Ate at the diner twice. The food is very greasy. I call the Diner The greasy spoon restaurant. Just has a greasy taste.

I love their food and I love the environment. I always sit at the counter, and the first few times I was in there, they coincidentally played two of my very favorite songs (Take it Easy by the Eagles and I Wanna Be Your Lover by Prince). The food was amazing, the environment was very comfortable, and felt very classic.... More

This Diner was on the tv show "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives". I visit here several times a year because I love the old Norman feel it has. It's in the old part of Norman and has been there since I moved to Norman in the 70's. Love Diner food and this fits the bill perfectly. Nice folks, old place. My... More

The little spot on Main Street is a terrific choice for a great, unique lunch. The menu was a cool mix of comfort food and Southwest-inspired dishes. I had a Tamomelette. Yeah - a tamale omelette. So good with that chile verde. Go there and give this a shot ... you'll be glad you did.

We had pancakes, bacon and the Mexiscram. Everything was fresh, delicious and plentiful. Worth the visit for "diner" style food when near OU.

Our first time visiting The Diner and we really didn't think it was all that great. I read some of the reviews on thier blueberry pancakes on how great they taste and all, well it wasn't that great to me it was average and not something to be wow about. I didn't like the fact that all the blueberries were... More

We went without breakfast in our hotel just so that we could visit here and we're glad we did. I had an omelette and my wife had pancakes. We both enjoyed our food and I liked the bill.

Delicious breakfast! Tastes like my grandmas cooking. This isn't a Denny's or IHOP, the Diner serves DELICIOUS home cooked food. Local tastes better people, go here!

My husband and I had breakfast here yesterday. It was so good, we came back today! Love the feel of the 100+ year old place! Must haves, so far... The Tamale Breakfast and The Brisket Hash. Both unbelievably delicious. Great prices too!

Thank Vicki H
