So A town which I'm guessing used to be a Carl's Jr. by the set up of the building had little redeeming quality. After waiting a half hour for a table (which is understandable on a Sunday morning). We were sat down to an unclean table. It took 10 minutes for a waiter to first come by. Coffee refill must... More

A-Town is a diner plan and simple. The menu has everything you'd expect at a first-rate diner with some interesting additions. We're locals and especially like the breakfasts as they have a good variety of pancakes/waffles, omelettes, egg and meat combinations and my favorite Biscuits and Gravy. Everything we've ordered we've enjoyed, staff are all very friendly and professional and... More

We love to come and visit A-Town Diner. All meals have been great and the customer service excellent. I would suggest that when Hot Aug. Nights/Car shows are in town to have specials set up. This diner is perfect for the old vintage cars set up.

This is a family dinner. The food is good, the service is great and the price is easy on the pocketbook. This restaurant has glutton free options, which is a plus.

Stopped by here for dinner after seeing a movie nearby. This place is on the main drag in Atascadero with plenty of free parking. Their menu is fairly extensive and the food and service was very good overall. I would highly recommend this place if you find yourself in the area.

Okay, so I live in A-Town and could be considered somewhat biased but even so if you can't depend on a local, who can you trust! Just to let you know, I had some ribs from them and they were great. I wish I could eat more but I don't want to be a hog. There are plenty of ribs... More

Stopped here for dinner on the way down south. My husband & I split the Cobb salad and a burger. The salad was fantastic! Really fresh greens and veggies, real turkey, packed full of goodies and huge. We should have ordered the half as opposed the the full size. The burger was pretty average! Certainly not bad - just not... More

This a local place that most people go to eat. The food is good and service varies depending on whom waits on you. They have daily specials that are reasonable. Sunday's can get crowded after church.

It is in the same ballpark as Denny's or any of those other not so fancy breakfast restaurants. A-Town is crowded, which is a good problem to have. Once you are seated, service is pretty fast, but they like a high turn over. Food was basic, nothing special. Staff was nice. I went with a few other people, and I... More

We went here last Sunday for lunch with some friends. The food was good, I had a turkey burger and it was very good. The service was slowish with regard to getting the food on the table. Not the fault of the waitress. It also seems a bit pricy for what is offered.
