My Husband saw the show, Diner's Drive-in's and Dive's and we just had to go and experience the restaurant for ourselves. We also took our in-laws. I was really pleased with the service, we went on a Friday at 9:00 a.m. and we seated ourselves immediately. We ordered the Chorizo omelet, the waffle, the chicken fried stake, and the sausage and eggs. We were pleasantly surprised that the service was excellent, the food was very delicious and the coffee was perfect. Tomorrow (Saturday) we will return with family visiting from San Diego, CA. We are excited to show them the new Restaurant. My mother loves Menudo and we want her to try it tomorrow morning. We felt really happy with the entire atmosphere and surroundings, especially the FOOD! We hope to continue to go there and appreciate the delicious food. Thank you Guy F.

My parents and I went here for breakfast this morning. The food was great! I had the cheese omelette, and it came with home fries and your choice of bread. I chose (of course) the biscuit. I heard that they were really good. My parents also ordered biscuits. Dad got the Italian omelette with home fries and a biscuit. Mom got the Country Breakfast, which is eggs with (what else?) biscuits and gravy. I tried her biscuits and gravy, and they were so good! The biscuits were great--they definitely were homemade. My dad comented that his meat sauce was great. The price was high, but it was certainly made up for by the fresh ingredients and (of course) the biscuits. This was aFather's Day present for my dad, and it is a half-hour drive from our home. But the drive was worth it--this place did not dissapoint my family!

I drove by 3 times before I found it and the entrance. It was late, 1:30pm, 1 hour before closing, so it had plenty of seating. I was amazed at the [select]ion, thought the pricing a bit high, but boy, when I saw the plate, it was enough for 2 and the price was reasonable for the portions. The waitress was friendly. Clean diner, with clients that were there ranged from teenagers having burgers to elderly. Board had several specials of the day. Many clients were greeted by name. Can't wait to go back and try somethhing else on the menu. If you are a breakfaster lover (like me) you should be very happy. It's homestyle, good cookin'.

Like the other posts here, I am also a Food Network junkie. I saw the program (Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) with the host Guy Fieri. He seems like a credible enough food critic so I totally trusted his judgement when it came to this Gaffey St. Diner. I went with my family from Los Angeles and drove 40 miles (round trip) to get there...... this is not unusual for us as we have driven many more miles for a "great food find." Well, what a MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT!! First, the place was almost empty when we arrived and we still waited 10 minutes at the host station (as it said to please wait to be seated) only to have a waitress finally come over and tell us to sit wherever we wanted. I read all the specials on the board and decided on the French Toast Supreme (I think that was the name). This was the one featured on the show and it looked yummy on TV. Well, this french toast arrived cold and not even egg-dipped french toast...... it was simply cinnamon toast with some fresh fruit on it and whipped cream (for $10.50). When I cut into the piece of french toast, it was absolutely dry with no egg mixture absorbed through....... since it was a thick piece of bread, it requires extra soaking time for the bread to absorb........ it was barely drizzled, a real joke!!! What was Guy thinking?? So...... I also ordered the Eggs Benedict with the highly touted "homemade" hollandaise....... you must be kidding!!!!! The sauce was a fake yellow color with absolutely no taste of a true hollandaise sauce............. The ham was the only decent thing on the plate...... home fries weren't bad, at least they were hot. My mom ordered the biscuits and gravy, just okay, a bit on the tough side. My brother ordered the Menudo, the best thing on our table. I don't eat it, but he said it was very good. The waitress was doing her side work (since it was 1 hour before closing) and it was difficult to get her attention throughout the meal........ she forgot our coffee (after she told us a fresh pot was being brewed) and finally brought it over at the END of our meal. Mind you, the place was almost empty at this point and it shouldn't have been a challenge to remember this simple request. I would deal with these gliches if the food was worth it, but it was not. If you watched Guy, he totally gushed about the great food...... TOTALLY WRONG and to mirror the other post, was a waste of gas, time and most importantly, my stomach!!!!!!
