Have eaten breakfast there several times, always hot and fresh. Good selection with reasonable prices. Fast and friendly service. Friends say their dinner specials are also very good and reasonably priced as well.

You can't do better! The food is great and the employees are exceptional. All of their smoked meets are wonderful. The breakfast is also remarkable.

My friend raved about how good the meat was here. I should have known better though-my friend likes mac and cheese and fettuccine alfredo, so his taste buds are not very developed. Long story short, we go there and the burger was average and overpriced,...More

Not much to say other than great food great service and you never go away hungry. The chicken fried steak skillet was extremely tasty. We try to go here regularly and every time we say we should go more!

The burnt ends with Jamaica jerk sauce was excellent. The Homemade potato salad and mac & cheese superb. The patty melt was fantastic and the home cut fries very tasty.

The food is outstandind, the service and owner exceptionally friendly, food is at a fair price but in my opinion the beverage cost closes the gap between a reasonable bill and a average one. Still worth the trip.

Food is decent, especially the breakfast platter. Unfortunately, the owner runs the place like a bully. I've seen & experienced it myself. If you complain about anything, the fights on. His favorite thing to say is that he doesn't need your business, go away. This...More

My wife and I go to Smokey's diner occasionally for breakfast or lunch. The place is very neat and clean and the staff is great. The owners and their daughter run the place, so that tells me they want things right. The food is excellent...More
