Yes, it's generally diner food, but very good diner food. What I can say is that I've eaten here often, I've never had a bad meal, and I've always experienced good service.

We decided to meet our daughter and granddaughters for a quick visit/lunch at a central meeting point. After shopping in some local stores we drove to the City Limits Diner for lunch. The place is clean, has friendly staff and people and good food.

The food here is really good, and it's relatively cheap. If I want a quick, good meal, then I come to City Limits Diner. The pasta is great, and they serve breakfast at all times!

Not your grandfather's diner! A much fancier menu and higher prices than a classic diner. Really good food and service and an easy to get to location. Parking can be a problem but there is a muni lot across Central Avenue (Route 100) as well.

I go here almost 2 twice a month with my 2 year old son. The food is great, the wait times have been very minimal, and staff has always been great as well. Look to visit this place again after the holidays!

City Limits is not your average diner. It is more like a large restaurant in appearance, service and menu. It has a full service menu containing some very innovative dishes. Service has always been pleasant and efficient. The food is very good whether it is an egg salad sandwich or a salmon steak. The bakery is on a par with... More

Looks like a diner, feels like a diner, but the food is generally more interesting. The service is generally attentive, the food is quite good. It's a little more expensive then the neighborhood diner. My only negative is the noise. It's a very big, open space, and when it's crowded (as it usually is) you have to speak up.
