“A favorite in Mount Vernon”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I love this diner! I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. They have an extensive menu with salads, sandwiches, comfort food, and daily specials. You must save room for their huge list of desserts, including lots of amazing cakes and pies. Most recently, I tasted the strawberry pie and the peach pie, both of which were drool-worthy and delicious.
The staff is always friendly but this place can be packed, so if you go during a typical meal-time, you may have to wait. But trust me, the wait is worth it. The atmosphere is fun and retro, and they usually play oldies on the stereo. The decor is filled with lots of blasts from the past and checking out the decoration is almost as fun as eating here.
Any time I am in town, I make sure to make a trip to the Southside Diner.
