The service was just ok. The food wasn't too bad. The bacon was delicious but how can you go wrong? The omelets had practically no egg. I was also a little off put by the fact that they don't take credit cards. Cash only always makes me a little leery. The food is good if you are looking for greasy... More

Old looking dinner for a great price and even though it's under a highway bridge, it's still a great place because there open all night.

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

Doesn't look like the photo here, that's from at least 15 years ago. Been rebuilt after a fire in the building behind (Worcester Cold Storage) fell over on to diner. 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...
