Hands-down best breakfast diner in the area. Huge servings at small prices. Love everything but the coffee. Too weak for me. Staff super friendly and you can't beat the price.

Real retro diner in a little strip mall. Waitresses never need to move from behind the counter, because every table is accessible from behind the counter. They serve breakfast and lunch, excellent hash browns and very good coffee. If you aspire to be a Townie, eat here often.....

It was off the beaten path. We were looking for a restaurant that had seating on Mother's day and were happy to find this. They were playing old-time piano tunes on the radio.

My gram has gone for years and I go occasionally. My fall back is the tilz burger, but fried clams are great and chowder. Breakfast pancakes are huge so decide how hungry you are before you order.

I can understand why local people eat here every morning. We stop in whenever we're in the area. I like to sit at the counter, watching the cook. It's like being a kid again in the 50's watching gramma cook breakfast for everyone. Great food, good hearty portions without overdoing it, friendly staff, good music from bygone days. I could...

5 stars times 2. Sunday breakfasts perfect food, service and atmosphere. Don't cheat yourself-try it. Sunday mornings will never be the same. And I am usually a tough critic!!

Tilz is a wonderful little spot to grab a quick, nothing-fancy meal. The staff is always helpful and courteous and the food does the trick. Great value for the money,

Your basic home town diner. A good selection of American fair. Good size portions, you won’t leave hungry. Sit in a booth or at the counter. We walk there every now and then, just had a nice meal to finish off the summer school break.
