My fiancé and I stumbled upon this small diner while we were in town for a week and made it a point to go another two times because it was so good. Everything was cooked to perfection and I could put the green mojito sauce on anything! So delicious! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Meat, 3 sides, bread and drink buffet was absolutely great! Large portions, everything was hot, and really great tasting. Someone bought breakfast and they said it was great!

The best American breakfast we have had since arriving in the US last year. Great size portions of good home cooking. The beef hash was delicious. The only reason they didn't get a five was the toilets weren't exactly desirable.

If your expecting something better. Than IHOP and Waffle House, this is it. Home style with first rate ingredients, all cooked to order perfectly and served up hot. Some of the best eggs Benedict I've had. French Toast perfectly flavored and cooked with grade a bacon.

Great home town diner. I tried the sausage biscuit plate. Very tasty and filling. Sausage was a bit spicy. Omelet ordered was very good and great fruit plate was great. Service was good and staff was friendly.

Just a couple of blocks from the hospital and my doctor's office but don't tell him I ate at Derek's. I went for breakfast on a Tuesday morning at about 10:30. You would think that the place would be empty but there were only two open booths. A Derek's omelet (sausage, bacon, peppers, tomatoes, cheese and who knows what else)... More

Unbelievable dining experience for breakfast. What a hole in the wall.. But... The food is goood. Lunch pulled pork, slow cooked. That with the beans and steamed cauliflower is the ticket. Come for lunch with your girlfriend, the bench vibrates when the train passes 5 feet from the back of the building. She should like it. Ambiance is, well missing,... More

Open for breakfast and lunch only. Good coffee, great omelettes, attentive waitresses. This is a great place to meet your buddies in a very casual atmosphere to solve the world's problems over a spicy Garden Omelette, crisphashbrowns and a bottomless cup of coffee. Spectacular sandwiches - especially Cuban sandwiches. Lunch is served cafeteria style.

Good basic meat and three. Very friendly staff. The chicken was tender and well seasoned. Vegetable were all seasoned but not salty. No mushy veggies. Price is reasonable. Very fast service. I will go back to try breakfast menu. Quick drive from Marietta especially the medical center (kennestone area) or national park.
