I was really impressed with the waitstaff here and their engagement with the food on the menu and making recommendations. The stir fry was great- as was the queso dip and cheese. If I lived here I'd definitely return.

Magnolia is what a diner should be, funky, friendly, lots of coffee and good, hearty eats. I was just turned onto this place by a long time local, and it is awesome. Just come in, and chill.
