Not your Father's diner ....

City Limits Diner is definitely not your father's diner ! It is definitely the "next generation" in diner-like dining.

Went to have lunch with a friend and found the food good,not great but very expensive. The atmosphere is very nice and the parking lot is always very busy but for a diner it is very expensive.The restaurant was crowed and loud and we felt rushed to eat and get out.

I enjoyed breakfast here one morning with my husband. They had delicious Belgium waffles! The prices were a bit higher than your average diner but we enjoyed everything.

City Limits Diner is the best, most convenient diner in the area. Sure there are other diners but they are all your run of the mill places that smell like ham and bacon (not a pleasant aroma considering I am a vegetarian). The prices are good. Centrally located. Good food. Good atmosphere. All around highly recommend for friends and for... More

can get just as good a meal at any number of local diners. City Limits wants to be the "upscale" diner. It has some "upscale" features - none of which justify its outrageous prices.

Better than the average diner. Consistently solid with good service. Quite busy on the weekends. Try the salmon eggs Benedict

This up-scale diner has something for everyone at every meal. Food is consistently good. Can be VERY crowded, even though it is a big place. It's always just a little more expensive than I think it should be, but the convenient local and ability to easily seat large groups calls us back.

Very solid choice for all meals. Great location but parking is tight when busy. Baked products are very good.

Have been to the establishment across from The County Center numerous times. The food is excellent and the place is bustling without being too noisy. Breakfast has always been great with the Huevos Rancheros a perfect hangover fix! Coffee could use a lift its weak. Dinner entrees are eclectic but well prepared and the presentation is excellent. Post renovation the... More
