I have been to Hub City a few times for breakfast. They have a real good selection of breakfast food and all that I have tried have been very good. The diner is very clean and well kept and the service is very good. If your looking for a place for breakfast be sure to give Hub City a try.

50's style diner. Service was excellent as was the food. I had the grilled catfish on a bed of shrimp etouffee. I have eaten authentic creole food several times. This was some of the best.

This 50s style dinner is just fantastic and a great place for any meal, but especially breakfast and lunch. Cheap with consistently great food in a very friendly atmosphere. You will see Jimmy, the owner, there everyday visiting with everyone and it is always full of regulars, especially at breakfast. Great fried dill pickles, rueben, burgers, plate lunches and salads.

The red beans and rice were excellent. The corn maque choux was also excellent. Two of us split the brownie and it could have served four. Our waitress was good.

Food used to be pretty good here; however the hamburger I had a few days ago not so much. It was burned beyond recognition so badly that it looked like roadkill. Won't be back.

Pretty good, diner style food served up by friendly, attentive staff. Nice variety, fair prices. I did not find anything exceptional on this visit, but they seem to give everything a good try.

I use to like this place because of the food and the atmosphere. My wife and I both got the meatloaf and we both were really disappointed. I did like the pecan pie with the ice cream though.

I like the casual, friendly atmosphere where the owners walks around and greats people. The food is good home cooking and very decent prices. Locals go there all the time! I love breakfast, especially the veggie omelet - they load you up with tons of veggies! their biscuits are to die for. They are also know for their meatloaf plate... More
