A great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! The wait staff was outstanding, very friendly, outgoing, and service with an aim to please. We had to wait for a table but it moved fast. We had the 'All American' & 'Big Dot' breakfasts and recommend...both to quality, quantity, & great taste. Not showy, not fancy, but good food, at a good price, and a casual dining experience.More

This place is right outside the airport so it is handy to get food after a flight. The interior is too small for dining in, but it is great for food to go. They are understaffed so expect a bit of a wait. The quality...of the food is good and the prices are reasonable.More

As a long time customer it’s sad to see. Specials are not special, food quality and portions shrinking. Staff very distant from the past. Not worth going, as a former 2-4 time a week customer. Formerly included drinks with specials, or a salad etc now...it costs 6.00 more for 2 to eat. Obviously smaller portions, and staff are affected by fewer people in just the last month or so. 6pm on Friday 2 tables, was there last Monday at 7 and 1 table. Probably done with DotsMore

Went here by chance - will be back by choice! Great diner and felt VERY safe! Waitress cleaned everything and then some. She took care of all the customers and with a smile! The food was fantastic! I had the cajun omelet (her suggestions) and...it didn't disappoint. The biscuits were fantastic. It's typical diner food menu, but not typical taste. It's a must stop here place!More

Dot's Diner is a cute place to grab home-cooked breakfast, soups, burgers and sandwiches. Hot lunch/dinner specials too. A place to find liver and onions in Nola.
