very good food options - great breakfast

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... read more

I know it's been around for awhile, but I got to make my first (AND second) trip to The Diner for breakfast. I was immediately regretting never having stooped here before! The staff was wonderful and very helpful, and the food was just amazing! I had the eggs overeasy and French toast, and both were simply delicious! I recommend that... More

True to the name, this place serves diner-like fare with a friendly staff and great atmosphere. The food is excellent and I've never left hungry or disappointed. Just like any restaurant, they get busy, but all things considered, I would recommend The Diner to anyone.

Expected better...very average. Small servings, no seasonings on hash browns..simply taken from a bag of shredded potatoes.. Store bought wheat bread. And no presentation. My plate had one egg, one piece of bacon, a small serving of hash browns and one slice of toast on a small plate. A strawberry would have brightened the plate Kids loved the pancakes. $2.50... 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.

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
