Fast friendly service. Food was fresh and hot. Hamburgers are good roast beef was tender enough to cut with a fork. Price is good, friendly wait staff, lively nostalgic music.

The noise level was almost intolerable, and it certainly made conversation impossible. The radio was blasting great tunes but it clashed with the excellent food that was served. The good thing is that no one's conversation could be overheard. But back to the food. My husband and I decided to share the Working Man's Omelet, and it was delicious and... More

Great burger-juicy, bacon crisp, bun toasted-added green chili good but a little hot. Had onion rings-just okay. Husband had pork chop breakfast-served all day-he loved it-came with eggs hash browns and toast. Fun 50s diner atmosphere with booths-wish I would've tried the 5 layer chocolate cake.

I've eaten at Dad's for years and have always loved their breakfasts. I've had lunch and dinner there some and can't complain but 99% of the time I go there it's for a morning meal. Their selections are good and they have a good variety. Love their chicken fried steak and eggs! The Southwest Eye Opener is a good breakfast... More

If I could give them a 0 and still post a review, I would. Ordered a fried chicken dinner with baked potato and vegetables. Soup was the only decent thing served. Potato was hard. "Vegetable" was corn that came from a can. Would have overlooked these, but the chicken breast was ice cold and red in the center. When they... More

Lady came and took our drink orders then our waitress came and said what can I get for you and walked off she didn't come back until I asked the manager. It took her a few minutes after that. I thought that was quite rude she did Apologize and then tried to kiss butt. But I'm sorry I did not... More

The 4-layered chocolate cake is out of this world! The steak and enchiladas were cooked to perfection. The hostess and wait staff were warm and friendly offering to go boxes and cups after. The upbeat Oldies music provided for a fun atmosphere. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience for myself and my family this afternoon.

After reading some of the reviews we were unsure about stopping here but my son loves nostalgia so I thought we would go for it. We were delighted to find that it was directly across from the Mall we were searching for. They appeared to be full when we got there but they quickly greeted us at the door and... More
