Love going to poor boys for Sunday breakfast. It's seems there is always a wait but it is well worth it. Lots of food for a good price

Poor Boy's Diner in Londonderry was a great find to celebrate our 23rd wedding Anniversary breakfast. I had the lobster omelet and it was filled with a half pound of lobster claw/tail and was the best I've ever tried. I believe it was around $15 but well worth the price. My wife had an egg, bacon, home fries plate and... More

We went for dinner about 12 years ago and were disappointed. This is the first time we came back since then. We found the the restaurant to be very pleasant place to sit down and eat. The restaurant choices were mostly what you would expect for breakfast at a diner, plus some extraordinary choices. I had the kitchen sink omelet... More

This local spot is a "go-to" for any local or traveler! Always greeted with a smile and a friendly "hello"! The food is made from scratch, served fresh and hot. Our family favorites (when not counting calories) are the french fries and tumbleweeds!

We have gone here 2 times but my wife has only gone 1 time. The portions were HUGE, but it was all fried food basically. She is a nutritionist so this is the polar opposite of her style. Not exactly my style either with other options in the area.

We could not eat in as they are not handicap accessible and my wife is wheelchair bound. Food used to be great. Ordered seafood trio to go. Portions were exceptional, however they should not be in the seafood business judging from what I received. Over cooked and difficult to chew, with the tops of the stuffing burned. Stuffing was more... More

While in the area, we stopped for an early morning breakfast having read all the great reviews. Atmosphere was nice. We had French toast and eggs/bacon. Nothing bad or wrong to say about the food or the staff. Portions were good, but overall, it was just average. Nothing that wow'd us and I would say we expected more from all... More

With a good selection of burgers and sandwiches plus daily specials this is s good lunch spot. The servers are very friendly and they all seem to help each other out. The food came out fairly quickly and was hot and delicious. The restaurant is in a convenient location right off route 93 exit 5.

THE PROS: Consistently good food at reasonable prices with friendly service! THE CONS: Small crowded dining room which can be noisy especially during breakfast hours. They really need to expand their dining area!
