This is home cooking with you having to cook! The menu is extensive. It's hard to make a choice. The food is good and arrives hot. Good service as well.

Six of us went here for breakfast. We were promptly seated by the host in a spacious, well lighted, and clean dining area. Our waiter must have had a memorable evening because taking care of us was not his priority. Though he was pleasant, he seemed to disappear at times. Besides not knowing who received which plate, he had to... More

John's is a Real Diner. A varied menu, but the diner basics are the best. The service is always very good, the food good, and it's almost always open,

If you want a great substantial size meal for a reasonable price, you must stop at John's Plain N' Fancy Diner in Quakertown located on Route 309 going south! One of the largest and heaviest menus in the area with numerous selections to choose from! Great lunch specials for $6.95 with desert and above all just great "Plain N' Fancy"... More

My wife and I have eaten here many times before, but haven't been back for a few years. Last night we decided to stop in for dinner, big mistake. I ordered broiled scallops and my wife ordered stuffed broiled shrimp. I started eating the scallops and realized that they were all the same size and had a weird texture. Looking... More

This diner looks great from the outside and not so bad inside. The service was great, the food was just ok. Don't try the crab cakes & my scrapple was like a greasy sponge. I think there's way too much on the menu. Perfecting a few items is always better than too much variety. My last issue is the bathroom,... More

Very good breakfast selection at good prices. Quite busy particularly with regulars. They have lots of combination breakfast deals which make for excellent values.

While this dinner was clean, it left much to be desired as far as the food & service goes. My husband had the Mediterranean Pork Chops, Potato soup & the salad bar. The salad bar was nice & the soup was okay, but the pork chops were dry & tough, with not much flavor at all. I ordered the Mexican... More

We stopped in Yesterday for a late lunch. There were several other people in the diner. To my surprise they started sweeping floors & raising dust while we checked the menu. Shortly after our food was served they gentleman started to mop the floor next to our booth. Nothing like the smell of wet mop with your lunch. I am... More
