There is always a line, lots of kids and seats cramped. Food is OK - lots of other places to go but if you live in the neighborhood I guess it's as good as any other

This looks like a typical diner but the menu is anything but that. You can get typical diner food Or more updated selections. Eggplant fries are yummy. And the breakfasts are huge and delicious. The home made corned beef hash is the best I have ever had.. We come here aLmost,every week for lunch or dinner.. Weekends are pretty crowded... More

The Town Diner is a great place. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner there and can't decide which is the best - it's all good! The menu is mostly comfort food with some healthy/vegetarian options as well. The diner atmosphere is authentic. Service is pleasant and good. Friendly and welcoming, it feels very homey when it's not too busy, but... More

I've gone for breakfast, brunch and dinner (still had breakfast foods). The "hungry man" meal was absolutely delicious: 2 sausages/bacons strips, 2 eggs, homefries, toast and either 2 slices of french toast or 2 pancakes. Certainly never left hungry! But boy can they burn a hole in your pocket. The meals are absolutely well portioned but for the money, there... More

This place is horrible. I went here 10 years ago and remember the dirty silverware, terrible food, and the tricky no prices on the drink side on the menu. I just went again today (not by choice). It has changed. The place got 10 years dirtier, older, and overall much worse. Décor is not classic dinner, its classic dump. Even... More

I took the time to visit the Deluxe Town Diner on the third and final day of my visit to Boston so I guess I'm making comparisons with the other two breakfasts I enjoyed elsewhere. The weather was beautiful after two days of rain and humidity. So I'm writing this sitting on the seat outside the diner while the experience... More

Went there with a family extended on all sides. The staff was right on the spot with the seats for one-year old twins, as well as with the more usual things, like water and coffee refills. They also took the inevitable mess and an occasional toddler's cry for justice and the world peace in strides. Breakfast menu was rather extensive... More

A great little traditional diner, building and all. Food was hot, fast and tasty. We had breakfast and it was just what we expected. Omelet was great as were blueberry pancakes. More than enough food for the money. Drink prices were a bit steep though. We'd definitely go here again. Highly recommended.

This great diner ticks all the boxes. One of the Worcester Lunch Car Company diners, with all the decor that would suggest, it offers a good choice of excellent pancakes, served with real Vermont maple syrup, also healthier breakfast options, as well as salads and sandwiches. This would be a great place to take visitors.

It was great to drive and find street parking. As you walk in, you can smell the great aroma of the food. Can also sense that the patrons were enjoying the food? We had the sweet potato pancakes with me pecans. They were delightful and yummy. The hash and eggs was delicious. The hash was shredded and tender with full... More
