“No nonsense - a real old-fashioned diner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Flo's has been one of our favorite diners for many years. We don't go to save money - we live over 30 miles away. Gas is not cheap. A menu that pleases just about anyone. Breakfast all day, great covered sandwiches, hearty soups. The staff has our beverages ready as soon as we sit down. Very attentive and helpful.

Flo's is not a place that would usually attract the "hoity-toity" diner. A dirt parking lot with puddles and all. But, we don't go there to have valet parking. The food and service are second to none. Just remember it is a DINER. We've never left without a take home container. The quality doesn't suffer because of the portion size either.

I recommend Flo's without hesitation. I'll bet that a couple can't spend $20, including a tip.

Give it a try.

“What you expect a diner to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Nothing fancy, just plenty of good food at reasonable prices. And the 10-cent coffee is pretty good too. Even though it was crowded our meals were delivered in a timely manner. The only thing I didn't like was that they held the check at the register so you don't know how much your meal costs until you leave. I was paying cash and would have preferred the opportunity to have the proper amount ready before getting to the register.

“It's a find! Should be on Guy's "Triple D"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This place is nothing fancy, but it's the home of 10 cent coffee, big portions & great food! The place is always packed at breakfast, lunch & dinner time. It's a place to enjoy home cooked meals at a VERY reasonable price. One time my husband & I and another couple went there for breakfast & it was less than $10.00 Check it out! Service is great too.
Flo also has a Sunday brunch.

“Come One, Come All!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I am very picky when it comes to going out for dinner. Flo's Diner meets the requirements of every level possible. The place is full of laughter, locals (very kind and helpful), great service, and of course the amazing food. Would eat there for any reason. There deep fry everything there, whether it be chicken, fish, veggies, etc. The prices are amazing also.

“Always packed and pushing out food at a fast pace.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in one morning on my way home for some quick breakfast and that's exactly what I got. If you like diners and dives, this is both! The service was fast even though the place had every seat filled. The food was exactly what I had hoped for-a diner breakfast with no frills and no fuss. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly and the bill was cheap! And How can you go wrong with 10¢ coffee?
