All of the burgers are great, onion rings too. Any pie you pick will not disappoint. Every time we're in town for business this is where we stop for lunch.

This diner has been around for over 100 years and the food is homemade and tastes great. The menu is so varied that everyone can find something they like.

You can park and order curb service or go inside . We opted inside this trip. I took my mom out for a Sunday lunch... More

The cashier was distracted about some shift scheduling problem that we had to hear about during our order. We were supposed to get a 2-for-1 sandwich with our WYSO card, but only got a 10% discount. The fish sandwich had more breading and bun than fish, and don't ask for lettuce--it's an extra charge! The butterscotch pie had a nice... More

The Spot restaurant is a throwback to the days all baby boomers remember so well. The Spot still has a very active drive in with car hops and its old dinner looks make you relive you teenage years. The food is prepared well and the service is fast. You can also eat your lunch or dinner while enjoying the downtown... More

When you go to the Spot Restaurant, I was told you have to have the pie! The burger is a staple at this place, so I had that too. Neither was exceptional, but for the price, it couldn't be beat. Total bill for the entire meal, with a side salad and drink, was still $12!!!
