if you want good, old fashion southern home cooking, reasonably priced, friendly staff and a real old diner...then this is the place. Biscuits and Gravy ummmm ummmm good, local fish plates, chicken fried steak. This dinner isn't more than ten minutes from the interstate and when you leave you can return to the highway one exit down. A real easy... More

The diner is a local mainstay for the residents of downtown and the surrounding area. This establishment has been in business since the 40s. I really appreciate the breakfast atmosphere. The food is great and the service is wonderful. I especially like the oyster platter or the garbage omelet when I stop in. This place is a must if you... More

Can't say when the last time was when the coffee was undrinkable, but had to send it back. The food unremarkable and overpriced. Menu charges extra for bacon, potatoes, all the good stuff that comes with eggs. If you are in the Valley and want a great breakfast, go to Weasies in Waynesboro (not really close to Hburg, but it...

The food was great, but it didn't come for over an hour. They were busy and had to make people move over on the bar to fit 3 of us because its so small in there. After the wait and high price for breakfast at least the food was good. They close at 1pm or 12:30pm everyday and are closed... More

Don't expect fancy tables or wait staff to seat you. You can expect to sit at the counter 'diner style' and engage the staff and patrons in friendly conversation while you watch your breakfast being cooked. I had the Garbage Omelette with Rye Toast, wife had scrambled eggs, grits with wheat toast. Other than wife's eggs a bit on the... More

Very nice, cozy, friendly dinner that is home to many locals in the area. Food is very good and reasonably priced, prepared right on the grill in front of you. I tried the "salt fish" that was good, but a bit strong for my taste buds. The locals rave about it! Glad we found it and we will be sure... More

Traveling on motorcycles on our way to the Shenandoah valley, we had gotten lost in Harrisonburg. Working our way out of town, we accidentally ran into this place. Being hungry, we stopped immediately, because of the looks. And we found a place how an American diner should be: by the outside and the inside appearance, food, people, and prices. So... More

One of the few places left in Harrisonburg with the old time feel. You can eat with everyone from the Mayor to the homeless guy. The food is diner food and is good, but diner food. The atmosphere is what you come for.

Hubby and I stopped in on our way to Asheville, and were not disappointed. It is an old fashion diner, with a bar only. Not the most comfy seats, but authentic. Wait staff friendly and efficient. I love biscuits and they have the BEST. Standard breakfast fare, cooked at the grill in front of you. Next time we are in... More

We're from the UK and have just come back from visiting our friends in Harrisonburg. VA. On the last day of our visit my youngest Daughter told me that she wanted to eat in a real American diner, so we were directed to this one by the railway tracks. Wow ! I'm not sure whether there is a diner that... More
