This family oriented diner has good food at reasonable prices. They make the best chicken salad I have ever had and you can order it as a meal or as a side. They also have the best turkey dinners on Sunday's.

Family Traditions food is like it's name. Good wholesome favorful meals , with generous portions. They also feature daily specials and a Super priced Breakfast . One more thing , their old fashion malted milks are to die for .

I felt like this place could provide semi-decent food at a cheap price if you knew the wait staff well enough to get an honest assessment of what was freshly cooked that day. Otherwise, plan on microwave leftovers. For example- a hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes- great if they had roasted turkeys recently, if not- turkey lunch meat nuked... More

I have been to Family Tradition many times and have always had good food. The Big John omelet is big enough for two to share...the turkey dinner on Sundays is wonderful, and I also love the chicken salad with a bran muffin for lunch. The chicken fried steak is enormous and wonderful at any time of the day. Everything is... More

You either love their pizza or hate it, I happen to love it. Their fake Mexican isn't bad, haven't had much else. Good prices, less than stellar service.

Turkey dinner with all the trimmings! DELICIOUS! They give you such huge servings that we always bring enough Turkey home for a sandwich. Service is super great also.
