Just had a great lunch! The Black beans, rice, and Tomales are my favorite. I almost got tempted by they grilled chicken Cuban style....but just couldn't pass on the tomales...

“Good food, family atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

they have great prices, been around for a long while. It has that feeling of a diner that's been around for a bit. Nice family owned business.

“Ummm, so one on the only places in Charles Town proper”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We arrived in town and hit the self serve visitors center. The man at the deck couldn't offer a suggestion other than the coffee shop or KFC just outside of town. We did get an iced coffee and then set off to find lunch and then start exploring. This small historic town has a Chinese Buffet, a Bodega, and then we passed by here. Nothing more American than Grandma's diner. We entered and kind of felt obligated to sit since there was no one else here. An old fashioned looking dinner run by a man and his young son who were sitting in a booth and watching golf. The restaurant smelled like a great Grandma's closet and I was going to stick to something fried for safety... We ordered sliders and we quite surprised that they were so good. Fresh soft potato rolls and French fries.
Grandma is a real person and her name is Francesca. She just wasn't there this day.
That is about everything I can share. Not a bad choice among the few options here...

“Breakfast and Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Good home cooked food, and great prices! Breakfast is just the way I like it. Sometimes we just order a whole pie to go!

“Tomales, rice and black beans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Although I am not supposed to eat this, I had to try it and it was really good authentic hispanic food. Grandma's special hot sauce had the perfect heat for me......other things on the menu looked appealing also
