A little hard to review this place. When you first walk in you want to turn and leave. Floor needed a good cleaning, walls were unadorned, tables were dark and old. But knowing I've had some really good meals at real dives, I decided to give it a try. It was an odd time of day so it wasn't busy... read more

Great place to meet & eat for family, couples, meetings, & all. Excellent efforts from staff to take care of you. Very good food, great value cost wise. We stop by on Sunday a lot after church. Fried chicken can't be beat.

This is an extremely casual place and very busy on a Sunday afternoon. Must be a lot of "after church" customers. The fried chicken was very good though. Service was so-so because the waitress was in a hurry. Waitress was rather short tempered as well, until she presented us with the check and she took 30 seconds to chit-chat. Things... More

Have eaten here a couple of times recently and I have to say the food quality has gone downhill. Spaghetti was watery and the sauce was so thin you couldn't tell it was on there. The pizza is ok; definitely nothing to write home about. Crust was burnt. No offer to fix the problems. Will be a long time before... More

The old adage, you get what you pay for. Food is cheap but quality is poor. Their attempt at a roast beef sandwich was overcooked beef served with very salty au ju. The salad bar looked like they put it out at 9 am and it was just sitting there. Waitress almost too friendly and obviously knew a lot of... More

We went there for breakfast after deciding since it was closer than driving all the way cross town and some had eaten there before and it was okay. BIG MISTAKE. The waitress was nice enough but the time we had to wait for the food - an hour. There were people there when we arrived who we found still had... More

Prompt service, excellant food & large portions, 2 of us ordered full breakfasts with 1 coffee and 1 iced tea, check was $ 15.74 including tax. Will eat there... More

Compared to the Downtown Diner, this breakfast was more expensive, smaller and not nearly as tasty. The ambiance is worse, too, in my opinion. For breakfasts, Pagliacci's is just average.

I can only speak for breakfast but it rocked. All the locals go here and it's a little off the beaten path but great breakfast menu and value. 7 of us ate a ton of food for under $50 and nobody left hungry. Our cups were always full and the staff was attentive. We ate there twice.
