It's a restaurant that is visited by many. Food and employees are great. Menu has choices for all types of likes. I've only had their breakfast. They do close at 2pm.

We came to try this restaurant based on the recommendation of a local source. The place look like that it has been at this location for a long time. The décor was very interesting, There were many plaques with many wise quotes on the walls. It looks like a very comfortable place for brunch. I had the chili verde with... More

Lisa's is the place to come for breakfast when you want a big, delicious, slippery, salty, can't possibly be good for you breakfast.

This place doesn't look like much, but we've lived in Covina for nearly 30 years and this unassuming diner on San Berdoo Road has outlasted many more trendy restaurants. Great omelets, above average breakfast meats, great service (Lisa is very friendly), and authentic 50's ambiance from dozens of wall memorabilia.

The food was delicious and the service awesome. The food a little pricey then what I'm used to in a Cafe. But overall, I would go back

My grandfather used to call places like this "a greasy spoon". He would have loved Lisa's. He rated any breakfast joint by the biscuits and gravy they served. Not only do they serve it rich and tasty with chunks of sausage, but their biscuits are fluffy and delicious. I have also had their veggie scramble (you can order it as... More

This is a great little diner who's owner has a wonderful big smile EVERYTIME you walk thru the door! Their breakfast menu runs from classic Americana fare to yummy Mexican green chili burritos. The burgers are delicious and all of their sandwiches are quite good. The sign reads "Lisa's", but the owners name is actually Cindy!

We come here for a great breakfast. The owner is very friendly and is always in great spirits. My sisters and I love this place. I believe it is open from 6 a.m to 2 or 3 p.m. That's fine by us.

We live around the corner from this restaurant so we finally decided to stop by since it always seemed busy. We had breakfast and the food was okay. There was nothing special about the food. The service was good and the atmosphere was great but we wouldn't go back because we know of other better breakfast places
