Had a good breakfast...

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 &... read more

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

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.

I usually worry about cleanliness and quality in this part of town. Uncle Lenny's is an exception. It is very clean and the food is always fresh, not too greasy. I always substitute a side for the salad bar. It is fresh, clean and has quality ingredients. Plus, the salad bar give you an even larger portion for your side.... More

We have gone there only a couple of times and will never go back. Both times they brought us the small condiments in those rip-open containers. Well all of the condiment containers had expiration dates averaging between one to two months expired. They menu is very inexpensive, but one has to wonder about the quality of the food they are...

The breakfast here is very good. Everything else I habe eaten here is pretty good as well but the breakfast is what we cone for. For lunch or dinner we tend to go elsewhere as a first choice but like I said, its pretty good. Employees are friendly and the place seems clean to me.

Good home cooked food, great desserts. Prices are reasonable and they have good daily specials. Servers are all very friendly and provide excellent service and free refills on most drinks.

This restaurant can be seen with many "regulars" and family groups on any given night! Great food, service actually cares, and the owner will even wander around to say hello and thank you! Yes, there are many older people with their wheelchairs and canes...my own mother is one of them. Think if you reach that age how many other restaurants... More
