Very good value for money & help yourself to as much tea or coffee as you want. Tons of free parking.

“It's an "institution" so go for the experience and you'll have a good time”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

It was late in the evening after we arrived in Lake Taupo and checked into the Hilton which was just down the street from Stag Park Diner. I had previously noted Stag Park Diner, a 24-hr diner frequented by truckers, to be one of the "places" to visit so imagine how "excited" I was to find it pretty much next to our hotel. We dropped off our luggage and off we went to the diner. Very, very extensive menu - my husband and I must have spent five to ten minutes staring at the board before we could come to a decision on what to order. Don't expect too much, it's usual and familiar diner food - burgers (all kinds), sandwiches, steaks, curries, meatloaves, etc. I chose the fish burger and my husband had a mixed grill. The portions are huge so don't over-order! We waited for a short while for our food to arrive while we watched television. The cook on duty was a highly efficient lady who clearly knew what she was doing - it would certainly have taken me twice or three times as long to prepare the orders! The waitress was friendly and equally efficient. Heads off to women! The ingredients, of course, were very average but normal for a diner. However, my fish was beautifully fried - fresh, crisp and juicy. I liked it a lot. The mixed grill was so so. Didn't go for desserts as we had no more room in our stomachs. Worth a visit if you just want to have a value-for-money meal, casually and quickly.
