“Not good value for money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Four of us visited for a Sunday Brunch. The Bacon was pre cooked and then DEEP FRIED whick made it rock hard. The Fried Bread w.as undercooked, soggy and pale. Baked Beans were barely warm. Definately not value for money :(

“Good food but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

A tasty meal but felt it was rather expensive. The decor a bit plastic feeling. Not my favourite place.

“Good value, roadside diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere in the diner.
Service very slow and waiters/waitress' aren't very attentive! Had to wait a long time for our drinks. Food was plentiful, all you expect from a roadside diner! Could do with a good clean and waiters need some lessons in manners. Don't expect 5 stars !!

“Man VS Food - in Cornwall . . .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

After driving past this place more times than I like to remember, and watching 'Man VS Food' upon returning home from work, the better half and I decided to give this restaurant a visit.

Let me first begin by telling you what this place isn't - it's not 'gourmet' and most definitely not unfriendly or pretentious. Now what this place is is GREAT - if you are aware of what American cuisine constitutes then a visit here will not disappoint! I had a cheese burger and a side of onion rings, both in true american style: over sized portions, moreish tastes and as much cheese in the bun as burger, and my fair lady had a BBQ chicken: again LARGE and moreish - exactly what you'd expect from an American style diner. The service we received was fast and efficient - very American, and our overall dining experience was a very positive one.

While I won't be rushing back in a hurry, largely because of my newly acquired love handles due to the portion sizes, I will definitely visit the place again when a hankering for a decent, American style burger gets the better of me.

Thanks for a lovely meal Route 38!
