The food and dining experience remind me of my school cafeteria days. I get the impression most food prepared off site and reheated here. This location is somewhat of a local hangout

The food was so bad that I felt bad for them. It's traditional American style cuisine with meals that most make at home (e.g., spaghetti, nachos, salads, etc.) but I know I can make everything on the menu better tasting than they did. It was like they went to Sam's club and bought cheap ingredients in bulk to make the... More

For my first time at Famous Anthony's I tried a breakfast special (two eggs, sausage, fried apples and biscuits). The food was hot, cooked right, and fairly priced. The server kept an eye on our coffee cups. The Saturday morning crowd was bustling. I will look forward to trying something different at Famous Anthony's the next time we are in... More

We love to go to Famous Anthony's with our lids because of all the food choices. Something for everyone. Price is right for a family on a budget. Some night offer "Kids eat Free"!

Famous Anthony's is a typical American diner. Great choice of breakfast foods. The day we were there it was very busy and they were short staffed but our waitress, Lisa, attended to our needs. Our food came very fast and it was very tasty.

Restaurant is large so wait is shorter than you think. Breakfast is hearty. Belgian waffle good. Coffee ok. Benedict does NOT have hollandaise sauce on it. Some of the combinations were a little strange in terms of taste, but everything was freshly made.

Took my parents here for Father's Day. It's one of the few places my dad enjoys going. While it wasn't exactly what I had in mind, it made them happy and that means everything. Our server was extremely friendly and attentive

I had only seen a breakfast menu from Famous Anthony's and when I went one morning for breakfast, I found out they had lunch dinner as well. Down to earth regular food. I enjoyed everything I had. No fancy stuff here. French toast for breakfast with a side of bacon. Then I went back for a steak for supper. The... More

Me: "What's the yellow stuff on the toast?" Waitress: "I don't know." End of conversation. Try to remember your school cafeteria food, or just go here. They left off the "IN" from in front of "FAMOUS."
