We were on our way to tour Hoover Dam and my wife needed to get something to eat, so we went into the historic section of Boulder City and I saw the Southwest Diner. Something about it said, "Stop Here!" so we did and so glad we did too. If you've looked at the other reviews, you kind of know... More

On our way to the Hoover Dam, we decided to stop and get breakfast. This was right on the way, and lived up to the positive reviews. Excellent service, good food (as their name says, there is a southwestern vibe to usual American food), and a chic retro vibe to the decor. We enjoyed our morning at the Dam and... More

This is a diner with attitude! Super-fun decorations outside and inside, with daily home-made pie. A good American diner menu, as well as good Tex Mex selection.

Went to the Southwest Diner for a late lunch. The food is delicious and the service is AWESOME. All four of us had something different to eat. The fries are amazing and the serving sizes are HUGE. I wish there was a Southwest Diner in Muncie, IN.

We saw this on our way to the Hoover Dam so made a point to have lunch there on the way back. What a treat it was! Lots of great stuff to look at outside and in. Very friendly staff there and the food was so good! Plenty of it, had to take some home and finished it at supper.... More

This was our second time stopping in as we were driving through Boulder City. Both times we received friendly service and good food. The diner has a homey feel and drinks are served out of Mason jars. We were a group of 6 and we all enjoyed our meals.

Like many before us, we were out of Vegas heading to the dam tour and Grand Canyon. We were looking for some breakfast and stumbled across this gem. We all left full at a fair price. Great down home cooking. Plan your trip to stop here for a meal.

The food was ok and feel like a dinner at someone's home while you're having a good time. The servers are very friendly and I did love the decorations!
