Theos is immaculate, and the food is expertly prepared. We love Theos because the food is great, the portions are large and the staff is very attentive and courteous. It has a homey atmosphere with a bright and attractive dining area. Super easy to get to in the downtown area. Plenty of parking.

Good place for breakfast or lunch if you in town. Small and gets crowed on Sunday mornings. Fast service and consistently good food

Theo's is a great downtown diner with all the appeal of having good food, good coffee and the place "the locals eat at." Gilmore Girls fans will definitely be reminded of Luke's Diner as Theo's was the inspiration for Luke's.

Been going to Theo's for years. Breakfast is still very good but the coffee has gone a little downhill. Must deduct a full star here till the brew is improved. Coffee is too light with no auroma. Lunches are so so now. Still a great staff but please improve your coffee to get that full star back. pete

I stopped in here for breakfast while I was in the area for the Gilmore Girls Fan Fest. I'm not usually a fan of diner food, but I had steak and eggs and it was delicious. Service was good and I liked the atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Theo's.

Theo's offers great breakfasts and lunch. Real food with no gimmicks and no corners cut. Down to Earth, tasty fresh food. I never had anything bad there.

Breakfast and lunch spot that knows what it's doing. Breakfast comes out how you ordered it and hot. Eggs, pancakes and muffins all done perfectly. Good coffee. Lunch is creative fresh and hits the mark. Their soups are really good. Warm, friendly, accommodating staff. A hit every time

Theo's Downtown Diner is a great place for breakfast! The food is amazing and came out pretty quick. I had a ham, mushroom and cheese omelet. The ingredients were super fresh and the size of the omelet was super filing. The bacon was crisp and thick and tasted great! The place is kind of small so if you have a... More

I eat at Theo's about once a month. It's a good place for lunch. It has standard fare. The salads are good. The sandwiches are good but nothing special. The portions are large. Order a small salad. It's plenty of food. The service is good and professional. They don't rush you. The cost is reasonable, in line with the quality... More
