Yummy and friendly service

You get a lot of home made breakfast and good service for a small price. Very busy but you are not rushed and you can tell it is family owned. Not fancy just a nice place, if you want home cooked food.

The service was wonderful. The waitress was clearly busy and working hard but still managed to give great service. She had a great attitude and was very pleasant. The pancakes were delicious and were the perfect size. The eggs were bland and so were the hash browns. I would come here again for the pancakes alone but wouldn't order any... More

This excellently priced breakfast nook might be a smidgen difficult to park at but fear not! Pancakes await indoors. Fresh and hot off the griddle delivered with a genuine smile in a reasonable amount of a time, your tummy will not have a moment to grumble. Large mugs of decent java advertise local business and pictures of the owners homeland... More

I ate here twice and each time was very good. The staff are friendly, efficient and the food was nice. Nothing beats small local diners. If I wee to open one in Bangkok, it would be modeled after Chris'.

I ate here with my family (party of 9) for lunch on a Friday. A gentleman sitting at the table next to ours said he comes here every Friday for the fried haddock and mac&cheese special. Two of us got that and we LOVED it. The haddock was fresh, thick, soft, and not fishy; it was fried very nicely. We... More

Outstanding Sunday breakfast. We sat at the counter and watched the cook work magic on the griddle. What a show! He works the home fries down the back of the griddle. Pancakes are huge. Bacon thin and crispy. 3-egg omelettes are delicious. All breakfasts cooked to perfection. Come hungry!

Good food, AMAZING prices and friendly service. For breakfast lunch or diner, Chris's Diner should DEFINETELY be considered. I personally suggest their breakfast which is served all day and is cheap but so good.
