I don't have a lot of good stuff to say about this place. I had a stuffed pork chop salad and fries with gravy. I had to ask for my salad when they brought me my dinner. The pork chop was not very good didn't really taste like pork good thing I put the gravy on it. I didn't finish... More

Had dinner here. The waitress was new. She was very friendly and tried her hardest. The soup came broccoli/cheese and it was a blob. Even though it was warm the consistency was like it came out of the refrigerator. Meatloaf was so so. Applesauce was the highlight of the dinner.

Stopped at Cocoa Diner for lunch on our way through Hershey. Hubby had a ham dinner with baked beans & cottage cheese. The ham & cottage cheese were great, but the beans were tasteless & barely warm. A can of Bush's beans would have been better. I had chili & pumpkin pie which were both good. Service was excellent.

Morning hour time for breakfast, not bad but not too clean. Scarry at times. Don't look in the kitchen! Ladies are very nice and friendly. They need the tips. Will go there again in time and hope they get their act together and follow the advice of the Health Dept. reports

We ate at this diner twice while in town and would go back when we visit again. First time was breakfast - it was pretty crowded but we got in quickly. Food came out fairly fast and everything was great. Second time was late at night, as we were returning from the Hershey New Years Eve celebration and realized we... More

The food is typical diner food. The staff, though, were really friendly and kind even around the holidays, which we really appreciated. Also, their hours were fantastic. It was great knowing that a place with decent food would almost always be open in town while visiting.

We appreciated that the diner was open late (we tried the Soda Jerk first and they were closes). We got our food relatively quickly but it took about 45 minutes to get the check. The chilli was good but the potato skins were soggy. Milkshake was nice and thick and made with chocolate ice cream.

We were a group of 6 which included 4 children and figured how bad could a diner be. Well, being that everything in the area had a 45 minute to an hour wait and the diner wasn't even half full should have been a sign. But we were all starving and tired after a busy day and just wanted something... More

We went to the diner for breakfast. We decided to eat there because it was cheaper than hotel restaurant. The waitress was in no hurry to take our order or bring drinks. Food was average and nothing special. Felt like being in a Waffle House.

Good food, and decent-sized portions. Big selection to choose from, and friendly staff. Had a nice "diner"-vibe as well. Overall a nice place to stop after a long day at Hershey Park.
