Classic hometown diner

I love this place. This is a classic Midwest dinner that is so hard to find now. Just like the Route66 diners we did on our big trip.

I used to go to Ross' with my dad over 50 years ago. I have never been a regular but stopped by from time to time over the years and have never understood the appeal. I never considered the food or atmosphere to be anything but average. I made a stop last week before their move just to revisit one... More

Thanks to Siri we were in need of a good place to eat and she guided us to Ross. What a cool place with tasty food. Amazing cinnamon rolls as big as your head. Great farm fresh eggs served hot and fast. So cool to hear that Ross started in Peoria. If you are near Betindorff and hungry do yourself... More

Presidents have eaten here. They use fresh beef for their burgers. They use farm fresh eggs at breakfast. If you like the old American Diner experience this is the place for you. They have the Magic Mountain: Texas toast topped with fries, ground beef, raw onions, and cheese sauce, it's not health food, but it is good. They also have... More

This is a classic for the area! This place has been around for a long while. The service is wonderful. This place is a true dinner. You will not be harassed by the staff in order to turn over the tables. If you need something, simply flag down the waiter/waitress (or one will stop by to inquire on your table... More

We stopped here for a quick breakfast and ended up chatting for an hour. They offer a wide variety 24 hours a day that includes vegan and gluten free! The prices are very reasonable and portion sizes are moderate to large. You can tell this is a third generation restaurant as photos and staff are happy to reminisce. They will... More

Only place around where I can get anything similar to poutine! Also, definitely try one of the Mountains- you won't regret it (but your waistline might...)

Ross's Restaurant gets a lot of publicity in our local newspaper about their menu and the famous people who have dined there. I have lived in the Quad City area for 13 years, but never gave Ross's a try... until I stopped for breakfast today. The sign in the entry says "seat yourself", so I did... a waitress quickly appeared... More

I was surprised how vegetarian friendly this place is with vegetarian tacos burgers and sandwiches. A whole page on the menu is dedicated to vegetarian options. Even a vegan chocolate cake. Just be aware some stuff has eggs and milk depending on your level of vegetarian. The food is comfort diner food and really friendly staff.

My wife and I have eaten there a number of times over the years, not real regular, but we always knew what to expect each time. It was always good. We were quite diappointed this time. It used to be, when you walked through the door, that smell of fryin' was coming out of the kitchen and those huge homemade... More
