We stopped here on our way to a boat trip. It does not look like much but the food was great. We had breakfast bacon eggs home fries sausage and pancakes. Toast coffees and waters. The whole thing was almost ;) more than we could eat. We left fat and happy. It cost about 22 dollars with a good tip.... More

Wasn't expecting to be in deland at lunch and had no internet, so couldn't check trip advisor. So had to find our our spot. Philly's chosen as car park full. We weren't disappointed. I had the Rocky 2 a big breakfast wrap packed with egg, with cheese and meat accompanied by the best and I mean the best county potatoes.... More

Cute little dinner couple miles off the river, good prices, good staff, delicious food. I suggest trying the "Clint Eastwood", hash browns cowered in cheese and chilly with eggs on top. The wait was a little longer then desired but no complaints from this foodie.

The Philly Diner is a no-frills restaurant with good country food served in a friendly manner. Our breakfast dishes were very tasty and came in generous proportions. Especially liked the corned beef hash that came with my scrambled eggs.

What a great hidden gem of a place. Great home cooked meals and plenty to choose from. Priced just right and HUGE portions! Just a tiny comment to the owner: paint the walls with a little bit of color to be more welcoming :)

I couldn't visit here without getting the cheese steak and I was not dissatisfied. Nice wait staff. Food was exceptional. If I'm back through this way, I will definitely stop here again.

Thank Mark R
