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!

While visiting the area we stopped in to sample the fare. Our local friends said it was a local favorite and great cheep eats. They were absolutely spot on. Fantastic food, great prices and a home town feel. We had a superb experience. Bought a mug as a souvenir. Those that have seen the mug mention the location was featured... More

As winning chili cook-offs twice--the Diner, per their breakfast items, offer their chili on any breakfast items like eggs, hash browns, omelets, and anything else and the result: very good chili enhancing the egg dish. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. The Diner is open from 6:30 am to 2 PM Mondays to Fridays and from 7 am to... More

Enjoyed the step back to the old time diner atmosphere. Good food for breakfast. Best part they did not over salt the food. Yea. They got a five because they do it right. Good food properly prepared in a quaint setting.

Me and my girlfriend stopped at the Diner for breakfast before hitting the road while on a road trip. The food was so amazingly good, I got a breakfast plate that had all the classic things (eggs, bacon, hash-browns, biscuits) and my girlfriend got an omelette. The food was really good and our waitress was really nice and gave good... More

A small diner style restaurant. Very good breakfast for lunch (no wait at all on a Tuesday afternoon)-I had the two eggs with home fries and toast. The home fries have a unique seasoning to them, almost Mexican type spices. Coffee was good and served with fresh cream. Literally the only negative thing I have to say would be that... More

Highly recommended diner was a good choice for an early lunch. Were there during OU's spring break so no wait but still crowded. I suspect you should plan on a wait while school is in session because it is a true "diner" with limited space.
