I do not know the history of Ross's Diner, or even how long it's been there, but it seems to have been opened in the 50's and still has that same look and feel. Basic diner food, consistent quality and friendly staff. You could call it retro except that this is the real thing. We enjoy it a lot.

I thought the food was average. The okra was fried too long, the chicken was ok, the field peas were good, the peach pie wasn't too tasty, the sweet tea was great, the biscuit was burned, the service was great, the prices are good. Even though the food probably isn't the draw to this diner, everyone in there knew everyone... More

Food was COLD!!!! Do not understand the fascination with this restaurant. The service was good but that's all that was good.

Nothing really stands out about this place or the food. It was good but nothing to write home about. I got eggs, ham and hash browns with biscuit/gravy. I did not care much for the gravy...not much flavor. The biscuits were on the heavy side and could not tell if these were handmade or canned. Now the toast was probably... More

We absolutely love the food here. They have the best fried okra (okry) I have tasted. We love their gravy, chili, onion burgers. Also their steak and gravy is so good.. I love their garden picked peppers during the summer. All the food is delicious. Yummy. Mr. Ross was one of the sweetest men you could know as was his... More

Right in the heart of downtown Cartersville across for the old Depot. This diner is a throwback to any old counter service you remember from years ago. We eat here for breakfast often and are never disappointed. Expect a train to pass by while you dine only adding to the experience.Good food, good price, and great friendly service!

If you like Breakfast like Grandma use to make this is the place. Nothing fancy, just good food with friendly service at a reasonable price.
