we were in town for a wedding reception and a relative suggested this diner for breakfast. The group of 10 ate here for $80 and believe me, nobody left hungry. The portions were large and the food delicious. It resembles an old 50's diner. Definitely a great stop!!!

Even though this Diner has been here a long time, it was my first visit. I loved the old time décor. I had the good old fashion eggs, bacon & hash browns. I asked for extra crispy bacon & eggs over easy & all came out perfect. My friends had pancakes & said they were so good they didn't need... More

This South Side "diner" has been in this same location over 60 yrs. My Mom worked there, she is now 78 is yrs old. It was remodeled and has the ole fashioned car hop feel, loud diner, clanking dishes, seating is very close. Food portions are oversized, reasonably priced. They open early, a plus for us early risers, and get... More

A diner with a Greek influence, you cannot go wrong with any breakfast or sandwich. I think a full breakfast including coffee is under $5 - ish. The coffee is very good, and I appreciate the fact that their condiments are legit: real milk served with the coffee, Equal or Splenda and Marmalade with the biscuits....soo sooo good. Hubby loves...

Ate there for the first time last month. Had the open face roast beef with mashed potatoes & gravy. Could have used more gravy, but that's just me. Food & service was very good.

Had a couple of hours to kill between games and went looking. I had heard of this place years ago but never went. Very friendly and good service! Kids had chicken tenders and they appeared to be freshly breaded and they were very tasty! I had the greek salad and it was good, nothing special, but fresh ingredients. I would... More

Dan's Drive In from the outside looks like yes, I'll be entering an old fashion diner. Entered, and it was more retro, but nonetheless it was a diner. Red and white, and chrome decor. Counter, tables, and both. The food was really good. Serving breakfast all day of course, and specials that were served only til specific time. Lots of... More
