Good, plain food

This diner is perfect if you want "Mom's cooking". Inexpensive, the owner and staff are friendly. Love having lunch here.

This restaurant is on the North part of town, near a mall. I only saw one waitress, and she indeed was SuperWaitress. She could definitely multi-task, and did it well, with a smile. There were onion rings on my chopped steak, and they could not have been any better.....delicious. We ended our meal with lemon meringue pie, and it too... More

This is a good, old-fashioned kind of luncheonette. The menu is primarily sandwiches, which is fine for lunch, and actually quite a variety of them to choose from. I the chicken and broccoli which was very tasty. The service was pretty good -- I didn't have any special requests, so the waitress covered things just fine. Unless I was dying... More

We were on a 30 day road trip across the USA. It's amazing how many times you get stuck eating fast food. After a few days, we were craving hot sandwiches with mashed potatoes and gravy. Fanny Horner's was just the ticket! For 3.99 (senior menu) we had our choice of hot roast beef, turkey or meatloaf sandwich with gravy... More

The bunch of us went to Fannies for breakfast. The service was great. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was comfortable and not too loud. I would recommend Fannies to anyone. Plus, the kids liked the name.

Fanny Horner's is OK for breakfast I have never eaten lunch or dinner their. Its a little rough around the edges and honestly you could cook most of it at home. However, if you don't feel like doing dishes or just want to go out after church on Sunday its not a bad place to go usually its not quite... More

This was my punishment for going against my fellow Trip Advisor collegues. We were originally thinking of going elsewhere and for some inexplicable reason decided to try Fanny Horners. BIG MISTAKE. Service was dreadfully slow. None of the food was "home cooked". It all was instant, heat/re-heat foods. The country fried steak was something out of a school cafeteria. The... More

Loved the service and location. The food was hot and fresh and priced very resonable. We had breakfast for dinner, which really sounded good to us, glad we did.
