Always on the lookout for a good diner. This diner fit that bill. Service and food were great. The daily special did not appeal to us, but it was easy to fine some good grub in their big menu. Only one restroom in the diner for all. The shape of the diner was also unique.

Waited over 40 minutes for our food to come out and it was just warm not hot. I ordered a ham breakfast combo and the scrambled eggs were very rubbery. The ham was not cooked to what the picture looked like. Boyfriend had monster mash and he said it was mediocre. The only part we liked about the food was... More

A diner reminiscent of the sixties where locals gather to feast on favorite special plates, omelets, burgers, specialty sandwiches, waffles and such. Real food served by real people with real smiles and conversations. This is where I get my omelets, hash browns, buttered toast, and tea. Their daily specials go fast and they close at 2:00 p.m. Located inside the... More

In Branson for the weekend. Some people we know who stay in Branson regularly recommended this diner and since we like local eateries wherever we go, and usually find good food in smaller places like this, we stopped in for breakfast. It was a Sat. morning and wasn't all that busy. Still plenty of tables available. It took 5-10 minutes... More

Located in a little shopping mall is the best diner in Branson. No offense to the places on 76, but this little diner was perfect. The atmosphere is that classic diner feel. The staff are friendly and down to earth kind of people. The food was so good, some of the best biscuits I've had at a diner. The thing... More

I just love this little places that deliver big on food. You never know about these places so I asked the waitress what I must try on the menu and she immediately said "the Reuben". And it did NOT disappoint. In fact.... I've already been back to have it a second time.

We just pulled in while driving. What a great breakfast! The sausage was outstanding and everything that was ordered was very good. We had six family with everyone ordering something different. Everyone was very pleased. They were very busy, so we did have a wait. We will make this a tradition for breakfast in Branson. Not far from Silver Dollar... More

Great food. Great service. Reasonably priced. Ordered an omelet with hash browns. Eggs perfectly cooked, not over done. Hash browns were crisp and golden brown.

I am sure of this when I write it that we have been here probably 10 times this year. (I am writing this in Sept. of 2016) The place earns 5 stars from us because it is exactly as the name would imply - a diner. Nothing more, nothing less. It caters HEAVILY with the locals of Branson. I mean... More

This is one of our very favorite eating places. Nothing fancy but very good food. My husband says they make the best waffles anywhere (and he has tried a lot). Love the breakfast spinach omelet.
