Food so good you gotta slap yo momma

Ok so the title may be a little bit of a stretch, but when my southern Texas-born husband does an eye roll and says, "oh my god this is the best chicken fried steak I've ever had," it's slap yo momma good. We visited the Silver Diner in Rockville for breakfast while in town visiting family. The... read more

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here. Pancakes were excellent, and the corned beef hash was top notch. It's a fun atmosphere with that classic diner feel. The service was great, both from the host and our waitress. The rest of the menu looks great, too, but we've always enjoyed the breakfast so much we haven't gotten around to it :-)

It's not what you think. It's a novilty. A step up from McDonald's. Just don't waist money in the jukebox. Good for a burger and fries. For some reason people are jammed in here on the weekend. Not for me.

Quick stop never so crowded that a short wait is worth it. We have tried a power breakfast also with excellent fruit and yogurt smoothies to go!

I've been to this restaurant twice, and I've eaten at several other locations in this franchise. Kudos to Chef Ype who has taken diner fare to a whole new level! As someone who eats gluten free and can't eat nitrates, I applaud the menu that truly offers something for everyone. This is the only restaurant I've ever been in that... More

You walk in the door and suddenly the atmosphere is transformed to a 50's style diner only it's bright ,fresh and clean and usually busy.

Had to wait 20 mins but the service and food were great. A large selection on the menu with a 50's look.

I love the music theme, and the breakfast is amazing! The bad part is waiting, but I guess is worth it. It's like traveling in time, with the good music and the jukebox. Service is not so good though.

They have a very decent food for a diner . Last time I went there was with a group of girlfriends quite late at night and had some food after the party . The service was good and I had a very tasty corn chowder , tasted also salmon sliders from my friends plate and was positively surprised .
