Food was terrible. Restaurant was freezing cold. Owner very loudly speaking to a customer ( I mean she was loud and disturbing what would have been a peaceful sub par lunch) telling a story about how her husband was arrested, I could tell you the cops name and what station he was taken to. We will never return here again.... More

What the review writer failed to state was I was speaking to one of my older servers, who wears 2 hearing aids and my 16 year old busser who just got his drivers permit. I told him what happened when my son went to take his drivers test and my husband instead was arrested. The story took all of a... More

We have eaten here numerous times. Most times for breakfast it is reasonably price diner. Dave has waited on us every time we have been there for breakfast. We ate dinner there twice just as good as breakfast. I highly reccommend this diner.

This hometown diner is a diamond in the rough. Located in the heart of an area of many restaurants we found this old fashioned Route 30 Diner to be a most welcome menu change from the all you can eat dining experiences. Everything we have ever eaten here has been delicious. I would go here once a week if I... More

We were staying at the Rodeway Inn in Paradise, PA (see that review too), and so drove just over 3 miles south on US-30 to this Diner. Seating was compact but not crowded, and the Diner has a nice atmosphere. Service was very friendly (even for such obvious tourists as us), and lightning-fast -- my Denver Omelette was on the...

The pancakes seem like they were made from the cheapest pancake mix imaginable. The grits were watery with lumps. I don't know how this place made the list of places with good food. My server was very nice and polite. I will not eat here again.

We had breakfast here I wouldn't say that it was the best, but it was edible. I thought it was expensive for breakfast.

What an amazing find! Our last night in the area and we stumbled on this diner. I ordered the chicken fried steak and got TWO huge pieces with a side and soup. Prices were another plus. Friendly wait staff.
