I've only eaten breakfast here, so can't attest to other menu offerings. Today I had the two eggs to order and corned beef. It also comes with two slices of buttered toast with a choice of white, wheat or rye. The eggs were cooked properly. The corned beef was the kind that comes from a can but that's the kind... More

I had breakfast at Dagwoods while on a trip to KC because I wanted to "visit" Kansas. The dining area was not full, yet I had to wait about 30 minutes for my food after I ordered.

This is a great little place for breakfast and lunch. A greasy spoon diner, yes, but the food is fantastic and fairly priced and the service is quick and friendly!

This is a longtime local favorite - a staple for breakfast before work. Just good old fashioned diner food, nothing fancy. Large portions and the food came out faster than it took to place the order.

For a little hole in the wall Diner I would recommend trying it out. We were there for breakfast and for the price that we paid for our meal the food was awesome. The staff was friendly and the service was excellent and the portions of food was awesome.

The southwest omelet is full of bacon and super delicious. They don't have decaf coffee but the southwest omelet is so good I don't care. Very relaxed atmosphere, recently painted. I've only been for breakfast, and like sitting on the section facing the street. Bright and cheery, including the staff.

Really good traditional breakfast! Last time I had the breakfast scramble and a waffle. Hubby had the Dagwood sandwich. Always good! Will definitely go back for other goodies. I prefer local flair over chain restaurants, so anytime I get the opportunity to go to local joints I do it. This one didn't disappoint.
