Great breakfasts

My family and I enjoyed a breakfast meal and the staff was friendly and attentive. Even the owner- manager was there and welcomed us and got us seated promptly . We would definitely return for dining when we are in the area! You will be given superior service and food. ENJOY!

After reading numerous reviews I finally decided to give it a shot. Ordered the Louisiana skillet and i was overly impressed. I was expecting 2-3 small shrimp, instead i think i got about 6-7 pretty nice shrimp. The tilapia was "meh", but overall i was pleased and will definitely go back.

The breakfast is so so. The food is not bad but bland. The lunch is pretty good which sounds strange. The service is average.

We love the diner. Their brisket breakfast tacos are amazing. Pair that with a side of pancakes or french toast and you are set!

This was a great choice! The food was very good (East Texas Skillet) and our service was excellent. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated, but that's not bad for the weekend before Christmas. We had to take the leftovers home because of the size of the portions.

Known for their great breakfast served until 2 P.M. They have a nice variety of other dishes as well. My favorite is the blackened tilapia. Mostly American fare at reasonable prices. Burgers,sandwiches, salads, etc.

In town with several family members for a wedding. The Diner is obviously a popular location, but we were seated within 15 minutes. Many choices on the menu, both sweet and savory. French toast stuffed with sausage, eggs, and cheese, Cinnamon bun pancakes, chocolate and peanut butter crepes, brisket omelet all made their way to our table and every selection... More

This Diner has been going strong for years now and I'm so glad it is, because it is the best breakfast spot in town. I love the veggie benedict, their french toast and the #1 egg combo is also a go-to favorite. Friendly and fast service, great atmosphere and comfy booths, this spot is always packed but the wait is... More

Super clean, friendly place to grab breakfast. I had the sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit. Both my mom and husband had omelets with toast and hash browns. Everything came out hot and tasty. I would come here again for breakfast!
