This is one of two Dot's diners. This is the only one that serves Nepalese lunch items, which I have not tried. The breakfast items are very solid and well priced. Their biscuits are some of the best outside of the South. Great service.

Dot's appeared to check most of the boxes- diner, hometown feel, locals, cheap, open early. I really hate to rate a local diner poorly- except they could have been so much better with some attention to service and freshness. What we got was a rather...More
