When I arrived the only male server on the shift gave the hostess a hard time for seating me in a different section and insisted I should be "his" table. He was clearly rude and disrespectful to all the other staff. He took a bit of time to come to the table with an air that he was doing me... More

Yes, this is a diner. But one of the neat things about a diner is that you can find pretty much anything you want to eat no matter the time of day. Feel like an omelet for dinner? Or more likely a "tastes like Mom made it" meatloaf? The menu is wide ranging. Negatives? Well, the leather seats are sometimes... More

They have good milkshakes, but the food is only passable. Okay place if you are in a hurry and just want a quick sandwich. It carries many memories for people that have lived in Silver Spring for sometime. It is a Silver Spring institution, so to speak

I LOVE Tastee Diner-I have been to several other locations the service remains the same. The only drawback (for some folks) is it is slow. I don't mind because I know they are cooking my food to order and it is good!!!! My faily went around the corner and loved it (except the speed-but they are from NY and NJ... More

This is the quintessential place to go for both breakfast and late nite (after the club) dinning, when you're in Bethesda. That says it all !

Had breakfast with son yesterday- food came out fast and hot and I can see why they call it the Tastee Diner because it was tasty. Excellent service, clean establishment and better than Bethesda location based on my previous visits there. Sides are not cheap- $5.99 for corned beef hash? Come on!

Classic looking diner. Looks like it's been there for a long time. Don't expect a high end experience. We came here because everything closed at 10pm in downtown Silver Spring and this place is 24 hours. Weird smell inside. Food was ok, but nothing great. Get a burger and fries. Those seemed best. My omelet was good, potatoes were super... More

This is a family favorite and we love their brunch and dinners. Open 24 hours and the service is always excellent.

Taster Diner has expanded since the last time I ate there (a couple of years back). With the passage of time, things have gotten a bit better: they've carved out a small outdoor dining area; the wait staff are friendlier and less overworked; and the menu offers a nicer spectrum of basic diner selections. I got a crab cake dish... More
