Authentic1930s Diner, Substantial Portions, Helpful Staff, Good Prices

Background: Whenever I visit Bethesda, MD (we live in VT), I try to catch up with some friends. One friend loves to eat at the Tastee Diner (established in the 1930s) as it is on his way home from work. Verdict: Having eggs, toast, and potatoes for an afternoon snack (or early dinner) is a... read more

This place was recommended by our hotel as a local place good to eat. We went there for breakfast, and we thought it was delicious! I had a bacon and cheese omelet with toast, and my husband had a steak and eggs breakfast. We thought the prices were excellent, and the service was excellent, too! While we were there, a... More

When you go to a diner, you expect diner food and yes, Tastee Diner delivers. The place is kind of seedy but clean and the wait staff, while looking tired, do a great job! Go here for good, inexpensive food that is going to feel you up and keep you going.

Still the best reasonable diner around D.C. Especially for breakfast/brunch. Memories w my father and the cream chipped beef and pancakes. Now we take our own kids. Remember it is a diner but a good one and reasonably priced for bethesda. Does get a little crowded on weekends. Can't miss with the kids.

Since my children (now in their 50's) were little, a trip to the pediatrician meant breakfast at the nearby Tastee Diner. Where else can one get perfectly cooked scrapple, bacon, eggs over easy? Even their coffee has improved over the years! And it's nice to see the "regulars" - both clientelle and waitstaff.

My friend and I went for a late breakfast during the week and had a great experience. The food was great and the service was quick but most of all we really liked messing with the jukebox at the table.

I took my granddaughter to Tastee,one of her favorite spots, after a Sunday morning run. As a typical diner it's shaped liked a railroad car with booths and stools at the the counter opposite. It hit on all the right cylinders though-fast service, hot coffee, and decent food. I had oatmeal with raisins and a banana. My hungry granddaughter had... More

Great breakfast. Staff with heart and humour. Traditional dinerfood. When you enter Tastee Diner it feels like time has stood still since ww2. Back to the past. The chef behind the counter a Tenneseenative, is Dennis the menice look alike as an adult, with the friendliest of smiles. A must visit IF you are in Bethesda MD.

I've visited DC by way of Bethesda, MD since 2008 and each visit has included a trip to the Tastee Diner. The price is right, the food is very tasty, and the staff are friendly and make you feel at home. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Tastee Diner. On my most recent stay in Bethesda, I had... More
