We stopped into Karen's Diner for the first time recently. Our pancakes, bacon, eggs, and biscuits with gravy were all tasty. No frills, simple food prepared to order. Leave the plastic in your wallet, as they accept cash only.

Nothing fancy, just good wholesome diner fare. I’ve been there a number of times for breakfast. Never disappointed. A local place most people know each other.

I like this little diner. Very conventient for me, on my way to everything.they don't accept cards, which is fine, I just had to run out and grab a few bills from my ashtray last time. Decent prices and very quick.

I have been here a couple of times and have always been happy with the food and service. The place is packed at breakfast time and their specials are really good.

If you are looking for that at home diner, look no further than Karen's! While the food is just "ok" it is the best small diner within 25 miles. The family like atmosphere will keep you coming back!
