Tasty, homemade food with large portions. I had the pancakes--fluffy and flavorful--and biscuits and gravy, which were creamy with just the right amount of pepper and had a little bit different taste (maybe a bit of sour cream?) that I liked. We had to wait a little while to be seated and it wasn't terrifically busy but the wait was... More

I can see why Flynnies is rated #1! My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and non-stop beverages. I had one of the specials, a pulled pork BBQ panini. It was delish with just the perfect amount of barbecue sauce...just enough to cause me to have to wipe my chin a couple of times. The sweet potato fries are... More

Just finished a fine breakfast here. I made a substitution in my omelet with no problem. The portions are huge, the coffee cup is never empty, and the choices are many. Even though it was busy, we were seated quickly. If you are passing through Dixon or live nearby, this is a stop worth making.

This place serves the motherload of breakfast. Do not leave without trying their cinnamon roll or corned beef hash. Great, fast service.

We go to Flynnies regularly. The food is great with daily lunch specials. The Wednesday pan fried chicken for lunch is talky good food.

The food was so amazingly good! The salad was fresh and tasty. And the burgers were huge, and full of flavor. And the price? What a bargain.

We loved this place. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was great. Don't skip the fried pickles, they were the best I've ever had. The burgers were amazing, definitely in the top five burgers I've ever had. The mushroom and Swiss burger on the pretzel bun was a particularly good combination. I will definitely come here again...
