Had Western Omelette sandwich. More toast than omelette. Potato chips at breakfast? Looked like end of the bag of chips....crumbs. This is a cash only place. Good thing I had some. Overall, a so so breakfast that left me still hungry.

I love diners, love the American heritage of diners. Frost is unspoiled Americana. And the food is excellent. Any wait here is because of the crowd and worth it. I'll be back for more.

We go here like twice a week. Awesome old-school greasy spoon. Great breakfast and Lunch. Sit at the counter by the griddle and watch all the food sizzle away. A rarity in restaurants, they have delicious tuna salad. Perfect for hangovers, when you're still drinking, your picky-eater Mom and everything in between. As an added bonus, it seems like they...

Frosts has been in Warrenton for more than 40 years. It is affectionately known as "the aluminum room" as this is a real dinner. The younger generation doesn't know about breakfast of eggs, bacon and grease but this is it and once in a while it really doesn't hurt you. This is the way everyone used to eat, believe it... More

Good things: friendly staff, decently broad menu, decent prices. On the other hand: no so good things: parking is horrendous, dining area is very crowded and only 1 cook whether there are 4 or 40 diners. But you learn this on the first visit. Why come back? Because it is the only restaurant in this area that I found that... More

Yes, it is an authentic 50's diner - so you should know what to expect when you go there! Breakfast anytime is the best around. I also like the daily soup, especially the vegetable, bean and ham and chicken noodle. We always get prompt attentive service and enjoy watching the servers banter with some of the regulars. Sit at the... More

Typical silver-sided diner of the 1940s and 50s but not many originals left. I usually go for breakfast and they never disappoint. May see bank presidents sitting next to plumbers or construction workers; all regulars. Sit at the counter and watch the grill cook work his/her magic. Good food 24 hours a day. Do not miss the opportunity to stop... More

Lovely 1950's diner in Warrenton. Has booths as well as counter stools. Open 24 hrs a day. I had a great breakfast of fried eggs and and a waffle. Enjoyed watching the short order cook. If you l8ked old style you will love it, if not go to IHOP.

Good food, reasonable prices, and open 24-7! A Warrenton institution for many, many years! Great burgers and fries, also try that BBQ sandwich with coleslaw.
