Why don't we go here more often?

My husband and I love to go out for breakfast. The Tyler area, frankly, doesn't have that great a selection for breakfast. The Diner may not look like the little "Mom & Pop" cafes we associate with great breakfasts, but they do have great breakfasts. First, the number of menu choices is a bit... read more

This is OK but we weren't impressed. The dining area was clean and organized. The ordering process seemed a little unusual not being like a true diner other offering diner food. We only went once.

I am a big advocate of trying out new places that I haven't eaten at before. I eat Chick-Fil-A for breakfast 3-4 times a week. So I wanted to try something new. Found this place by searching Google for Breakfast in Tyler. First thing that caught my eye was the variety and extensive menu. So I called in a to-go... More

We went for Memorial Day lunch. We arrived about 12:45 and were quickly seated. We so hoped for another good experience like we had had a while back. That did not happen today. Our waiter seemed to have a bad attitude and serving us was not on his menu. He took our order then returned to make adjustments for what... 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

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
