I just had my first visit to Dinky's and I'll definitely be back. We went on a Sunday so it was moderately busy but with 'seat yourself' seating we found a spot immediately and were offered coffee before we even sat down. We ordered omelets with a side of bacon, and had our food in no time. The portions are... More

Went here recently after watching a crew regatta nearby. We were looking for a late breakfast and got there about 30 minutes befroe closing. We saw the reviews and figured we would give it a shot. The hash and cheddar omelette was thin and dry, hash tasted like it was from a can. Cranberry nut french toast was very good.... More

A funky diner with good service and good basic food. Three of us has breakfast, and all three were satisfied. Two had omelets and I had poached eggs on an English muffin. Would definitely go again.

There are several 'real' diners in/near Worcester. Dinky's is the best. The 40's era diner car is attached to a smallish modern building. Maybe 6 booths and long counter in the diner car and maybe 7 booths in the newer part. It's just a fun, welcoming place. Great breakfast and lunch. Fish Fridays dinner most weeks - but not sure...

We go to this diner just about every Saturday for the best breakfeast in the area. Great menu with daily specials and I haven't found a better omlet or home fries that compare. All of this valve is backed up by friendly fast service. Try it

We have had breakfast with friends here a number of times, and everybody has left very pleased with the experience. The Blue Belle Diner is a restored dining car from the 1940s which is attached to what used to be Dinky's Restaurant. Hours of operation are early morning to 1 p.m. (open until 8 p.m. on Fri), so plan for... More

Great diner fare. Reasonable prices. Went on a Friday night had the Fishermans platter. It was great, huge portion. Great small town atmosphere. Ice cream stand in the back is great too. You should go out of your way to eat there.
