This is about the best place around for a real breakfast. I'm sure they have a wider selection but we only go there for breakfast. The food is good, plentiful and can be trusted to be consistently good and filling.

Had lunch at Union Street Diner while in Athens for Dad's weekend. Short wait for a table. They turn around the tables quickly. Service was quick. Best burger I had while visiting Athens. I had the Fire cracker burger and it lived up to its name. Burger had great flavor. Will be back to eat here again.

This probably is a well known spot for anyone visiting Athens. I know there were a lot of local eating here when we stopped. They serve breakfast all day which was perfect after a long night out on the town. I can't say it was the best greasy spoon I've been to, but they seem to do things right. I... More

Upon my daughter, a senior at OU, we stopped in for breakfast. Although a little tightly packed, the wait wasn't long, and the food and service were great! Definitely a great little place!

Great food, great service, great value. If you are a regular, I recommend the gift card. You will save every time you use it and you can share the savings with your server. ;-)

We ate the Philly cheesesteak (me) and a cheeseburger (my daughter ) and had good service but food was just ok . Think the burger was better than the Philly. Philly was light on meat and big on bread; which wasn't very soft /fresh . Fries came w both and were pretty basic . Place was nice enough. Just nothing... More

Four of us gathered here for brunch at the end of Homecoming weekend. A Reuben, a Philly, a quesadilla, and an omelet later, we agreed it was fantastic. Jackie O's makes great bread and rolls!

My family went here right after an OU football game. Were seated immediately, there were just 3 of us. It is very casual. Food was good, nice variety on menu. Service was excellent. Prices were adequate for what was served. We wanted someplace we could get in and out of without waiting on a busy weekend for the OU Parents... More

We've been to Athens a lot, now have a senior at OU. I'm not sure how we've missed USD. I challenge you to not find something great on the menu. My cheeseburger was humongous. Everyone else had breakfast foods which were great. And the staff did us a big favor, helping us switch tables when our party went from 4... More

We ate lunch and the food was very good. There are daily specials and today was Chopped Steak with Mashed Potatoes and gravy. The service was really, really good!
