Waitress was very friendly, restaurant was clean and not busy. My fries were under cooked, the slaw was in a very miniature dressing cup, one bit and it was gone. The chicken tenders were not great at all. If I return I will get something...More

It's not a 5 star Michelin restaurant and you shouldn't expect that. If you want a decent breakfast for a good price with a hot and good cup of coffee and pleasant service you will be happy here. Classic diner fare, no organic micro greens...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.
