Should be featured on diners, drivins and dives.

Typical diner type location. Vast menu, all day breakfast, large portions and much of the food is made from scratch, particularly their Cream pies. Open till 11 every night and open 24 hrs Friday and Saturday. Service was friendly and efficient. I will eat at these again, too bad they are pretty... read more

Dee's is a local diner chain that serves much the type and variety of food found at Denny's. But the food is fresher and more tasty. And it's one of the few restaurants of any type that are open 24 hours. The decor is retro, and it seems there are an unlimited number of booths. We have always been seated... More

It was not good. Service was horrible and the quesadilla was not even done. Soup was tasty and salad ok. But not enough to make me go back

Great local spot in Salt Lake. There are a few of these diners. Like a denny's, affordable diner menu, open late or even all night I believe. It's a local favorite, nothing fancy, just good food for a reasonable price. Clean too!

After seeing the lines at the more popular breakfast restaurants in Salt Lake, we decided to head to Dee's for Mother's Day. Our family has been going to Dee's ever since I was a child, but I have to admit it has been a very long time since I have been there. I was pleasantly surprised at both the quality... More

I believe Dee's is one of the oldest joints in SLC but they haven't lost it even one bit over the years. I was a little suspect upon my first visit - rotating sign with old-style lights, too cheap to believe special posted on the roof board, BUT ... I was nothing but pleased. Dee's is awesome. Old style diner... More

Another local hangout, mainly for people who don't care about what they eat. The servers are accommodating enough, but the food isn't, i.e., by the time it arrives, the hash browns are luke warm at best, the melted cheese on the "California Omlette" has solidified (I had to cut mine with a knife). Decades ago, Dee's was famous for their... More

Looking for a quick, inexpensive cafe for a solo dinner and stumbled across Dee's, and glad I did. Sure, it is typical cafe fare. Sure, the price was reasonable. Yup, I left satisfied...And glad I did!

Another place that makes me wonder how they are possibly still in business. I am guessing that location has a lot to do with it as it's not the food, ambiance, or service.
