I can't believe I've lived in Norman for 30+ years and never been here. Finally made it for lunch with my husband and we each had a burger. They were seasoned and cooked nicely. I got fries but unless you eat them right away, they...More

The food looked good. The service was good. They told us after we were served the pepper's were hotter than usual. Most places ask if you want the pepper's or not. That way the business saves on the amount of peppers used and people who...More

We have to hit the diner every trip. Very filling breakfast and delicious! "Ranchero sauce" is more like green chili and is so good. Omelets are good sized. Pancakes delicious. Hubs got tamale breakfast , which was huge and very tasty. Several Mexican options available,...More

I have been here in the past and have had good meals but on out last visit the food was way too spicy. I had an omelette and there was mostly just peppers and onions in it. Not much egg or cheese to it. I...More

We went with some friends to The Diner for breakfast (which is served all day) and it was excellent. This is a moderately priced restaurant. Serving portions are huge and breakfast did not disappoint! This restaurant is not much on atmosphere, but the food and...More

Had gotten a recommendation about the Diner from a friend. Arrived about 8:30 on Sunday morning. The inside was small, with approximately 10 or so booths and a counter area that probably seats 12. All the booths were occupied, but there were a couple open...More

The eggs Benedict were delicious, though the fried egg was different vs a poached egg. My two eggs over medium with hash browns and bacon were pretty boring, but.... that’s pretty boring anyway. Got a booth early no problem, but the waitstaff had zero personality...More

We had an amazing breakfast. It is seriously good food and a bit of a throw back in time. Be prepared for a wait, but the line moves fast. Also, it is a line and there is no putting your name on the list.
