This place is amazing. The food is cooked to order and if you don't see it on the menu you can ask for it. The staff has been there forever and it is like walking into Cheers on a weekend morning! Should not be missed!

Two of us stopped in for a late Saturday breakfast. The place is clean and well-kept, albeit a new-style diner. The items we ordered were perfect, the service was very good and the bill was not steep. I just wish they had a smoker station out front.

I ordered a cheese and mushroom omelet, with a side of bacon. The mushrooms were cold and canned. Gross. The bacon was burned. I returned the bacon and received under cooked bacon. Serves me right for returning it.

I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. It's hard to keep fresh mushrooms on hand as they go bad quick, as far as being cold there is no excuse for that. It's not typical for us to get a bad review so I will defiantly address this with my cook as everyone has a bad day once in a... More

Large portions of way above average breakfast fare, with a large number of items. It is small, casual, and busy. Our waitress was very good. Our food arrived quickly and piping hot. One of the best Belgian Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream that I have had in a long time. The COFFEE was very good, HOT, and served in... More

Rodds is family owned and makes most of their food from scratch. Breakfast is their specialty and you will not go home hungry. Their stuffed burger menu is out of this world. Have never had one I did not like!

Recommend you try their new breakfast burger, stuffed patty contains bacon egg and cheese. They have a huge selection of your favorite breakfast and lunch selections. Great service with no frills so come as you are and enjoy.

Everyone knows Rodd's on Farmington Ave in Bristol, Ct. Great breakfasts, fast service, the waitresses remember you and your order. They keep your coffee cup refilled. Can be a line at the door on weekends, plan ahead.

Hi Folks. Those of you who follow my stuff know I review a local restaurant as a local restaurant. This is one of the best meals I've ever had. Their specialties are breakfast and stuffed hamburgers.

Monday-Friday $2.50 breakfast specials. I usually get 2 or 3 of them with different style of eggs. Always good.
