Stopped for breakfast on the way to Slades Pumpkin Farm. Terrific greeting from the staff as we entered!! Even though the place was crowded, we got a table almost immediately. We were given our beverages and our waitress came shortly after. The grandkids got exactly what they wanted. The " Mickey Mouse" pancake was terrific. They even brought chocolate chips... More

I had breakfast here many time and very good each time. Its your diner with limited seating, fast service, and LOTS of good food. Mostly locals here who know a good value with great taste. Parking gets tight in the AM rush. This is a great place to explore when you are in the area. I recommend this place! Happy... More

Granny's Diner is our favorite place in Antioch for Breakfast. The food is excellent. The quantity is more than generous and price is great. The service is excellent and the staff is friendly. We are always greeted by name. My grandson and I used to go weekly until he moved to Florida. On a visit back on Easter he insisted... More

We decided to try Granny's this morning. Was busy but there were tables open. Clean, nice decor. Staff were experienced and friendly. Ordered a Texas burger, meat lovers omelet, and two half kitchen sinks (one with bacon and one with ham). Two drinks and two coffees all for just under $40. Really enjoyed and looking forward to going back!

Great restaurant for a quick breakfast. The food was served very hot and very fresh tasting. The have specials for breakfast and lunch. We have visited Granny's numerous times and have never been disappointed. The restaurant is small so you may have to wait, but the short wait will be worth it.

I write this with love for Mom and Pop places and a desire to help them make their business better. Since I also rely heavily on Tripadvisor for discerning reviews, I owe similar devotees the real scoop. The place was bustling (80% retired men) so it certainly has a following and it makes you think you have found a real... More
