The soup was hot, thick and home made. My gravely... More

I accidentally came across this little diner while out on a business trip in the area. Since I do not like to visit the big chain restaurants I was thrilled to see this little hole in the wall. (That is a good term). The wait staff were down home and friendly, and it was obvious that they have a large... More

Love the fried fish, but I prefer salad to the mac and cheese, there hot turkey dinner is yummy as well. Service seems to vary depending on the time you go, so if you want quick service, I would not suggest going late at night. I have tried quite a few different menu items, salads are quite large, enough for... More

I recently started ordering from this diner because they delivered. I ordered the country fried steak platter. IT WAS THE BEST COUNTRY FRIED STEAK AND GRAVY THAT I HAVE EVER HAD. I had raisin toast with it. It tasted like homemade. I found out they order it from a bakery and it is so delicious. Plus the gravy is homemade... More

The Big Sky Diner is a neighborhood legacy. If you go inside, the original diner is still there in all its chrome glory and the present diner has been built up around it. The BSD has a new owner since about 4 years ago. He used to be a chef and he comes in at 2 am to start making... More
