I stopped in for lunch. They do breakfast all day so I had an omelette. The food was excellent. The service was outstanding. And the price was very reasonable. This is just a good solid restaurant.

This is an Athens staple. Although it can sometimes have a longer wait than other places, it is always worth it. Perfect for brunch with your friends or late night munchies.

It's great to have a diner open 24-hours a day, and one that offers breakfast all those hours too. The staff is welcoming, the food is traditional American cuisine. There is usually parking along Union Street.

We had the portobello sandwich and the rueben. Both were great with fresh bread from the local bakery. The french fries and cole slaw were perfect. This is a great place for a casual lunch!

Omg! Ate here for the first time today. Had the meatloaf sandwich special! It was the best meatloaf ever! The bread was toasted and it was wonderful! Don’t let the old style decor and rough spots inside the place fool you! The food is great!

If you spend time in Athens, you must make time to grab a meal at the Union Street Diner, Right near campus, parking in the street both sides, popular almost 24 hours a day. We have always gone for breakfast and it is quite special....More
