We were looking for a Breakfast spot and happened upon Wilson's. In our travels we have found fewer and fewer old fashioned diners, so this was a treat. While I had a toasted western, my husband had the breakfast platter with eggs, bacon, pancakes and home fries. Our meals were good! My only recommendation is to take a pass on... More

This is a classic small town diner. The menu (breakfast all day!) includes breakfast and lunch items that you would expect. Greeted by the staff as if we'd been there a thousand times, we both ordered our ham & Swiss omelets, toast and tea and were treated while waiting to the banter back and forth between cook, server and regulars....

If you want flaccid and burnt home fries, soggy toast, tasteless eggs and French toast, and your order to be given away to other clients, then by all means head over. Otherwise avoid it like the plague.

Just try it..you'll love it. Don't be turned off by the outside, inside is warm and friendly, the owner/cook is the nicest man and he truly wants you to be happy.

The prices are unbelievable. The food pretty average but a fun experience. I had lunch but would consider going back for breakfast based the prices in the menu.

A terrific old diner with yummy coffee, and a really good breakfast ~ my favorite, a bacon and American cheese omelet! Buttered toast with extra butter...and hash browns. There lies my only issue. I love crispy, oniony potatoes, and these don't quite make it. My buddy Arthur is in full command of his grill...a stellar man who works his heart... More

Best breakfast I've had in a long time. The chef/owner is amazing to watch. He is told once what wait staff calls out and doesn't miss a beat. Entertaining... Eggs perfect as and bacon crispy. Can't beat this old time diner.

Typical old style diner. Very dated but the food is not bad. Parking in adjacent lot. Prices are average. Lunch consists of a few specials such as meatloaf or stuffed peppers I believe it is of Greek ownership. Dishes and utensils are very dated.

I went for breakfast at about 930 on a Monday morning. The place is run by a couple, he does the cooking and she takes care of waiting the tables. I ordered the corn beef hash and eggs and was told that it came with potatoes and toast. I asked for an English muffin and iced tea. When the plate... More

Had lunch here yesterday. Fast, delicious food served in this converted 1946 rail car. One chef does all the cooking and one server manages the booths and counter seating, all the while they're keeping up the banter with a host of locals and visitors like ourselves. All day breakfast, Greek and American specialties highlight the simple but yummy menu.
