“What a letdown!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We went to Henry's for breakfast during the Black Friday weekend for what we thought would be a great, inexpensive meal. Quaint, crowded and a strange L-shaped place - thought we were in for some good grub. Unfortunately, after what seemed an interminable amount of time, our food was served, alas, not piping hot but almost cold, potatoes still hard - not at all appetizing. The only thing I liked, as it was warm, was the biscuit, which I think it had been microwaved as I repeatedly heard the ding of one from the kitchen. This was turning into a fiasco - breakfast is supposed to be easy!!! The excuse was that they were really busy, but the waitress also said she had picked up our plates right away??? Long story short, we sent the food back, they tried to fix it but wasn't much better. We picked out what we could eat and got the heck out, with a "we'll never eat here again!" Bad day? Doesn't seem like the same place everyone is raving about...

“Great Food from another era”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I really enjoy this little diner for the food and the ambiance. It is a small building in an oasis of a large mall and office building. Convenient to the Burlington business district.

If you are looking for fancy dining with a celebrity chef, this is not your place. If you have a fond memory or diners from years ago with ample portions of really good food,great service and a homey atmosphere, then Henry's is for you. There is a counter and booths by the window; the servers and friendly and efficient. Good coffee, eggs, omelettes, pancakes, etc. The lunch is said to by just as good but I really come for the breakfast. They don't rush you and it is like eating at home without the work or the dishes.

If you are in one of the close by hotels, skip their morning offerings and get great food for much less money

Traveled with a friend to Henry's. Very good food, great corned beef hash! Hollandaise sauce and service both need work

“Tried and True Diner. It's the Best!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We always come back here when we are in Burlington. The food is always good, as is the service. The atmosphere is hustling bustling crowded diner. What more could you want?

“Great food for the price”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

It’s a diner in the middle of Burlington. Very good breakfast, quick service, and a lot of food for the price. I usually order the skillets and they pack so much in the pans I can never finish. My kids love the homemade pancakes with the chocolate chips in them.
