“Unique diner experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Went after hearing lots of good things. Such a cool diner experience in the trolley car. The staff was super friendly. We tried a hot dog and a split a burger. The hot dog was good, but I thought the burger was really the thing that made me want to come back. I'll return for sure.

“20 years and another generation later, It is still the BEST!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

It had been 20 years or so since my last visit to Casey's Diner in Natick,MA. Now that I know they are open on Sundays (11am-3pm) I will be going back a LOT sooner! It is a 10 stool Worcester Lunch Car built in 1922 and formerly horse drawn. The next generation of Caseys were running it this day and it seems the same as it did when I was last there. The bright silver hood, copper steamer and original coffee urn, the mosaic tile floor, stools and wooden sliding door are still there. It is a block off of Rts 135 and 27. i have been on a busy weekday when someone is almost sliding under you as you get up to take your stool and a LINE at the takeout window. This Sunday they had just opend and it seems that would be a great time if you have kids in tow. It is on the Historic Register and is a MUST for any true diner fan. Hint( listen to the hot dog lingo after you order, ( down the middle, around the world, etc,) Take your kids and have fun!!

“Its limited, inexpensive, but really popular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Casey's is a Natick institution. Don't expect "gourmet", but you can get really good hot dogs and burgers for very little money. Menu is limited, seating is limited, but every little league team, pop warner team, etc. is there in the summer. People wait in line outside, and they handle the crowds quickly. If you're just looking for a quick burger, and a good one, Casey's is the place.

“Classic Diner Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

I have eaten (dined?) at this great diner on Saturdays for many, many years now and thought that I might say a few words about it. This tiny little place has been around since the 1920s. It draws a very loyal crowd - both locals and others who appreciate quality diner fare. It is truly a small property. One must often wait for one of the dozen or less seats inside. There are no booths. There is also a constant line of
hungry patrons visiting the take-out window. Offering a rather limited menu, this place is known for its steamed hot dogs. Absolutely outstanding, they offer just the right degree of crunch and they just melt in your mouth. Even the rolls are steamed in an antique copper steamer. Just delicious and worth the wait whether you're sitting in or grabbing a few to go. Friendly staff, too.
