On a cold, icy and rainy morning, we made our way to The Diner on our one day stopover in Norman, Oklahoma. The Diner is the best. The small, narrow restaurant with a counter on one side and a row of tables on the other...More

We are triple d nerds so we just had to try this out. Wait was about 10 minutes. They use the honor system, no name taking. Hubby had brisket hash and a side of chili. I had the eggarito. Everything was great!

We went here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The wait wasn't too long, we sat on the stools at the counter and was right by the grill where the cooking was taking place....GREAT pancakes! Loved the food and the experience.

I understand that the Diner can have a line out the door on some morning, but we got in on Saturday morning, at a bit before 8 a.m., without any wait. This restaurant is very, very small, and is an instant flash back to the...More

Must try something with chili! We had the Frito chili pie and the burrito. I would never have thought to order a burrito with chili in it, but it was amazing!
