My friend & I ate here on our way back to the airport. We both had the buffalo burger & waffle fries. The burger was very flavorful & moist. Fries were excellent with the spices on them (my friend gor her fries plain & they were also good,). Service was excellent & fast.

It was on Triple D, so I tried it. Twice. Just couldn't get myself to be a fan though. We shared probably the four most popular breakfast dishes amongst us. Biscuits and Gravy--not impressed and would not order again. Didn't care for the biscuits at all. Small and seemed like a quick bisquick bake. Gravy was ok but nothing memorable.... More

Had the biscuits and gravy...it's the best in town so far. Perfect ratio of gravy and biscuit and great quality! Mocha was good and served in a unique mug. Boyfriend had huevos rancheros omelet described as delicious. Friends had eggs Benedict omelet and loved the bacon inside. Can't wait to go back. Was a bit loud but oh well!

Great place for young people to gather, have some good food and visit. Funky and very noisy atmosphere. Seating not comfortable. Used to like to stop by when younger but not anymore, not comfortable or relaxing in any way. But it's a very popular diner amongst the younger crowd, in the summer it is overflowing on week-ends at breakgast time.... More

I had the chicken verde breakfast burrito and it was the best breakfast burrito that I have ever had. The wait was a little long, but that says a lot about this place's popularity.

The Blue Plate Diner is a solid choice when looking to grab some good diner breakfast in a pinch. While it is mostly a popular breakfast place and lacks the operating hours of a diner proper, the menu is simple and well executed. Breakfast items are the highlight here with generously portioned and well executed omelets, specials, and the typical... More

A very top Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives pick, this place has a young happy charm. I have eaten a lot of corned beef, their corned beef has is simply the best. Most of the menu is under $10, with plentiful plates. Horseradish mashed potatoes were a stand out, as was the salmon (like the corned beef processed on premises). Bohemian... More

Sometimes you find a place cannot possibly live up to it's reputation. Not so for Blue Plate. For the first time in my life I tried Corned Beef Hash and now my concern is anywhere else living up to what I enjoyed. Excellent flavor, excellent service. Just a wonderful overall experience. And I promise you won't leave hungry. Enjoy.

It has a funky vibe and nice outdoor patio, but the food is pretty average, consistently served cooled off, and the server attention to details like coffee is haphazard. Many superior breakfast options nearby that care a lot more about the food and customer experience.
