Delicious food, fast and friendly service and so affordable! It was $18 for 2 adults and a child’s breakfast. The sausage links are delicious, as is the French toast with fresh berries, and blueberry pancakes made with fresh blueberries.

Simply put, we did what everyone else would do, we went to the liquor store that also sells fireworks (lol) and asked what’s the best place to eat breakfast and she told us , hands down you got to eat at Jody’s Diner. Service was...quick and friendly. Food was made and delivered quickly to our table. Quantity and quality was very good. I’d come back again for sure. Highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area.More

Really good food and super nice staff. We were in on Father’s Day so we had a short wait but it was worth it. The place was crammed with locals, always a good sign!

If you need to stop in Evanston for a meal and you’re looking for something besides the usual fast food joints, this is the place to go. It is a prototypical diner but the food is wonderful, the service is timely and the prices are...very reasonable. Even though we stopped in the evening during dinner time, my wife had Jody’s breakfast and loved it. I had a Navajo taco with side of onion rings. We didn’t have to wait long for our food and it was delicious. This looks like a place that is popular among the locals (lots of Wyoming plates in the parking lot). We drive through Evanston a lot and we will definitely be back.More

Classic small town friendliness, local color, classic American breakfasts, great service. Very busy on Saturday morning. Our motel didn't have breakfast as advertised; we ended up glad about that as it got us to Jody's. There's a trailhead for a short hike to the river...nearby, that was fun after filling ourselves up for the drive home.More

We stopped here for breakfast while driving back to Colorado. The staff was very kind. Our son had to eat before we really got going on the road. He ate everything including part of his Dad''s. Everything was fresh and great

We (2) were travelling through Evanston and saw Jody's Diner. We had more time than planned so we stopped. SO glad we did. A quintessential American diner, you probably dont even need a menu, you can guess what they have. And it was all GOOD!...If you stop by, be adventurous and go for the beer-battered french fries. Yum! Service was very friendly, classic small-town. Not too busy at 3 pm on a Friday but full of locals who all know each other! That kind of vibe. If I lived here, would go in regularly myself. Places like Jody's have been hit hard by the pandemic, and were a dying breed before that. Do yourself and them a favor and stop by if you are in this neck of the woods.More

We loved this place. Went twice. Staff was so friendly and quick. The food was great. For sure will stop when in Evanston. We're only 95 miles away and already talked about just a day trip to get to eat here again.

After several long hours of driving, we were starving and didn't want fast food. This stop was just what we needed. Our waitress was the best. So attentive but not annoying. The food came out quickly and was good ole fashioned home cooking. If we...ever get back this way, this is where we will stop.More

We had tried to have lunch at a place in town which ended up not being open for lunch. Google sent us here. We loved this place. The dining area was clean, the waitress were very friendly ( thank you Venise ) The portions were...plenty and the price reasonable. We had chicken fried steak, fish fry, and breakfast with gravy and bisquits. We WILL be back and hope YOU all will give it a try!!!!More
