This is more of an old diner feel. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. We went there for lunch when we were in a hurry to eat and run. The food here is very inexpensive and has the usual 24 hours diner staple. There were old Seeburg Consolette in every booth. The music from the jukebox will give you... More

This place is the same as when it opened in the 70's. The staff are super friendly, food was fantastic at a great price. I had the blueberry French toast that had homemade blueberry sauce. Freaking fantastic! Well worth a visit!

Pepper Pod is one of those great diners that you love to stop in every once in a while for a greasy burger and fries!

Had not been to this place in years, have now been twice in about a month. Nothing fancy for sure, but for about 5 dollars you can get a nice breakfast anytime or a giant fish sandwich. Service has been very good also. The seats are a little cramped for 4 people, but over all a decent meal for a... More

You have to appreciate the 24 hour restaurants, especially with breakfast offered all hours. The food is cheap, servers are friendly and the coffee is good.

great place to go after a night of drinking or being out late.... it is a great little diner atmosphere, but be prepared with the other customers that come with this kind of place.... loud, drunk, etc. Common food with cheap prices and friendly service. Fried pickles are awesome!

We are always looking for small places that we can take my hubby's Grandma for meals on Saturday. She loves home cooking. This place fits the bill. Staff: The staff is super awesome. They are very friendly and well managed. The managent/owner stays involved in everything and stops regularly at each table and makes you feel very welcome. Ups: The... More

This has got to be one of the last -- if not THE last -- restaurant in the entire USA that allows smoking. As a smoker, I was quite happy; as a person eating there, be forewarned. This is a local diner serving local folks, pure and simple -- no pretensions -- but it just happens to be on a... More

We met a friend who lives nearby to treat him to a birthday lunch at the Pepper Pod. We had different menu items and all three were very, very good. We all got lunch "specials" which included the salad bar in addition to entree and sides. The wait person was great, very personable and attentive to our needs and the... More
