Soo much better than the run of the mill chain restaurant for breakfast food. Some really good options and benedicts to choose from. Really enjoyed my meal, wish I had room for more food! My one complaint is that they are so popular and packed, if you go by yourself, they might put you in the back corner against the... More

I found this place on Yelp (not TA) and we tried it for breakfast on a recent trip through Tyler. This place has an amazing menu; blackened tilapia omelette for example. I had the brisket omelette with side of bacon. This was excellent; the hash browns were good but not great. Coffee was just OK. Service was very good. My... More

This was our first visit but it won't be our last. I just wish they were open past 2pm. The food and service were absolutely wonderful. We're going to try breakfast next time. All the food looks and tastes homemade. The biscuits have little bits of butter throughout, you don't get that out of a can.

Nothing special except the service, but it was good. Tried the King Ranch Chicken casserole, it was more like a dip than a meal, that was a recommendation, but others with me got other items and found them really good.

Awesome breakfast. Omelets were great and fruit was fresh. Pancakes were bigger than expected. Overall better than Ihop and Dennys

We went there for breakfast and were seated by the window and right under an AC vent. We asked if we could move to a warmer table but the waiter told us there were no other tables. I went to the bathroom a few minutes later and saw half a dozen free tables. Anyway my wife ordered 3 breakfast taco's,... More

Just had breakfast with my wife and together we ate 2 sausage links 2 bacon strips 4 pieces of French toast a water and a sweet tea and it only cost $23! What a steal after purging my 401k and selling my beach house I will go back again! 10/10 will go bankrupt just to still be hungry again.

I have yet to find anything to dislike about the Diner. It's very clean, the food is plentiful (I almost always bring some home from my breakfast), if you don't want all the carbs you can substitute fruit. Even though the staff is very busy they always serve you in a speedy fashion with a smile on their faces.

It was my first visit and even though it was lunchtime, the breakfast menu won out. The omelet was fantastic and it came with French toast - awesome!! I highly recommend this restaurant and will be going back soon.
