All their open face sandwiches with fires or home fries are superb. This is diner dining at it's best.

Dinner was just ok. It's bland. If you are on a budget this is good for you. Staff members are very friendly.. it's not as clean as I would like a place to be.

We got their specialties- glider sandwich and porketta - and both were way over cooked and over salted. Very disappointed and can't imagine why this was in Road Food.

Just had breakfast during a busy Sunday morning. Our waitress was friendly but she was very busy so service was a little slower. Our eggs benedict were delicious. My husband also loved the homemade corn beef hash. The only disappointment was that they were all out of their homemade cinnamon rolls. I guess we will have to try again when... More

I enjoy my breakfast on Sunday's at the Glider diner, the coffee is great and the food is plentiful. My family enjoys the club sandwiches and Texas burgers with fries and onion rings, Yum.

I'm glad I found it. This is the real thing. Opened in 1948. If you closed your eyes you could almost imagine yourself back in the post-war period. I tried the corned beef hash/eggs. It was good but different. I like trying this as I travel all over the country by car. I was surprised by how they prepare it.... More
