“Food is ok but slow!!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Good things: friendly staff, decently broad menu, decent prices. On the other hand: no so good things: parking is horrendous, dining area is very crowded and only 1 cook whether there are 4 or 40 diners. But you learn this on the first visit. Why come back? Because it is the only restaurant in this area that I found that I put into the category of Indiana Truck Stop Food: not great, not great for you but you won't leave hungry or broke. So in a rush, Mac Donald's is down the street. Got some time? Grab a bar stool and watch the magic happen.

“The Real Deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Yes, it is an authentic 50's diner - so you should know what to expect when you go there! Breakfast anytime is the best around. I also like the daily soup, especially the vegetable, bean and ham and chicken noodle. We always get prompt attentive service and enjoy watching the servers banter with some of the regulars. Sit at the counter to watch the skill of the cook at the grill or take a booth with the jukebox selector and feel like you are stepping back in time. It is our go to spot for breakfast and lunch! Real Americana at its best!

“Old fashioned Virginia comfort food expeienced in a historic Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Typical silver-sided diner of the 1940s and 50s but not many originals left. I usually go for breakfast and they never disappoint. May see bank presidents sitting next to plumbers or construction workers; all regulars. Sit at the counter and watch the grill cook work his/her magic. Good food 24 hours a day. Do not miss the opportunity to stop and enjoy this time in history. Warning: on weekends there may be a line outside for breakfast!

“Old Style Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Lovely 1950's diner in Warrenton. Has booths as well as counter stools. Open 24 hrs a day. I had a great breakfast of fried eggs and and a waffle. Enjoyed watching the short order cook. If you l8ked old style you will love it, if not go to IHOP.
