“Neighborhood feel - good dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere is warm and simple. My dinner was chicken fried chicken, with potato, salad, hot vegetable and toast; and all was very good. Very reasonably priced. Service was warm and good. Staff is friendly. It was recommended by local hotel staff. I will return.

“Great home cooking in a friendly atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

Just finished lunch here and enjoyed our hot vegetable soup and grilled chicken sandwich. But my GPS didn't take us quite far enough headed south. Look for this cozy place with around 14 tables adjacent to the Best Western Inn at McAlister. Our total bill with two large iced teas was only $11.99--good food and good value (and we are PICKY). The waitress (owner?) knows almost everyone by name who walks in the door. Easy off and on from US 69 and easy to park.

“Local Diner with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My husband drive through on our way to Arkansas. Decided to try a local restaurant instead of a chain for lunch. This is a small place and it is definitely laid out like a diner. They were short on wait staff this day and the woman that was running the show did an excellent job. The food here is good. I had chicken fried steak and my husband had the special hamburger steak with onion gravy. It was a nice change from fast food. The prices are good. I recommend if you are looking for some home cooking.

“The Diner by Best Western”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We enjoyed both a dinner and a lunch at this little diner. The food was great with a definite home-style feel to it. The waitress and other staff seemed to have a great time doing their job which made the visit pleasurable.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

The people are so friendly and it's like the old "Mom&Pop's" restaurant-service is always fast and with a smile! Somthing I've found is rare these days.
