Restaurant details
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The Waco Diner in Eastport is the oldest restaurant in Maine, in 1924' it was originally a lunch wagon, the original owners, Nelson A. Watts , (WA) and Ralph T. Colwell (CO) combined the first two letters of their last names to form the name, WACO.
At one time the Waco was "THE" place to eat in Eastport and if you wanted to know anything about what was going on in town, the Waco was the place to be.
It is at present, closed but has been purchased and is now being renovated , hopefully to be opened in the very near future.

We knew it was a matter of time that this place would go down the drain. Over 30 years + of coming to Eastport it was always the Waco for breakfast , Everyday! Then it got sold acouple times and just got worse and worse. Now when Bob gets this place up and running i am pretty sure it will be the Waco of years gone by. Thank's Bob for taking the wheel . One Ham Sramble with homemade toast please!!!

The bank foreclosed but a local restauranteur bought it at the last minute and plans to reopen it. The food was really not very good after the long-standing diner was bought by people from away a few years back. So, we'll see. The fishermen used to go here for breakfast and I hope they keep that up. Everything else has gotten so expensive.

Huge breakfasts,eggs cooked right, massive pancakes (order the short stack unless you want to skip lunch), local folks, local papers, affordable, and easy to find near Bank Square. What else could you ask for?

Very friendly locals were also here for coffee. Good service, but only open in the morning.
