We love weekend Specials. The portabella mushroom omelet is superb. The old fashioned country fried steak options are there. But they try to offer beyond the basics..

Convenient to hotels. Came back a second time during my visit to this area. I tried their best fried chicken and it was good. Prices were fair.

Ordered fried chicken dinner, it was a little bloody. So I sent it back. Unfortunatly, it was the last chicken dinner they had. They deceided to fix it up instead. However, they did offer that if I wasn't happy with it that they would replace it. I cant complain,they even gave me a free desert! I would recommend this place... More

Went in for a quick lunch. There were a lot of people there. Good service and meal arrived quick. My hamburger was kind of dry but was flavorful. A bit high for what I got and they didn't have senior menu or specials.

Strap yourself into your time machine and enjoy traditional and creative cuisine in this relaxing and roomy diner. Pumpkin pancakes can be substituted for traditional ones for a slight price increase in their pancake special that includes an egg and bacon. A bit pricey, but worth it. Restrooms are clean and accessible.

Throw back to the 1950's and 60's but with excellent cooks and specials made just like home cooked meals. Have the Fried Chicken or the Tri Tip. They make their own pastrami and its well worth trying. Good place for breakfast as well.

Having already been on the road 3 and a half hours and with another two and a half hours ahead of us, we opted to stop at Milts for a bite around 11am. It was hugely disappointing that the timing of the orders was all wrong, after waiting over 40 minutes for any food, my French toast then appeared a... More

You'll look at the outside of this little throwback to the 60's and ask yourself "Why did that guy give this place a 5-star review?". Then you'll order the fried chicken dinner. And you'll answer your own question "OMG!"
