Definitely worth stopping in and having lunch or dinner. Not much else in Alva but this place is a great destination.

I had breakfast at the Alva Country Diner on Sunday morning March 5. I did enjoy my country breakfast and the peppery country gravy. It is a good down home welcoming place the likes of which you only see inland away from the coasts of the state where locals eat.

Love the Alva Diner. Eat there at least three times a week. Their fried catfish is the best I've ever eaten and I was raised in the south. Go Wed or Sat for the cat fish special

Restaurant is a little rough, a lot outdated. That's they only reason I didn't give them a better rating. I prefer not to eat there, but, they make great cheeseburgers and fries. Breakfast time is very busy, it's probably for their huge pancakes. Good southern food

Travel a few miles outside of Lehigh Acres and you will find a diner with great tastin' broasted chicken that is definitely finger lickin' good! Add to that a cheerful staff and you get a 'Happy' Meal :) When not familiar with the roads in this part of town (Alva, FL), the location may be hard to find so try... More

There's not a lot of food places in the area of Lehigh Acres so we ventured just outside of it and found this diner. I'm glad we did! They serve really good "Broasted Chicken" - crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The 1/2 order was good enough for my husband and I. It came with either soup... More

I have lived here for 20 plus years and this little country diner is always been nothing but great. For those of you that visit here, I would recommend eating here. Excellent breakfast with biscuits and gravy to die for. Their dinners are always served with warm homemade breads. This place is cash only but you won't be disappointed.

This is an amazing CASH ONLY place with great service and food. Weekends tend to be busy. But it is well worth the wait.
