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

Best traditional cafe/greasy spoon in the area. Good food and If you like Maid Rite, and I do, try a Ross burger, a little bit different flavor and I happen to like them better. The crown jewel however is Ross' Magic Mountain, a piece of texas toast, covered with Iowa ground beef, topped with either french fries or hash browns,... More

This place was the "old greasy spoon" when I was in my late childhood. That was nearly 50 years ago. On my recent trip back to my hometown, we stopped in at Ross'. Not much has changed. Most importantly, the food is still good. I was really pleased to see that the menu was filled with locally-grown/raised foodstuffs. The service... More

I came back to the Quad Cities for a wedding and decided to trip down memory lane by stopping at what I remembered as an after hours greasy spoon. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised by the menu and all of the locally grown/raised entrees. I had to have a cup of gazpacho from all heirloom local veggies, delicious! I also... More
