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

I love diners. Period. Some are great, some are terrible- and some are in between. This one was good- and we would go back. We were about half-way from home and Hamburg, PA where the Cabela's is, and we wanted to stop and get something to eat. Some quick research of restaurants in Quakertown first brought me to Quakertown Family... More

Having been the first time I have eaten at this restaurant - you will have to use your own judgment on my review. We ate at John's Plain N Fancy on this Mother's Day, of course there was a long waiting line, but something we expected on this day. We were seated quickly (there were 3 of us). Pity the... More

I visited John's Plain and Fancy on probably one of their busiest days of the year -- Mother's Day. This may explain some of the issues we had. It took about 10 minutes for the waitress to take our order, but we did have someone bring us coffee in the meantime. I could tell the poor waitress was frazzled! She... More

Good food, reasonable prices, clean and open 24 hours. That is enough to earn 4 stars. The only 'con' is a limited bakery selection. Not bad at all and more than most restaurants for sure but not spectacular.

John's was a delight. Good service, good food in a nice facility. Enjoyed my Creamed Chipped Beef on potatoes. The Cream was tasty and the potatoes were perfect. They handled a family of 3 adults and 4 small children with a smile and lots of help. Very patient and attentive. Good Food for breakfast.

For $8.50 I got a roasted, half chicken, soup, salad bar, large side of broccoli. I would be lying if I said the quality was excellent. The gravy was like something out of a can. Having said that it was a quality meal at a low price, making it an overall very good value.

Stopped here after getting off the Northeast Extension in Q-town. It was cream of broccoli night and we thoroughly enjoyed it. After that and the salad bar, we ended up taking our entree home to eat the next night for dinner and there was plenty! Did have a problem with the card reader--I was not able to use my debit...

John's Plain & Fancy is a very large diner. They have plenty of parking. The menu is very large. We have been there for breakfast, lunch and dinners. The staff is always friendly and service is always good. Everything I ever ordered has been good. So if you want to relax and be waiting on with good service and food... More
