The sign says "Voted #1. . ." But it must not have been based on the food. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad and the prices were reasonable but it was pretty much fast food. We had breakfast. My wife had a Mushroon a and Swiss Cheese Omelette which came with a single slice of cheap processed cheese slice.

Breakfast is served all day, and under... More

I've been to the Main Street Diner twice now and the food was awesome both times. I do not know about other menu items but both times I had breakfast there it was great food. I thought it reminded me of the restaurants my grandma and grandpa would take me when I was little. No over the top prices on... More

I just visited the Main Street Diner over the weekend for the first time since summer, it is still beyond amazing! Absolutely loved the breakfast I was served! The service was great and friendly! The restaurant was clean and still had all the great memorabilia! Definitely will be going back more often from now on!

Stopped by the Main Street Diner for coffee and breakfast this morning. Must say the serving staff was great, my coffee cup stayed full. If you are looking for good food done fast this is the place. I would highly recommend this diner to anyone visiting the city looking for good food and a fun time.
