I like the Starliner Diner especially since they moved. I have always enjoyed the menu and quirkiness of the staff and operation. The new location is very nice. I believe you will enjoy the atmosphere and your meal.

Very nice staff, and the food was ok, but I didn't care much for the décor/atmosphere. I went at lunchtime, and probably should have been more familiar with Cuban cuisine. I ordered the jalapeno soup (special of the day), and they brought what resembled cold and thick gravy (slightly spicy) with a strong onion flavor served with a slice of... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. Good Cuban choices with some daily specials too. Good service and modest prices. I love the plantains!

We eat here about once a week. They have a unique menu offering delicious meals. But if you really want the best, order anything on their nightly specials list! If you like black beans and rice, they have the best in town (my standard side dish, regardless of what I order) and their Cuban Bread is fantastic. The place would... More

We recently stopped in for brunch, our first visit since the move to the downtown Hilliard location. The place was busy -- we got the last parking space -- but there was only a short wait. The decor isn't quite as unrestrained as the prior location, a little more studied funkiness, but still fun. Our service was fine. But one... More

We loved it. Fun place. Makes you feel good about your meal and spending your money. We had Huevos Rancheros, and Chiliquiles. Both very good. I am accustomed to green chili on the Chiliquiles but these were still really good. They even prepared a chili relleno from the lunch menu for us and it was great. Loved it.

Thank Richard D
