“Good old fashioned diner food.”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Flashback to old style Southern diner food with extra large portions. Breakfast served 24 hours, a lot of choices for sides for the meals, friendly service and very reasonable prices.

“A REAL DINER”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

If you want to go to a real diner in Deland, this is the one to go to. While the cooking is geared toward 'southern', it is a great place to eat - and they will even give you an extra soda or coffee to go after your meal. Prices is very right and it's open 24-hours a day.

“Good Southern Food”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

The Rig is good for basic Southern food. Breakfast is really good. I judge a diner by the gravy and biscuits. Both are above average here. Most items are made from scratch in house. You may get lumpy mashed potatoes. Prices are good. Daily dinner specials are a great value since they come with 3 sides, bread and desert.

“Good Food, Good Coffee”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

we stopped in here for breakfast while staying nearby at Highland Fish Camp - plenty of good food, generous portions, and great coffee. We liked it so much the first trip that we came back here for breakfast the next day too!

“Truck Driver's Heaven”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Just leave the rig somewhere else! Small restaurant, small parking lot, not easy to see at first. Prices are great. Depending on how busy they are, service can be slow or extremely good. Food is pedestrian but HUGE portions! A few outside tables. They do things like liver and onions that you basically cannot get anywhere else. oh, and if you think the regular menu has large portions, try the daily specials. Good heavens!
