There is a reason the Kenmore Diner has been recognized so many times for being Worcester's Top Rated Diner. Breakfast is always cooked to order … hot, fresh & delicious. This is a family business … the owner, Jimmy, clearly runs a no-nonsense operation … assisted by his lovely wife, Pauline & their handsome son, George (along with his two... More

Yes you have to look for the opening in the guard rail to get in, and no all the spaces don't have meters. Breakfast of 3 eggs (cooked perfectly), with... More

Went there on Friday at 8:30 and the food was promptly delivered. Two eggs, potatoes (not cooked all the way), 4 slices of bacon and wheat toast. Could not eat all of the huge portions, wish the potatoes were cooked more though.

The Kenmore was good 20 years ago. Now there's a chainlink fence around the entire parking lot, which has meters on the spaces inside. I drove all around it, through the fire station lot, and couldn't find an opening. There are tons of diners in Worcester, slinging the same ol' hash. A small business that makes it this hard to...

Italian toast was good. To me the true test of a diner is how they make their home fries, which are often described as home fries but really... More

After trying other places, we always return to the Kenmore. It is difficult to find a better omelette anywhere IMO - except for the Mirage in Las Vegas which is too far :)
