this is a great hole in the wall dive: cheap, home cookin, greasy and appeals to the local cigarette crowd. Problem is it keeps the city down. The urban core of Jefferson County is not looking for a dump like this anymore. But if you are into cheap greasy food, home cooked with love and care, it is a great... More

Me and my bf went in for some breakfast and instantly knew it was a mistake. Our waitress had almost no personality and disappeared pretty much the entire time. We ordered coffee then sat for almost 10 minutes waiting for her to come back since we had no cream for the coffee. Our food came out pretty quickly but it... More

Grandma's diner looks and feels like the real thing, but doesn't fully measure up to what is expected of the old diner. The portions were small, mashed potatoes overly buttery (maybe boxed butterbuds), gravy average, green beans canned, and yet the chicken fried steak was superior though small. Service was not particularly good until nearing the time to pay and... More

Had the pleasure of dining here at the memorial celebration for a friend. He was a local and always knew the best places to eat! This is classic diner fare with exceptional desserts, I didn't have any but they are supposed to be very, very good. Had never been here prior to August 7th. but if we find ourselves in... More

Have had breakfast here several times and the service is always fast and friendly and the food is very good! It's a family run business, which is very nice, and 'The Mexican Breakfast' is one of my favorites and is only made by Grandma!

Had breakfast dishes around 1 p.m. My bacon was crisp and delicious but the scrambles eggs were way overdone. My wife's cheese omelet was outstanding. Coffee was from the local Black Dog Coffee shop and delicious.

Just a counter and a few tables but excellent comfort food. Mexican Restaurant disguised as an American diner. Try Grandma's green salsa...hot and excellent.

Passing thru Charles Town looking for a small place for lunch. Spotted this place and was not disappointed. We are not big eaters so a couple of burgers were perfect for us. And they were excellent! Great wait staff and you could tell this place was well frequented by the locals as the staff knew the names of lots of... More
