We, as a family, go to the Hot Spot often. It has everything you want in a diner; quick, easy, homestyle food. The coffee is plentiful and the food nice and warm and very tasty. The portions are also very generous. The staff are very friendly and always greet the kids with a smile and a quick hello.

And during the weekdays, there is always a few very good specials listed on the board in their entryway and I have... More

We are regulars, usually for Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast. Servers are consistently good. Lately we avoid breakfast choices with bacon and sausage (bacon has always lacked lacked the great taste bacon should have and the source of their sausage must have changed since it went downhill. Additionally, several months ago the pancakes had an overly-yellow coloring which must have... More

This is fine for diner standards but anything even slightly more than "diner" is not great at all. We loved their standard breakfast (eggs, bacon, pancakes) but when we returned for dinner a few weeks later none of us could eat our meals.

We stopped at the Hot Spot Diner for breakfast one Saturday morning. The waitress was excellent and the breakfast was very good. It is a good value and I would highly recommend this location for breakfast.

Love this Diner! All the servers are friendly and give great service, especially Debbie! We are always greeted with a smile! Last year my youngest daughter and I began having breakfast here once a week while all her brothers and sisters were in school. Now we go each week for lunch after her half day class. The food is always... More

We went for breakfast which was good, but the menu didn't seem very appealing for lunch or dinner. I would go back for breakfast.

Typical diner food with earlybird specials. Wait staff very efficient but can be moody;.......but at least the "mean girl" (original) hostess is not there any more....she was brutal. She would sigh and throw the menus on the table. Never smile! ( how did she get to be hostess?) !Back to food......breakfasts have gotten better....used to ask for bacon well done... More
