Great location in plaza midwood, and the history of the place is interesting. Those are the highlights. The seating was broken in many years ago, and it’s now just uncomfortable. The service was occasional and incidental. I found myself delighted, and more than a little relieved when my server made eye contact with me. I ordered a chef’s salad without... More

My husband and I went to the Diamond on a Monday evening at 5:30. This is a very small place. It was not crowded. There were 3 booths with people in them and one table outside. We were seated in front of the cash register. After being ignored for 15 minutes, we got up and left. Perhaps the problem was... More

I hadn't had a dog in a while and got sweet potato fries with it. Great treat. Food came out fast and the service was fast and very nice. Wife had a burger and said... More

Excellent burgers! Fries were plentiful, but nothing amazing, pick another side. The okra was outstanding! Only one larger table for groups larger than 5.

They're greasy, but in a GREAT way. They have really good chocolate cake and have a perfect amount of menu items. I hate when diners pile up menu items. Diamond keeps it simple, just like their food. I've had charred burgers there before, but they have improved over the years. I love them! Eat local!

I finally got back to one of my favorite lunch restaurants. I would have given it a 10 but my memory tells me it was oh so slightly better. The fried chicken is still great.
