My husband is not from the New England area and wanted to eat somewhere that was a "typical" New England restaurant. 50-50 diner definitely fit the bill. Service was friendly and the food was good hearty fare.

Large backroom and of course a counter, so typical of diners. Not a great deal of choices if you are Gluten free, but for those who aren't restricted, a decent serving size for the specials. How can you go wrong with meatloaf or fish & chips? Diner has polite staff, and a large menu. Busy on Sundays after church. Busy... More

We were out viewing fall foliage and decided to take a chance on the diner, which we found on Google Maps. Very basic, but the service was quick and friendly, portions were generous, the food was good, and prices were very reasonable. They don't take credit cards.

The waitresses are happy to be there which is nice to see!! The food was good with big portions. We didn't wait long to eat. Refilled coffee cups once where... More

With all the raves about this place I had to try it It's nothing special in my opinion and it felt like I need to degrease myself after I had left from my breakfast. I found the food to be nothing special and the waitress that day paid more attention to me yet I was a paying customer also. I... More

Parkhill is our reliable local pizza shop and they do a great job staying in that lane. They know what they do best and don't try to mix it up.

We always go to the Moran Square diner when in Fitchburg. However they were on vacation today so we decided to try someplace different. The home made corned beef hash was amazing. The place is a little hole in the type place - not fancy at all. But great food and that's what we look for in a diner. The... More
