I stopped here for lunch with a friend and immediately wondered why it had taken me so long to discover this Norman classic. Even though the place was nearly packed, we were seated immediately in one of the booths. The menu is a simple front (breakfast) and back (lunch), but my friend asked for a variation on the breakfast side... More

We are triple d nerds so we just had to try this out. Wait was about 10 minutes. They use the honor system, no name taking. Hubby had brisket hash and a side of chili. I had the eggarito. Everything was great!

We went here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The wait wasn't too long, we sat on the stools at the counter and was right by the grill where the cooking was taking place....GREAT pancakes! Loved the food and the experience.

The Diner is a Norman classic. The place is always packed on the weekends. My wife and I were here just yesterday, and it was delicious as always. We like to sit at the counter and talk with the cooks. The amount and variety of meals that get produced from two people in a small space is very impressive. I... More

The best breakfasts in Norman are found at the diner. This is true whether you are a bacon and eggs, blueberry pancakes, or huevos rancheros fan. The decor is classic with booths and a counter with stools. The waitstaff is very friendly. Just be prepared to wait outside in line on weekend mornings.

I understand that the Diner can have a line out the door on some morning, but we got in on Saturday morning, at a bit before 8 a.m., without any wait. This restaurant is very, very small, and is an instant flash back to the Route 66 diners of the 50s and early 60s. The food is good and the... More

Eggaritos with hash browns, 2x2x2 with eggs over easy, sausage patties and the most delicious blueberry pancakes to ever cross these lips. Even my husband loved them (we shared) and he doesn't like blueberries! Coffee is good, wait staff is quick and efficient . Limited seating so prepare to stand outside in line on game days. And, no, there's no... More

Must try something with chili! We had the Frito chili pie and the burrito. I would never have thought to order a burrito with chili in it, but it was amazing!

This is one of the cutest diners around. The food is really, really good. Their bacon is out of this world. It is a very small diner so, be prepared for a wait on almost any morning you go but it is worth it. Once you are seated; the food is good, service is fast and friendly and the price... More

We have been eating at the Diner for almost 20 years. Unquestionably the best food in Norman. Whether you are looking for breakfast favorites (try the blueberry pancakes), to tamales, chili and, as my husband says, if you're really lucky, the best steak ever! Lines get long on the weekend, but wait it out! Totally worth it!

Thank missjo1964 .
