While visiting McAlester we like to try different restaurants. Stopped by for breakfast..... Service was slow, food was average. Only got our original cup of coffee, for some reason we were unable to get a refill. Mark this establishment off our list!

Best rolls and burger buns ever!! We use Trip Advisor whenever we travel and have been rarely disappointed. Angel’s Diner was a “Blast from the Past” experience from the pink Cadillac out front, to the Rock ‘n Roll music, to the wall decor, to the...counter and stools, to the happy helpful waitress, to the delicious burgers and chicken fried steak. Highly recommend for an upbeat dining experience.More

Disappointed after reading the reviews ! Hamburger patty on the Brenda Lee is very thin and dry ! The chicken dinner wasn’t that good either :(

I had the hamburger steak with onions, mushrooms and brown gravy. The sides I had were steamed veggies, mashed potatoes and gravy and a roll. It was all so good. The staff is extremely attentive and it is a great place to eat. My husband...had the patty melt and fries. It was all goodMore

We have eaten here before. Matter of fact, we at here on our way to Texas and the food was really good. On the way back, we stopped here again. Not so good. Food was average, service was slow, order was not correct. Maybe it...was a bad day? We won't be stopping here again.More

We went for the steakhouse menu which is Friday and Saturday 5-close. The tomahawk steak is big enough for 2 people and the chokes n cheese appetizer is wonderful! Also calf fries if you like those! They are fried perfectly!
