Good casual atmosphere. Good music at the right volume. Average coffee. Good food and came out reasonable timeframe. Good parking available. Large windows. Clean potty. Slightly overpriced for average good food.

Service is friendly and fast. We use this restaurant as a breakfast place, and having said that, the eggs are cooked correctly, bacon crispy, etc. Not particularly special, but always a good experience.

My wife and I tried this place for the first time on a recommendation from friends. We arrived mid-morning on Sunday, expecting a wait. The place was almost full, but we were seated immediately. We receive our drinks quickly, the food took a while to arrive. The decor is 50s American Diner, the place had the feel of needing a... More

The diner was a standout for me but not in a good way. The diner tries to have a nostalgic feel to it but falls a little short. Poor décor choices of old mixers, most from the 60's not the 50's, around the ceiling felt more like someone was proud of their swap meet obsession with old mixers than decorating.... More

Don't let it's location in a strip mall put you off. This is a locally-owned restaurant that does the '50s diner thing very well, from the mid-century modern decor to the '50s rock music playing. They have all your diner favorites on the menu of course (comparable to Denny's or IHOP but better) but also unique daily specials (salmon croquettes... More

Austin diner is found in a modern shopping stripmall setting, but offers quite a bit of "Classic American diner" character indoors. We visited for breakfast and found the place well supported by a local clientele. They offer some weekday specials whereby you can get a breakfast and coffee for $5.99. We particularly loved the pecan and banana pancakes. The service... More

Wife and I went for lunch last week to this throw- back from our youth. Seated immediately and service was quite attentive. We both ordered hamburgers, mine with onion rings, hers with crispy fries. While the burgers were cooked well done despite asking for medium, they were large and tasty. I ordered a chocolate malt, which I have not had... More

This place is a throw-back, exactly what Austin is suppose to me. The staff is efficient, friendly, the menu complete, the prices on target. It is all about breakfast. Lots of families with kids... The migas are special...go for it.
