Came for lunch. Huge menu of mostly breakfast items. Also extensive list of burgers. Burgers are cooked to order (nice-can get medium rare instead of cooked dry) and they are big. Lots of choices on toppings too. The prices are very low. It's a real bargain and so much better than the franchise places.

I fine place to stop in and get breakfast. Service is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Take a walk around the Factory after you eat and see some really funky shops.

My husband and I decided to try this place out. After we were seated, it took almost 15 minutes to be waited on to get our drink order. It wasn't crowded, maybe 3 other tables occupied. I ordered the Denver skillet, my husband ordered the chef salad and the pork tenderloin sandwich with fries. We assumed the salad would be... More

Wait staff was wonderful about accommodating our large group. Food came out fast. Amazing waffles. Waitresses are super nice and my kids had a blast. Oh, and my husband had the factory skillet with the chicken gyro meat. It was amazing. We will be back!!

Liked the other, but this has better service and the lunch of cobb salad for $5.75, which was huge, was not only very good, but a bargain. The blue burger and side salad was also a big hit with the hubbie. It was a Sunday at noon, and it was really hoppin'. Can't wait to go back for breakfast. My... More

Absolutely, hands-down, the best breakfast in town. Whether you eat at this location in the Old Factory or at the Factory 2 location, you won't be disappointed. Service is fast, food is great, and prices are good.

I love this place and the Factory Diner II. They have Greek omelets and I always get them. They remind me of Bill's on the boardwalk at Atlantic City. I have only gotten breakfast but the lunch items I've seen look great. The price is good too.

Unique place to eat. Best for breakfast. Very good omlets. Have not ate there for lunch. Sometimes friendlier than others. Better and friendlier than Factory 2

When they first opened they had really good food, but the last few times I have been, they aren't that great. I also have seen that they do not treat their employees very well either. They do have good prices and the food is decent, but I would prefer to support a business that supports their employees; if they did... More

I've ate here several times and the food has been delicious and very reasonably priced. Lots of items on the menu to choose from whether you want breakfast, or lunch. They closed around 3 pm.
