“Diner in the Heart of Sioux Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

The half Bacon Benny was beyond my expectations for diner fare. The prices were a bit steep for breakfast however the location along a historic Sioux Falls stretch of road was perfect. The sculptures outside of Phillips Ave. Diner are truly sights to see. The service was OK. The food and coffee were excellent which is what the diner is known for. I highly recommend stopping here for a bite to eat. The portions were just right. The hash browns were buttery and crispy perfection. The orange juice is fresh squeezed. More B & B than diner grub. Enjoy!

“COMFORT FOOD!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Want a cozy place for some great comfort food...this is the place. If you enjoy authentic malts and sodas you must give this diner a try.

“Nice atmosphere, food was average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We were a bit disappointed because the diner had been rated #2 in all of the Sioux Falls restaurants. Maybe our expectations were too high with this rating. The food was average at best. We were at the diner around 1pm on a Sunday and had about a 30 minute wait, which was not that bad....but again we thought the food would be something special. We probably would not go back to this diner if the our travels took us back to Sioux Falls.

“Fall salad was amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Picture grilled to order chicken breast, bleu cheese crumbles, walnuts, fresh pear slices, dried cherries and greens. This was the delicious special fall salad. My husband also loved his loaded chili. Cinnamon bread pudding was a great dessert. Service was good. We had to wait for a table on Sunday noon when most downtown restaurants are closed, but it was worth it.
