This place is a very cool and retro diner. The seating is three giant u shaped bars, so you will be sitting next to people you may not know, but they all seemed friendly. Staff was all nice and attentive and reminded me of the show Mel's dinner, only with a younger staff. I ordered a 1/4 hamburger with fries... More

I absolutely love this place. It's a fun retro throwback of the 1950's diner. They have a fantastic breakfast menu that is so reasonably priced. The burgers are massive and delicious. A huge menu and great prices. A must in delaware!

This is your classic "greasy spoon" restaurant. Burgers, fries, chicken and breakfast menu at any time of the day. If it is on the menu and they are open, the are serving anything on the menu. Food is good quality, not cheap by-products. An above average 1/4 pound hamburger with fries and a soda will run you $9. The atmosphere... More

I started eating here years ago because of the prices. I used to get the biscuits and gravy and a huge chocolate shake made in one of those old machines that gave you about two and a half glasses of shake. They put the whole blender on the counter for you. My brother from out of state was amazed at... More

Went recently on Saturday for lunch. The walls have been painted, bathrooms remodeled, and they are now serving beer! The food was still amazing and the service was the best I've had there. They now have one person that runs the cash register so you don't have to wait on the servers to pay. Everything just looked cleaner and brighter,... More

Was looking forward to eating here again, as it had been a few years. Service was good, and place was busy with lots of OWU students. I ordered a burger and fries, and was disappointed in the fries. Burger was great, lots of fresh pickles, and the bun was good too. But the fries were swimming in oil, and I... More

I am a very regular reviewer on Trip Advisor and have never had to write such a negative one...but this one is well deserved. Two couples traveling north for the weekend; saw the reviews on Yelp and decided to give it a try. The positives...great location centrally on a Main Street through Delaware. Upon entering its a throwback in time...really... More

Whenever I am in Delaware, I always stop at the Hambuger Inn. I love going for breakfast on a Saturday morning. It's a chance to get reacquainted with what is going on locally. All of the wait staff greet you with a friendly smile and the customers patiently wait for their turn to be seated. I wish we had a... More

My husband and I were on our way from Indianapolis to Northeast Ohio. We were not traveling the interstates. I checked the Tripadvisor Delaware, Ohio website and saw the Hamburger Inn listed. We decided to try it since it was open on Sundays. We had never noticed this place on several trips through Delaware. Actually it had no sign outside,... More

Have been there for breakfast and lunch on at least 3 different occasions with the same satisfied results, content and wanting to return to eat there again as soon as possible. Week-end breakfast is busy, had to wait for seats, but the manager served drinks to you while you waited for a seat. The atmosphere is a slice of Americana... More
