This is by far the best breakfast I have ever had. I find awesome diners all over the place when I travel, but none has ever equaled the Owl Diner, especially when you add in local ambiance. The pancakes are absolutely buttermilk soaked and delicious and the omelettes are to die for. Plus, the price is right!

Great diner experience and locals place. Breakfast is delicious and lots of it. Very popular for police and firefighters, politicians and just plain regular people.

Set in an old stainless and formica diner car. Juke boxes on the tables. Thick local accents. Baked beans for breakfast. Easy access, lots of parking.

This restaurant has been around forever and it is owned by a family who owe other "diners" in the area. The food has always been good when I have been there and the portions are generous. Remember to bring cash because they do not take credit cards.
