The food is all comfort, location is easy access, the atmosphere is OK. Could probably use a good scrubbing in that the years are kind of showing of the wear and tear.

The food is really good for a very reasonable price. The decor is right out of the fifties. We'll be back.

We were excited to stop at such a cute diner while driving from South Lake Tahoe to the Delta. Such great potential. We should have known to leave after being seated for a while and no attention from a server. Flies too. We finally were asked for our orders and the food came. Large quantities but all dishes were lacking... More

This diner is a neighborhood favorite. The breakfast portions are huge and the food is yummy. I had eggs with bacon and toast. After eating all I could, I had enough leftovers for another meal. In previous visits, I have had their Mexican food which is wonderful. The staff is friendly and efficient and the decor is in the 50's... More

Visited on 08/06/16 – Berts Diner, 8972 Grant Line Road, Elk Grove, CA 95624 We stumbled across this little gem whilst on the way to Merced. It is a proper ‘old school’ diner with juke boxes on the booth tables. You get 2 plays for 25 cents...bargain; before depositing your money though, check that none of the alpha-numerical buttons are... More

I've been here several times now and cannot really complain. The service and food has always been good and the portions you get are large and satisfying. It's a diner and lives up to most expectations. My only criticism is in recent years the place looks run down and needs improvements to bring its past 'feel good' factor back.

Berts' hamburger are fresh, tasty and perfectly cooked. The lettuce was crispy and the tomatoes were juicy

This is our favorite breakfast stop in the area. The food is good and over abundant. The biscuits our ginourmous. Leftovers are inevitable.

I used to frequent this place years ago, and I have been missing out. Service is great, portions are huge, and I left with my breakfast stuck to my gut, Lovin it!

This is a step back in time! The Diner is classic with curved glass block walls, stools at the counter and individual juke boxes at the booths. The service was great but the food was average. Ordered the Carne asada tacos with guacamole, but the guacamole wasn't fresh made. We were there for lunch, maybe breakfast is better. Fun for... More
