A perfect local New Hampshire diner. One location, easy on and off rte 93, good, fresh food served fast and with a smile. Patronized by lots of locals and truckers, always a good sign! Nice extensive menu of comfort foods too.

The service is friendly and fast. The food is better than expected. The homefries are very good. They have a wide range of choices to please everyone. The coffee is awful. The place is dirty.

Wow, the staff is like a well oiled machine at Poor Boy's! They compliment each other and the service is thorough, but not rushed. Food is very, very good. We were there on Saturday morning and instead of heading north home, went south Sunday morning for another great meal. Well done Poor Boy's, very well done!

I have had the pleasure of dining with the always nice folks of the Poor Boy's diner a number of times while traveling to and from Londonderry. I can say this without a doubt, they give you a good portion of food for a very reasonable price. This place has never let me down.

Just off the (Rte. 93) highway, this diner is terrific! The menu has satisfying offerings for everyone,,,featuring "home cooking" favorites...decent portions at fair prices. We keep this place in mind when we are passing through the area. The food is always freshly prepared...comfort food to ease the stress of highway travel. You can't go wrong with a visit to Poor...

The shoestring onion rings were amazing, chicken tenders large pieces were good, but most of them were small and way over cooked dry and hard. We had to pay extra for french fries with chicken tenders, plate online said they were included in price. We had looked at menu online before going and prices did not match prices we were... More

It's a diner. Diner food, diner service. You won't leave hungry and the two times we have been the servers were quite friendly and accommodating.
