Small building, great food, got the cheese steak sandwich and onion rings, delicious, onion rings were great and the sandwich was excellent, cooled to perfection, not greasy and flavors were mingled just right. Lemonade was good as was the service. If you're close by, give them a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed

We ate at Little Diner on 1st today for the first time. The food was awesome! The western omlette was fantastic and their biscuit and gravy was superb. Portions are huge.. We will definitely be going back...soon!

Expected way better quality of food. Like most places they can't cook your food how you order it, when you ask for well done hashbrowns by the way these are no different than what you get out of a frozen food section in a grocery but anyway they weren't well done they were barely cooked, their scrambled eggs are a hard fried egg chopped up which makes them taste dry. Their version of toast is just throw it on a grill in oil, no butter just oil. And their gravy taste like cheap package gravy with no flavor. Can't really explain the grits, they had a good consistency just a bad watery flavor. I wish this place would put more into their quality and effort otherwise I'll stick to waffle house.

Delicious hot food that hits the spot! Great portion sizes, welcoming environment and amazing service! Definitely eat here if you want food done right! I have never had a better chicken biscuit in my life & the fried pickles are DELICIOUS. The menu is adorable and has lots of great options!

I've known this establishment has been here for years but only recently have I stopped by for a bite and I did not regret it. Since my first visit I have been back several times and have not been disappointed. I would dare to say this is the best breakfast in the area! This place also has tons of charm! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a delicious meal!

It was pretty good! They had a lot of people, so it took a minute for them to get my order. The food tasted pretty great.

Everything we have eaten from here ranges from really good to outstanding. The service is also great. Today, they forgot to put our grits with our to go order, and one of the ladies literally chased me down in the parking lot to make sure I didn't leave without them. The food is fresh and delicious, and the portions are plentiful. It's extremely affordable as well. Don't sleep on this place! It's worth multiple trips.

1st time experience this Tuesday morning... the food was exquisite and delicious there is not a thing I could possibly change. We have been wanting to try this little whole in the wall for nearly 4 years since we saw this place next to our landlords ? just up the street. If your ever in the neighborhood you gotta try this place and stop in for a quick bite to eat. Even though the place is very small inside they were completely packed inside moments after we stopped inside.

We hit Little Diner for breakfast on the weekends and love its small quaint interior. It gets busy, so get there early or be prepared to stand outside. Menu items are fairly priced for the decent portion sizes. Staff is always courteous and the food is always served hot and quick. Touchless payments are accepted.
