We have lived in the area for 21 years and decided to try Dads out. I ordered an omlette with toast and potatoes. The omlette was made with canned mushrooms and cheese slices. Very disappointed. We tried to give them a chance.

You know, we used this app to find this location. We happened to catch breakfast on a sunday as the tables were flipping and got a spot. Service was good considering there only appeared to be two servers working the room. Booths are small and uncomfortable - probable to keep you not sitting there too long. Good food - but... More

I stopped in for a burger, as I had heard good reviews. It was not easy to find. Decor - what? I was asked if I wanted chips or fries, tomato and onion. I was not told they would each cost me. I ended up with a $10 burger in a cheap-looking diner! Not going back there.

Food is really good however prices are a little high for breakfast! ! The staff is very friendly and helpful I really enjoyed the food and astumsphe. It seems to be a very family oriented restaurant would have given five stars if the price was cheaper

Open only for breakfast. The breakfast menu has all the basics and everything is very good. At lunch the burgers are great. Fresh ground and big. The chili is thick and meaty.

Nothing to brag about here. Just average food. Sort of a dive. Not very inviting or clean looking. Near old factory and warehouses. Only had breakfast, not impressed.

Had a great spinach tomato feta omelet. Omelet was folded over the ingredients. Rye toast was perfect. Would have missed this place if I didn't look up local breakfast restaurants.

We love the hometown diner, it's our first choice for breakfast! We rarely have to wait and the service is quick!

I love to stop in here for breakfast! The staff is always friendly and they have the best Sausage Gravy in TR! Place is always clean and everyone is always great. They are even patient when you have kids who are not quite ready to say what they want. One of my fav places!
