Good old fashioned cooking. From biscuits and gravy to Apple pie and everything in between. Friendly staff. Tom Hanks an his family ate here. Off the main drag, but only by a block.

Wow...if you didn't know where this place was you would miss it....but GREAT food, and FAST service.....very impressed and we will be back. Lunch specials were great tasting, cabbage soup, chili, meat loaf, clam svtrips....they were all tasty and came with homemade tasting mashed potatoes and corn.....serving sizes were very ample. The cost of each meal was a great value... More

We were warmly greeted at this restaurant that appears to be family owned. The food was good, a nice variety of diner style food. Our waitress was warm and friendly as well as efficient. Prices reasonable. We would return there next time we pass through West Fargo.

It's a good thing this restaurant reopened with new owners and a new name. We need to keep this restaurant alive because they have such good homemade pies and pastries and other food that tastes as good or better than if you had cooked it yourself. It's a friendly place that's always busy, so come with your appetite and enjoy... More

TNT Diner has changed hands, the new name is Deaner's Diner. The great help takes care of service with a smile. Bringing out the timeless diner fare at affordable prices. I would suggest showing up early for the rush hours as the place will be full of happy people enjoying Deaner's Diner.

The name has changed but nothing else. All four of us ordered super hot beef sandwiches. The pie was delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the service outstanding. Loaded with decorations from the 50's.

Same friendly help and good atmosphere. They don't fresh brew the coffee any longer and I love good coffee and this is a poor quality coffee. Breakfast was slow, toast was undone, cold and unbuttered.

Thank Wallace T
