This is a delicious family operated restaurant. The French toast has been featured in southern magazines and for good reason too. If you eat something less on the sweet side the omelets are very tasty too. Good service, great food, affordable prices. It's a place we will become regulars at for sure!

This is a diner (like the name says); so these comments are for a diner. You can't compare this to a full service restaurant. And for a diner, it's very good. It could very well be the "best breakfast in Tyler" as they say on their menu. Our only downgrade is for the rather dark ambiance. It's a little more... More

Short and curly black hair on the side with the Pollo Blanco! Towel lint on hash-brown plate. Server was not busy but had a lack of interest in ensuring our meal was ordered correctly, or that we had basic things like water and napkins. Menu is high fat and high sugar. But not horrible food or atmosphere. Definitely questioning cleanliness!

We stopped in for breakfast last Saturday. Our 1st visit. We were seated within 3 minutes. The omelets we ordered were outstanding, as was the service. We will be back. The 20 mile drive was worth it to us.

Can't visit Tyler without having breakfast at The Diner. Always good food and good service. We 3 all had different menu items and all looked great. Mine was. The chicken fried steak had a light crisp crust and so tender it could be cut with a fork. Yum

This is a great place to have breakfast food! I love the omelets! I also at times eat the humongous Texas hot dog. It has a wide variety of options and most are pretty good.

My wife visited "The Diner" on three occasions and were very disappointed each time. We found the restaurant through coupons sold by a local school. The first time we tried to use a coupon we found out that there was a time stipulation, it had to be after 4:00 pm. We read the fine print and sure enough it was... More

There was nothing great about the food. I want to eat something that tastes better than what I can cook and this was no better.

I like the atmosphere of the restaurant. However the food is nothing special. I would rather go to IHOP or The Egg and I.

Recently the restaurant has stopped the night time meal, but breakfast and lunch are delicious here. My son loves the chicken fried steak omelet! The desserts are delicious, so you'll have to go easy on the servings or share some items to save room for dessert. Attentive staff has always been friendly and helpful.
