Great family meal. Homemade tenderloins, juicy burgers, and friendly service. 2 adults 2 kids, a couple special requests and the staff was happy to accommodate. A true family operation, not a corporate restraunt. Home made and good food. Small place with a friendly atmosphere. The dad does the cooking, the wife Lisa is the head waitress. My family is looking... More

No chicken 1.5 hours before closing. Hot roast beef sandwich 2 toasted pieces of bread with a stingy smashed hamburger, mashed potatoes and gravey. For around $8.00. Hamburger other people ordered looked good. Tenderloin sandwich also looked good. Will not be going back not a breakfast eater two eggs toast two pieces of bacon with hashbrowns for $9.00!!

OK. This is the place to stop and grab breakfast when you've got time for a hometown homegrown breakfast. I am absolutely in love with the homemade corn beef hash. Yum! If you're in the market for lunch the tenderloins are outstanding. This is an awesome little place for a couple to grab a quick bite before going out for... More

I lived in Pekin over 35 years ago for a few months. During that time I ate at Andy's several times and always enjoyed the food. I moved away and had not been back in all that time. Recently my wife and I were in Pekin and decide to try Andy's. The first thing I noticed was the building looked... More

It had been years since I have eaten at Andy's Diner. I use to get fried chicken that was good. But this was my first time eating breakfast. I had one of the specials; 2 eggs, meat, potato, and toast. It was affordable and the portions are generous. I didn't eat it all and usually I do. I am a... More

Breakfast is amazing. I had the "Mess" and I think I'm addicted to it now. Prices are reasonable and you get plenty of food. Pleasant and very friendly staff. Quick service and always kept my husband's coffee cup full. Would recommend Andy's to everyone.

This place is a hidden treasure. The food is wonderful (I had eggs, sausage and pancakes - which were huge!) The service was great. Everyone there is so friendly. You get a lot of fantastic food for a great price. I will definitely be back to try their lunch menu and there's no doubt I will be back for their... More

Great little diner. I usually have breakfast; the omelets are wonderful. Gracious waitstaff and no long wait for your order. If going for lunch, you MUST have their wonderful home cut french fries. Lisa and Dan do a great job!

You will not be disappointed in Andy's. Although it doesn't have the look of a vintage diner, Andy's has been around for a long time. Excellent breakfast place, but just as good for lunch. Great burgers. Fresh food, made to order. All the wait staff are incredibly friendly. Andy's is a place we define as an "Out of Town" restaurant... More
