“Nice stop along the way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I actually stopped in Roscoe to do a nearby geocache. When my wife and I saw the number of cars at the Roscoe Diner, we decided to try it. It is reminiscent of a late 50s - early 60s diner. Breakfast is served all the time. We didn't order breakfast, but many of the breakfast items looked good on the menu. We had lunch items. Our waitress was good, but did kind of disappear for a while and we had to ask another waitress to find her when we wanted to order. The food arrived quickly and was very good, with large portions. The price seemed very reasonable for what we got. I would definitely stop here again if in the Roscoe area.

“Nostalgic Stop”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stopped at the famous Roscoe Dinner on our way to visit family. We had not been there in 15 or more years. Too bad we did not wait another 15 years. The restaurant was clean and staff friendly. But the food was not so nice. The bread was stale, although the salad was good. The entries were ok - I had the ham and my husband the meatloaf. The deserts however we terrible. They were displayed nicely - but had probably been sitting there for several weeks, very dry and no flavor. The bill came to more than $40 for the 2 entries and desert.

“A great place to stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

Roscoe Diner has been around forever, so they must be doing a lot of things right. My first visit there was in 1975 as a high school student traveling from the Syracuse area to NYC as it was the half way point...great menu, food, and service. 37 years later and it still is indeed the "World Famous" Roscoe Diner.
