I'm afraid I'm becoming a regular as they know my order now! The dogs are still great (but $2.75 now) and the burgers are better (good deal at $4.25). Service is fast and friendly, the conversation flows and third and fourth generations enjoy a quick meal. Kid-friendly, good b'fast (the potatoes are nicely sauteed on the griddle) and great staff.... More

Burgers, tuna on whole wheat, grilled cheese and hot dogs they way they used to be ~ not fancy, but good American diner food served the old fashioned way in an atmosphere that makes you feel like you've gone back to the 50-60s.

Great hotdogs and fast good in old style diner car. Been coming here for years and would recommend this place to anyone looking for good old traditional steamed dogs, hand made burger or a scrumptious frilled cheese. They even have good pies!

If the place looks small its because it is small. No fries and the drinks are by the can, but you can get some cheap local chips. There are only 10 stools to sit on in this place so several folks get it to go. However, the burgers were awesome. That is why the place is always busy. People are... More

Calling this diner the best restaurant in Natick makes us look silly. Boiled hotdogs are fine in their place, but this is far from the best Natick has to offer. Geez.

Casey's is a great little diner in downtown Natick, MA. There isn't much seating, but the owners are friendly, and were very patient with us first-timers. I got an egg salad sandwich, and my wife got the burger. Both were very good and reasonably priced. It is a very small establishment, but is popular with the locals.

Great friendly service in a vintage dining car. A real locals place with good value and many regulars. Menu is consistent with some modern upgrades.
