“Old time eatery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

The food is good, but the atmosphere is funky: old and seems like it needs some cleaning and fresh paint..

“Not as clean as I would like”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I know there are lines to get in to Deans, but I can not sit and eat in this restaurant again until the ketchup spots have been chiseled off the walls. There is just too much 'old dirt' in this place for me to be able to concentrate on there apparently amazing omlettes.

“Popular local diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Deans is an old school cafe/diner frequented by regular locals with regular jobs. A bit dark in inside, and you are stepping back 30-40 years in time when you enter. But suited me well - friendly staff extensive menu (mainly omelet variations) - nice banquet booths, large portions and low prices.
