Food is ok. Service not so good. Decor not very good. It looks clean. I did not like the fact that they don't clean the dirty dishes when you are done eating. I also felt rushed.

We stopped in for lunch and many tables were already filled before noon. We each ordered different menu items and our choices were good. Will try breakfast and visit again.

We love coming here for breakfast, where we always order the special. Their coffee is delicious. We've had dinner here twice. They offer quite a variety, and a generous amount. Meals come with soup or salad, and dessert. Such a deal! A few caveats for you who have never been to Good Times: ask for dry toast at breakfast. Otherwise,... More

We just arrived back to Englewood and wanted a quick dinner so we stopped at Good times Diner. We had breakfast there in the past and it was always great, but not dinner. What a pleasant surprise. A very extensive menu. I had a chimichanga, and was the best I have had anywhere! My wife had grouper and was great.... More

Good omelets and home fries. French toast was ok. Very affordable. Nice friendly atmosphere. Staff knows the regulars. Coffee mug stays topped off.

Waffle was awesome, although they had package syrup, but sugar-free syrup in a bottle on table. Good prices, would recommend to friends for breakfast. Waitress was friendly to regulars, but stand-offish to others.

The Good Times Diner in Englewood, Florida, is just what you need when you want a good, cheap breakfast, lots of menu options and a relaxed atmosphere. Everyday has a $3.95 breakfast special. There are also specials for lunch and dinner. It is a little hidden in a strip mall and the dark windows make it hard to see what... More

We were desperate for a good cup of coffee and some breakfast when we stumbled onto this almost hidden gem. Tucked into the Publix shopping plaza. This is where the locals go. We loved it. Service was excellent and the food terrific.

Spouse & I have eaten here several times both for breakfast & lunch. Daily specials are very inexpensive. Food is good but this is not a gourmet restaurant. Staff have worked here for years and provide friendly & very good service. Will likely continue to eat here at least once a week.
