A must stop for good food and customer service! Breakfast here is our favorite! Nice to sit on the patio and enjoy the great outdoors and small hometown feeling!👍

This restaurant has not disappointed me yet. Within walking distance to our hotel and the Kern River, Cheryl's diner offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it's always good. This time we had breakfast and as usual, it was yummy.

Really good Americano Breakfast - omelets, pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage, biscuits, gravy, chicken fried steak. Decent Oatmeal. Lunch wise, good too. Basic Americano. I had the club sandwich - delicious. Fries were so-so. Overall, the value is good. The salads and fruits are average or less - very basic. The food is a solid B and the prices are mid-range....

Rueban sandwich or Patty melt, can't go wrong. Service is always friendly and prompt. Family run restaurant, the employees really care.

Food was good, got all of our orders correct and did a great job of feeding a group of 17 and getting us out to the river quickly.

Best place in town!! Friendly service, home cooked food. We love to visit this place when we're in town, blueberry pancakes and their Friday night all you can eat fish is the best!!

My husband and I have been to Cheryl's diner once before and the food was great, so this time, we brought friends. Cheryl's diner did not disappoint. I think everyone got a hamburger, and we all enjoyed it. If your in Kernville, this is the place to stop for a bite.

This is very conveniently located next to where we were staying. The food is really good and they'll cook your eggs to order. It's a busy spot and the service can be a little slow at times, but if you go with that in mind, you'll enjoy your meal that much more. Owned by a family and staff are all... More
