We went for lunch this week and both left agreeing that we would probably choose other restaurants rather than going back. I ordered the "homemade" meatloaf and it certainly wasn't homemade, unless you consider a factory home. Had one texture, just a block of processed...More

Loved the visit today. Really friendly and helpful service. Shrimp amazing, Chicken tenders great, Mexican breakfast delicious and the milkshakes some of the best we have tasted. Will be back again...

I ate here 30 years ago and not much has changed. And that's s good thing. It's a little worse for the wear, but it's still fun to sit at the counter and enjoy a flat grill burger and homemade ice cream shake. Yum

The Diner has been my breakfast place for over ten years. The portions have been reduced so much that I will move on to the House of Pies. Too bad.

The food was pretty exceptional for a diner. The menu listed sausage gravy for the 'biscuits and gravy' , my husband asked if they could do it without saysage and they did. So you know you're getting things from scratch not premade with no exceptions...More

1950s theme - decor and soundtrack. Very tired looking - really needs a refresh. Food was ok - burger, fries (nice seasoning), coke float. Service was quick and friendly. Nothing special.

I stopped at the 59 Diner today to enjoy a late breakfast after a busy morning. I ordered a short stack (3) of blueberry pancakes and a side of bacon. I verified that blueberries would be in the pancakes, not just on the top. Well,...More

Decided to give the 59 a try. Overpriced for average food. Probably would have been better off to go to the Whataburger next door, way better food for about half of what we paid. Will not be returning. Don't recommend!
