Its definitely a locals place. Ive lived in Fremont for the early 20 years of my life. They know my family, we know theirs, the waitresses know your friends, you know their kids, and I think you get the point. Heck the owner gave me Browns tickets one year, and for the longest time, they already knew what I wanted... More

I ate here for years and this is one place I miss so much now that I moved away. When you go here, you better be ready to eat and eat good... my favorite was always his home fried potatoes. His pancakes and sausage will cover the plate lol The hamburger and fries are mouth watering... I'm telling you if... More

This is a breakfast-lunch small town diner with excellent food and large portions! The prices are affordable and you get plenty to make it worth every penny!

First the place sure could use a good through cleaning. Yuck! We ordered breakfast. The sausage was terrible! It had no spice things in it at all. I know not everyone likes alot of spice but that stuff was down right tasteless! The prices are too high for what you get and I'm no cheapskate. Will not ever return or... More

We waited in line. Place jammed full, but we enjoyed another great breakfast. Have not been here for awhile. Wish they had a place like this near home. Love it!

This is a small hole in the wall, local breakfast eatery where the butter and grease will leave you pounding your heart! Really greasy, good food and plenty of carbs! A real local favorite before golfing or that Saturday morning guy stop!! Not for the healthy here but lots of options. Sit at the counter and count the laddels of... More

Mark and the staff at Whitey's are truly a staple in Fremont. They have been doing what they do best for decades. Best loved for his fried potatoes and sausage, or his messy burgers, this is a place to eat time and time again. It is small and can quickly get crowded especially on a weekend morning, but well worth... More

Very reminiscent of the typical 50's era diner. Don't expect a great atmosphere just great food. You will never leave there hungry. The food can be a bit greasy at times but it is always flavorful.
