I've only been for breakfast, but it's really great. It looks and feels like any other mom & pop diner, but the food is delicious, is served quickly, and is a fantastic value for the money. You'll get more food than you can possibly eat for $5. Love their biscuits!

I live close to McLeans and I've gone there quite a few times. Whenever I have out-of-town visitors, I bring them to McLeans for breakfast. It's good breakfast food, reasonably priced, and you can't beat the friendliness of the waitstaff. It has a big menu. One thing I always notice is the wide variety of demographics represented by the customers there...young and old, black and white, t-shirts and Sunday suits. It's a very comfortable place. It's just recently become 100% non-smoking, which has made seating a lot easier. I have never been there for lunch. I don't understand why Tripadvisor described McLean's as "Californian"...I'd call it a Southern diner.
