Our food is consistently good, with breakfast served all day. The menu has a wide range of pure comfort food made from scratch, including biscuits and beef gravy. Hand cut fries and hand dipped shakes are just a couple of the things that make this restaurant the best diner in town.

    So far we have had a very very rude person serving us at the bar. Hopefully the food will make up of his poor attitude.

    The hostess has a difficult time understanding that a wheelchair can only fit with certain tables. Frustrating.

    Absolute worst service I've ever had at a restaurant. Waiters walked by table multiple times. Then took the drink order of a table that sat down way after us. Had 2 go 2 bar 2 get our own drink order

    The menu includes anything you could possibly be craving, though it's hard to go wrong with a BLT and fresh-cut fries. This version in Grand Center is City Diner’s younger sibling. By Gabe Hartwig

    The trio grilled cheese may look like a meditation on beige, but it doesn't taste boring. Pair it with battered, perfectly seasoned fries — each bite part crunch and part tender potato. (Betha Whitlow

    Decent burger, bland fries, don't bother with the Mac an cheese. Red velvet cake, however, is to die for.
