Could be so incredible. It's not. Wish it was farm to table, fresh, less greasy, fresh tasting. It's heavy, greasy, generic. Coffee is gross. Rather overpriced for a greasy diner. A little change would go a long way. It does the job if you want a breakfast. If you want a great breakfast, the other local coffee shops offer tastier... More

We ate there twice, the first day we were early, the service was strong and the food was hot. The 2nd day when we went back was a little later and whether it was because they were busy I don't know but the service was slow and the food was just average. On the other hand it's just a diner... More

Great breakfast - fast service and food was hot and delicious. Many options to choose from and both breakfast and lunch are available all day.

Service was decent but, what they call biscuits and gravy is not biscuits and gravy. The gravy was thick, coagulated, and tasted of just flour and pepper, no sausage to be found. Sausage gravy is easy and basic and they got it wrong all the way through.

I had the Diner breakfast and it was wonderful. My sister had the corned beef hash. Both plates were delicious and the service was excellent. All the staff was very friendly.

Crowded even at 9:30 on a Monday morning. The counter seats are great, with photos of Golden from the 1860s until today. The pork green chili was excellent, and for $4.95 you can get a big breakfast burrito with sausage, bacon, eggs, and potatoes smothered in green chili. Definitely recommend!

This place was great for a couple of 4. I had the BAMJO - bacon, avocado, Monterey Jack omelet. It is served with hash browns and toast. Food was fantastic and fresh. Would highly recommend for breakfast.

I rely on these reviews to determine where we eat when traveling and mostly it works out great but sometimes we have a miss, as we did at the Golden Diner. Pros: it was walking distance from our hotel and our waiter/waitress did a good job. Cons: The diner is small with no seating for 5 people. We expected to... More
