Onion rings and French fries are made in house and very good. My husband has the Chubby Cheesy (double hamburger) basket and said it was a very good burger. I had the small Oriental chicken salad which was good as well. Service was very quick...and checked on us twice. We will definitely go back as their menu has lots of options yet to be explored!More

First night in Carthage. I had done some checking and found Iggy's Diner. Whereas it is not a true relic, it looks like one. And I think it has been around long enough to almost qualify for it. It was Friday night, so kind of...busy. And of course they had limited seating. And it seemed a bit short staffed. We both ordered burgers, fries and a shake. As stated it seemed they were a bit short staffed. And they were filling take out orders. We did not mind as we were on a mini vacation. We took the time to people watch and rest after a day's drive. The hamburgers were great. We did not get our shakes until after we had eaten. Which was ok as they became our dessert. The staff was very attentive and pleasant, even though they were busy. Fun place.More

Went to Carthage for the Maple leaf festival and car show (big car show!). At breakfast here. Lots of selections, lots of food, and lots of savings. I had a scrambler, my wife had the biscuits and gravy. Both were excellent. Don't come expecting masks...and social distancing, but the food is worth a trip.More

Came here Saturday morning before the business expo. Slid into their bar counter. Servers were flying around. Orders turned our fast but the staff was so busy they were not able to check in with tables. Saw several folks getting impatient. I got my own...coffee and enjoyed my corned beef hash. Eggs and biscuits and gravy. Food was great diner fare. Would come back, especially during the week when it's probably not as busy.More

This was our first visit to this local icon. The Route 66 decor was really nice and the menu was simple with good prices. Our sandwiches were nice sized and hot! The fresh cut fries were a little undercooked, the Suzy-Q's were actually seasoned curly...fries, and the chicken fried steak was typical. With all that being said, I think we will stop in again for another visit.More

Stopped here for breakfast on our way to KC. The coffee was good and the meals were tasty. My husband had an omelet and biscuit and gravy. I had a skillet. The food was fresh, hot and good flavor. Portion sizes are large. Would return...if we came back through Carthage.More

I've ate here for years. Their food is consistantly great - especially breakfast, burgers, pork tenderloin sandwiches and chicken fried steak. It amazes me how rude and unfriendly the staff is. It is almost like they are doing it as a gimmick. If it is...a gimmick then tout it more. If not, then folks need to smile more, maybe throw out a welcome here and there, and just pretend to be friendlier. I'll keep eating here. After all, the food is consistently good.More

It felt like we ate at a distinctive place. Service was pleasant and prompt. We both had the special, pork tenderloin and mashed potatoes, with one order of green beans and the other with a salad. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant. Meat and potatoes...were smothered with thick white gravy. A real rib-sticking meal! Prices were appropriate.More

This is a very cool 50’s inspired diner. My daughter had the frito Pie and said it was really good. My husband liked his sandwich. My chicken fried steak was ok. The price was very reasonable.
