Great nostalgia for an old NATICK business but really this place is good for a quick burger or hotdog. I wish these old places would reinvent their food so they can survive for another 100 years

If you are from Natick you can't drive by without stopping. Great hot dogs and burgers. You can go inside and eat at the counter or order from the window.

Since we used to live close by in Dover, we frequented Casey's quite often or whenever the craving for a perfect hot dog overcame us. But now that we have been living in Charleston, SC, for a number of years, the absence of having Casey's close by has been difficult to deal with because despite Charleston's reputation as a world...

This place is on the National Registry of Historic Buildings. This diner so small that to get in, it has pocket doors! Place has about 12 seats, though most customers order take-out from the window on the side. Hot dogs and buns are classically steamed In copper kettles. They're great, w/mustard and raw onions. Burgers look like 1/4 lb before... More

A fixture in Natick for many years, my family (especially my two sons) have frequented Casey's for as long as I can remember. Could be listed as one of the "Wonders of World".

Very good place, reasonable priced, and a good old-fashioned style steamer for the rolls. Place has been in business for a long long time and within the last few years they started breakfast and dinner and it's still good. Been going there for years and it's still As Good As It Ever Was. Always busy so make sure you have... More

This is the quintessential diner for many,many decades ago. The food is hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken , egg sandwiches and other limited sandwiches. Chips, pre-packaged cookies, canned soda, coffee, tea, milk Pie sometimes. This is the 3rd generation that is running Casey's I have been going for 25 yrs and I'm still a new guy. Great for families. Kids... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor, gave it a try. More of a counter, than a diner. I guess hot dogs is their specialty because it is not breakfast. Coldest coffee I have very been served and the home fries were terrible. The burger with soggy bacon, overcooked egg and cheese sandwich on a bagel was mediocre. I would never go... More

I have been eating @ Casey's for several decades and enjoy taking out-of-town friends & family to Casey's for a meal. It is ALL about the ambience - a former horse-drawn diner that made the rounds of the area factories about a century ago, just like today's food trucks do. A sliding etched glass front door, 10 wood stools bolted... More

Description
Located in Natick, Massachusetts, Casey's Diner has been in operation for over 120 years. Casey's Diner was first established in 1890 with a 4-stool, horse drawn wagon that Fred Casey purchased from the Brooks family. The current diner was built in 1922 by the Worcester Lunch Car Company and has been located in downtown Natick since 1927. It has passed from father to son for four generations. Famous for its steamed hotdogs, Casey's is a local landmark in Natick, serving generations of families for more than a century. The Diner is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the oldest operating diners in Massachusetts (possibly even the United States!).
