Eating at the Tastee Diner is like eating at every other diner everywhere. I felt like I had been there before, even though this was a first visit, & had eaten the same food before. The food tasted like it does in every other diner I have been to. It was uninspiring, but good. The service was fast. It was... More

From time to time after normal restaurant hours we will dine at TD. The service has always been good and the staff is very friendly. They always make us a fresh pot of coffee if we ask for it. It's your average diner regarding the quality of food. Sometimes it’s hit or miss. The location is great in downtown Silver... More

Good, reliable diner food. The omelets and homes fries (with onions) are especially outstanding. Coffee cups are kept warm by friendly and attentive waitresses. This is pure 1950s nostalgia. The Tastee has been around Silver Spring for generations, in two different locations, surviving its downturns and upturns. It was moved from Georgia Avenue, SS's "main street," to make way for...

Went to the Silver Spring Tastee Diner for brunch and everything was good. The blueberry pancakes were nice and fluffy and everything else was delicious. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. They have unlimited refills and if you're 55 and above you'll get some discounts.Good prices and variety.

After midnight this place is extremely sad, the service was terrible and the food left a lot to be desired. They are lucky to be the only food place open that late at night.

We stopped by on a recent weekday for breakfast. The server was very friendly and attentive. The menu was typical diner style breakfast. The food was prepared exactly how we ordered it and it came out FAST! The eggs, toast, bacon and grits were all very good. The turkey sausage (which I was shocked that they had) was a little...

For many years, Tastee Diner represented all that was good about American diners: a big, dependable diner-type menu with friendly waitstaff. The menu is still big, but it's definitely not dependable, and the service leaves a lot to be desired. Food quality is down, the accuracy of orders is hit or miss, and service is no longer friendly. It doesn't... More

Wanted a Ham Sandwich. Actual bone in, hand carved ham on white bread. Would have been great, but the portion was very small. Tasty, but skimpy.

Tastee Diner is a somewhat "classic" diner that serves breakfast all day and has a pretty eclectic menu. It's very casual, inexpensive, and the food is pretty good overall, both in portion size and quality. Service can be a bit slow at times, especially if the restaurant is busy, however it is generally pleasant and consistent overall.

Go for the history and a plate full of food - comfort food. This is not gourmet dining but it is home cooked food and a wide range of options. Don't expect it all to be healthy but you won't leave hungry!
