Good Comfort Food

No doubt, it's as divey as it ever gets. Good hole-in-the-wall diner. Torn blue vinyl seats; brown Formica tables. Local seniors hanging out midday drinking coffee and discussing world affairs in a way only old men can do. Had the Wednesday Special of Beef Stroganoff. Came with Chicken Dumpling... read more

I accidentally came across this little diner while out on a business trip in the area. Since I do not like to visit the big chain restaurants I was thrilled to see this little hole in the wall. (That is a good term). The wait staff were down home and friendly, and it was obvious that they have a large... More

Love the fried fish, but I prefer salad to the mac and cheese, there hot turkey dinner is yummy as well.

The Big Sky Diner is a neighborhood legacy. If you go inside, the original diner is still there in all its chrome glory and the present diner has been built up around it. The BSD has a new owner since about 4 years ago. He used to be a chef and he comes in at 2 am to start making... More
