“Best pie in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2007

Wonderful diner-style establishment with cheap prices, great service and phenomenal pie. In a town with far too many chain restaurants Grandma's is a breath of fresh air. Amongst the Melanine tabletops and kitschy wallpieces you'll find home-cookin' favorites like meatloaf sandwiches, turkey w/all the trimmings and a variety of sandwiches. We were particulary taken by the caramel apple walnut pie we had for dessert. Grandma's bakes their pies on site and they're the best that we've sampled in or around Rochester. The key is the crust which is a fluffy, buttery, pastry topping browned to perfection.

Definitely worth the trip!

“dying breed...homecooked diner food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2007

Burgers, fries, tuna on toast, thick malts, homemade pies....You know the menu from the last diner you were in. Food is good, service is good, prices are ridiculously low.

Makes me realize how bad those fake diners are in the airports and shopping malls around the states.

Located in the north end of broadway in the silver lake strip mall.

Enjoy your malt.
