Best Bacon in town we usually go for the gravy and biscuits but the service and foods seems to be slacking from the past. so they might want to get a handle on these issues. maybe the server just had a wild friday night. Talked to someone who eat hamburger steaks last night and they said they were really good.... More

I have ordered the Lottaburger basket twice and really enjoyed it. The burger is big and fresh (cheese is extra), fries are crinkle cut and crispy and the cole slaw is very good too. The service is prompt, decor truly is diner-style and the prices are reasonable. I definitely recommend the Rebel and will return.

Found this place as a ta search. Initial non-food smell at front door is not very nice but when seated you only notice the great coffee, food and service. Eggs, biscuits, gravy, french toast and hash browns are five star. Bacon is three star as it was way too brown and almost burnt for me. Service friendly and fast but... More

When we first moved to Cleveland in 1978 we met Emory and Ruby Bryant, owners of the Rebel drive-in. We went to church with them and became good friends. Emory told me on more than one occasion that he was not going to have the restaurant open on Sundays even though other restaurant owners told him he couldn't 'make it'... More

My son and myself make it there for lunch on Saturdays..Remember they close at 2pm though. I always have their Lottaburger and Homemade Onion Rings. They have doubles, pattymelts and great chili. This is a hidden, local treasure of Cleveland that any visitor should stop by and try.This place beats all of the burger chains by far.

We love eating here for breakfast and if we are anywhere in the area we make this our breakfast stop. I have eaten lunch here too, the Lottaburgers are fantastic, but the gravy and biscuits keep us coming back. It has a great small town feel. Service has always been good too.
