If you want good home cooking....this is the place to go. Great staff, wonderful setting and great food. If you leave here hungry...it's not because they didn't try to fill you up.

Enough of a varied menu to keep it interesting, tasty home type comfort food. Great quantity, Something for everybody. Great service, friendly... More

Tried it for the first time recently. Super friendly staff, large menu full of delicious food. Large portions. We will definitely come back and try Dad's again. There are so many delicious choices we need to try and we loved the experience. Lots of fun and simply great food at amazing prices.

We made a mistake ordering beef fajitas and a Navajo special which was a sort of a large puffy taco. The fajita meat was tough and the "special" was kind of bland. Tortilla soup was ok. The American food looked good though. Wish we would have ordered it. The chocolate cake was moist, yummy and enough for all 4 of... More

Excellent service, pretty good food, big portions, but the kitchen is slow. We waited about 20 minutes after the server took our order.

The place is one of those cute, nostalgic 50s style diners and even has homemade pies. We both ordered the breakfast sandwich and it came out unbelievably fast. Service is friendly and accommodating. Go here instead of the usual breakfast chain places!
