“Favorite place for big breakfast”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

My grown kids love to go to Hanks! Small place in Painters Crossing area with great old style breakfasts.....nothing too fancy..just real good food at reasonable price with personal service....lots of regulars...tough parking during prime time...worth the wait...sitting at counter works well too...get the eggs Benedict....lots of coffee....ready to face the day...

“Go here when your hungry!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

This is a unique diner, giving its location and history . Their food is delicious, but be prepared to put on some calories. A good place for home style breakfast and lunch. If in the area, you can't find much better!

“Hank's First but not last trip”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Taken to Hank's for breakfast by friends for the first time last week. What a wonderful pleasant surprise. GREAT food, some of the best pancakes that I have had anywhere in the country. Waitress treated us like long lost cousins. Couldn;t have been nicer. Great atmosphere for such a small restaurant. Will definitely be one of my first stops when back in this area. I highly recommend it for any family that wants to try a new place. You will not be disappointed.

“A Bustling Greek Diner”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We arrived at around 1:45 on a Saturday. Had to wait maybe ten minutes in the line on the front porch. No big problem there, though, as the line miced fairly rapidly. Inside, the place was jumping but the service was fine.

As was the food: no frills, homemade and hearty. We all had burgers and fries. Mine was a gooey portobello burger with melted cheese and sautéed vegetables. Messy and meaty. The fries were very good, made with unpeeled potatoes, which I like.

We split a giant portion of pumpkin bread topped with ice cream, pecans and whipped cream for dessert. Tasty, rich and filling. No one left hungry.

Cash only--no credit cards and you pay at the counter where the woman at the cash register totals your bill.
