This was my first visit to Oscar's Classic Diner. The parking lot had handicapped parking and was very accessible. The Diner was also very accessible for my scooter. Our waitress had the typical Diner flair and very enjoyable. My fried chicken dinner was ad delicious as any other restaurant has had. I will return for sure.

If you are craving some good old fashioned home cooking, this is the place to go. Meatloaf, fried chicken, whatever your heart desires. It is all good!

We sure thought that this place was an original diner. When we arrived at the shopping center where it is located, we realized we were at a "Spangles" or "Dick Clark's" (if you have ever heard of those) and the decor was all reproductions of 1950s and 1960s memorabilia. The menu is varied and not terribly overpriced, but we wouldn't... More

I tried the Chopped Sirloin plate with a glass of red wine- but the baked potato was barely warm and the supposed Cabernet Sauvignon was not even worth finishing (not even one good taste note, never mind any complexity or interest). I also had to ask for real butter to put on the baker. Overall, 'not impressed.

Great food and service with a smile. My favorite is the Country Fried Steak and real mashed potatoes and white gravy. Every bite is heaven! Dinner rolls are made from scratch are just like your Grandma's if she could bake! Highly recommended.

We're new to Jeff City and were looking for somewhere to eat. We heard about it on the radio and the food they were advertising sounded so delicious we had to try it. IT WAS AMAZING. ONE OF THE BEST BURGERS I'VE EVER HAD! And the 50-60's atmosphere was so charming! I would recommend it to anyone I know. We'll... More

Oscar s dinner is a 1950s themed dinner with many 50s decorations. The food is very good. Breakfast is highly recommended.
