Was on a long motorcycle trip one day and getting back in later in the day decided to give this a try on the take out side. Went in and ordered the food. Sat....and sat.....AND SAT SOME MORE.....for over an hour waiting for the food until the dishwasher finally asked if we were waiting on an order. He went back... More

On Sunday, May 1, 2016 I went to the Kenmore Diner with my daughter and had a very unpleasant encounter with the Diner’s owners. My daughter is a Vegan for medical reasons (she can’t eat anything animal-based, i.e., no meat, dairy or eggs). After standing in line for more than 20 minutes to get a table, we quickly discovered there... More

The Kenmore is "the" Worcester diner. Good food, good service, classic diner experience. You can go for lunch, but menu is more limited … but who doesn't want to eat breakfast food for lunch too?! Don't go here if you are looking for anything fancy … but go here if you want a good diner experience!

The Kenmore Diner located at Grafton St and Franklin Street is a Worcester institution. Opens at 11:00 PM and is open until about noon the following day - yup, an all night diner. They have booths and counter service; the wait staff is fabulous and arrives with coffee within seconds of your sitting down. Once the order is placed it... More

The service was just ok. The food wasn't too bad. The bacon was delicious but how can you go wrong? The omelets had practically no egg. I was also a little off put by the fact that they don't take credit cards. Cash only always makes me a little leery. The food is good if you are looking for greasy... More

Old looking dinner for a great price and even though it's under a highway bridge, it's still a great place because there open all night.

There is a reason the Kenmore Diner has been recognized so many times for being Worcester's Top Rated Diner. Breakfast is always cooked to order … hot, fresh & delicious. This is a family business … the owner, Jimmy, clearly runs a no-nonsense operation … assisted by his lovely wife, Pauline & their handsome son, George (along with his two... More
