We normally stop here for breakfast and lunch, after church. It is always bustling in this diner, and the staff always friendly. No matter what you order it's always tasty.

Decided to treat my son to breakfast and out of the 4 local restaurants I suggested, he picked Uncle Joe's Diner. Said he hadn't been there in years. Our waitress was wonderful, very personable. We both picked the Western omelet that came with your choice of toast. He got rye and I got raisin. When the bill came, they charged... More

Diner atmosphere and quality but the place is fun and a staple if you live in the area. You'll find lots of families and little kids there. The pancakes are good as well.

My egg wrap was dripping wet and soggy. Completely disgusting. They took it off the bill and offered more but the other meal at my table looked gross too and had a hair in it. Wouldnt go back if it was free.

We went here for breakfast. The place was clean, the service outstanding and the food was very good. The omelettes and breakfast taco was to die for.

We chose this restaurant from Trip Adviser reviews, what a disappointment! We do not usually order pancakes in a restaurant, why we both ordered them, we don't know -it was a major mistake. My husband ordered banana pancakes, I chose pumpkin. The banana pancakes were a mushy mess, the pumpkin ones were like sawdust, they looked good when they were... More

My trip along US-20 included trying to eat in the classic places where travelers would have stopped in the 40s and 50s. Well this was built in 1974 so it did not really qualify. But it had the character of those classic diners with a typical menu, good food and service service and a very reasonable price. Not crowded on... More

As part of a group of five, I had lunch at Uncle Joe’s Diner in early October 2014. The place is a Hamburg NY institution, full of character, but was not particularly busy at the noon hour; service was good - attentive and prompt. The food ranged from just okay to dyn-o-mite: shrimp on the dinner platter were heavily breaded... More

We happened to stop in on our travels, and discovered the Oktoberfest special - Bratwurst, Knockwurst, Sauerkraut, and German potato salad. It's a 50's style diner and they were playing early 60's pop music, things I haven't heard in many years. Great place to eat, and excellent food!!
