We were staying at the nearby Sheraton for one night before heading to the east coast and we looking for an authentic, local spot for breakfast. We knew we hit the right spot when we saw the police cruiser out front. We were right on with our choice. To begin with, the "diner" (actually more of a regular restaurant in a strip mall conveniently located on a major road in an easily accessible location) was filled with locals (another good sign). The waitress was super-helpful suggesting to us that the better pancake deal was the so-called "short stack" because the pancakes (2 of them) were larger than the regular order and our coffee was included in the price. We ordered the blueberry pancakes and were shocked by their size. They were HUGE and filled with large, fresh blueberries. Although we gave it a valiant effort, we couldn't finish both of them. What a great, delicious deal accompanied by a friendly, helpful waitress for fair price. Overall, a winner!

My wife and I retired about 18 months ago. We don't seem to eat at home much anymore. The Diner always has been a favorite, but now it's our home away from home; we'll, at least for breakfast (any time) or lunch.

I'm a pancakes or waffle man. She's and eggs and grits woman. The pancakes are so big I only order one; wheat preferably. She goes for the farmer's special.

She drinks coffee; says it's the best (next to the much-more-expensive Starbucks). Iced tea for me. The staff--very attentive and friendly--keep both coming. They know us now.

Sometimes it's for lunch. Their "off-the-bone" turkey (sandwich or plate) is delicious. The BLT is very good. Salads. Wraps. Burgers. The usual. All tasty.

We often see friends here, and it's always good to catch up.

This is not fine dining. But it's just fine with us. See y'all tomorrow!

Great breakfasts, terrific lunches AND super, friendly service. Need I say more? Just let me add, the prices are reasonable and even during their busiest time on Sunday Morning - they work hard to get you seated and fed. Locals LOVE it but if you're in town on vacation or business, try it out! There is outdoor seating on nice days!

Popular and very busy for years, but it is run so efficiently that if there's a line, it's a very short wait. Excellent breakfast or lunch (closes at 3 pm) Wife of owner is a pastry chef who makes homemade desserts weekly. Hot specials taste like they were made at home: meatloaf, chicken salad and shrimp salad are favorites, turkey dinners with all the trimmings, fresh fish, etc.
