We were visiting Pontiac and decided to stop here for breakfast. I ordered the vegetarian skillet and my husband tried the corned beef hash skillet.

Pontiac Family Kitchen is truly worth the side trip off of I-55. It also is worth a stop if you're traveling on old Route 66.

Had dinner here last night. Service was prompt and polite meals are all priced moderately. Food very tasty. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a family on a budget and looking for a menu with a variety.

We go to the area frequently to visit family. Each time I have to eat at the Family Kitchen. The spinach and feta cheese omelet is wonderful and I usually have to take half home so I can get my Belgian waffle. I'm good for the whole day after that.

We happened to be in the area on a Friday night and on the recommendation of our hotel manager we called by. A friendly place with efficient service and a great value for money fish fry - a pity we were only able to go once!

Owner is super friendly as is his staff. It is small town type of diner that meets the need. Good food and reasonably priced. We are fortunate to have it as an option in town.
