Some friends brought me here for lunch, and the salad I had was delicious. The house tomato vinaigrette is amazing! But as a previous reviewer said, the booth seating is uncomfortably low. Sit at a table, or bring a THICK pillow. But I hope to come back to try more of the food.

I can't believe this place is in business! Every time I try to enter this place with an open mind and the restaurant just sucks. It ALWAYS smells like mildew in there and it's an overwhelming strong moldy odor. The food is so blah and slow. This place used to have the best breakfast in town, but now it's not... More

You know, the food is OK here. Breakfast, and lunch is what I'm most familiar with . I just went again today. And I realized what doesn't sit right about this place. Its the booths! Something is just not right when a person who is 5 ft 11 feels like they need a booster seat! The booth seats are either... More

I am blessed to live less than a half mile from the Mack Avenue Diner. I dine there about 4 times a year and I would dine there more except that I have access to incredible breakfast every day at the hand of my girlfriend (...and she is a really great cook). When she accepts a day off or holiday,... More

Great food, good portions and a friendly staff and management team. The Reuben soup is amazing and the omelette choices for morning breakfast makes this a great weekend treat. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Ladies and Gents, forget the chain style businesses!! Take a dive into your local diners that go out of their way to please you with diverse menus items and fantastic weekly features!

Been here many times. The owners are always present - working and making customer contact. The food is really fantastic. Simply put - eat here - you won't have any regrets. Daily specials are beyond level of a "diner" yet priced very fair.
