“Great atmosphere, good food, rude but pretty good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2009

It's first come, first seated and don't wait for the cashier in front of the doorway to tell you, because she won't, and she may not note your presence either so be proactive.

We had the western omelette which was good, particularly with salsa which is made on the premises. The trail mix pancakes were very good but there's no granola in those things - just so know. The music is 50s and a lot of fun and the place is very casual and it looked like there were regulars and tourists as well. It was a fun place. But our waitress had a pretty short fuse and snapped at my wife, apologized, and then randomly snapped again a few minutes later before catching herself. If she wouldn't have, we would have walked out. (I would hope the waitress was just having a bad day, but if not, she is in the wrong line of work!) Give it a shot, but be wary.

“Decent but not my type of diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2009

I went to Diner with a couple friends from out of town and I think the consensus was that it was okay, but maybe a bit below par. I had eggs and toast (simple enough!) and the eggs tasted fake which is too bad since that's basically all I had for my meal. I also ordered grits which I expected to be all savory but the grits were more like a basic cream of wheat, and I was disappointed.

It was super, super cheap, and that's always a plus! But then again, most diners are a good value and serve a bit better food.

I love a good diner, but am of the opinion that this one was sub-par. I wonder what lunch would be like? Hopefully lunch is where the diner has an opportunity to shine.
