“Hole in the Wall”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

I had house made Corn Beef Hash and eggs, very good, staff was friendly, cute little Diner. Parking is poor if it gets busy. I would go again for sure. Prices were good too.

“Great American soul food”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Las Vegas to Hoover Dam and you'll find this gem of a diner in Boulder City. There are great touches everywhere you look, from the giant jam jars they use as water glasses to the unique facets in the restrooms. The meatloaf and chicken Caesar salad are both too yummy for words. Service is with a big smile. Word of warning, if you're on the run best avoid this place, it seems to be a favorite if the local constabulary ;)

“Good lunch stop - very large drinks!”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Thank goodness for the large drinks - remember you're in the middle of some desert here and you need to drink much more than normal. Southwest Diner is a quirky, interesting place to visit, and the food is pretty good, too.

“Should have known better”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

When we pulled up in front and there was nobody inside it should have been a clue.
They advertised homemade. To the chef this includes minute rice and canned vegetables. Even the tea and coffee were mediocre and decidedly not fresh. I was very disappointed in the quality of everything except dessert. I can heartily recommend the pie and cake.

“Best Breakfast in Nevada”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

Great place to stop on your way to the Hoover dam. The breakfasts were delicious. The staff was friendly and service was top notch. Loved the quaint touches such as drinks served in Mason jars. So glad we found this place instead of a Denny's. Plenty of parking.
