More

Have gone for brunch and dinner on several occasions. Always get plenty of food for your dollar and the food is delicious. It's like one of those hidden treasures. Good food, great price, great service. They are always busy though so you have to get there just at the right time. Love this place.
