Ordered a grilled cheese & fries, soup of day- taco. Greasy. They may have had a change of ownership and/or staff. In the middle of a remodel. Will give it one more try.

You may have to park & walk a ways but it's worth it. They make good sandwiches, salad & soup. Box lunches delivered locally for groups of 5 or more. It's an old fashioned, no thrills diner with friendly service.

We go for breakfast at least once a week. Bill is a great guy and Melissa is a fun and friendly waitress. On Friday breakfast is not served after 1100 am because of the $5 burger special. It's a good deal. It's good food for a decent price.

We first stopped at the Lunch Box when it stood in space by itself around the corner from its current location. The eatery moved to be next to Bill's Diner. Both have the same owners and offer a menu with the Lunch Box offerings (mostly salads and sandwiches) on one side and those for Bill's Diner on the other. Customers... More

Usually fast service, good food and different selections of soup. Good value for the money. Setting is a little funky with all kinds of "lunch boxes" decorating the interior.

I finally found it. I work in Mount Vernon and was craving a good gluten free sandwich. Doesn't matter whether it's gf or not, it's great! I order pick up often and they also deliver to our office. And there pastries, scrumptious! It's a cute little quaint place in downtown Mount Vernon. Highly recommend for a low key, delicious meal!

Our first visit to Mount Vernon, and we happened to stop at The Lunch Box for a late lunch. A "down home" café, friendly, clean, modest. I ordered the soup of the day, taco soup, and a salad. Fantastic! Great prices, best taco soup I've had. Stopping here isn't about fancy, just good basic food and service. This will be... More

I can't vouch for all their meals, but we had a breakfast here and while it was tasty, it certainly couldn't be called hearty. I was a bit disappointed that it only included a single slice of toast. Staff was pleasant, but very obviously bored as we were the only ones in the place at about 10:00 a.m. It's decorated... More

A nice little place tucked in off the street near the pizzeria. Very friendly staff with fast service. Variety of sandwiches, soup, and salads. Our family of 8 seated nicely with the price was right. Recommended.
