What can I say, it's homecooked food at reasonable prices. They have a great hashbrown casserole....it's good. I got mine with eggs and bacon. Just like mama made. Great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Portions are big. It's a throw back to the 60's...More

Chef's Diner came recommended by friends who had lived in the area for a great classic diner breakfast. And that is exactly what you get. Inexpensive excellent diner breakfast with friendly servers

A quick stop for breakfast and it was OK, nothing to write home about and the service was lackluster and rather slow. I had to ask for a refill on my coffee.

It is a local restaurant that seems to be popular from the amount of locals in there. The food was excellent with a lot of variety. Great place for families with children. Prices were very reasonable.

We went NASCAR weekend so it was very busy but they did not miss a beat! Staff was nice, service was fast and the food was great!

...or at least I hope so. This place has been several incarnations of a sub-par diner. Been there several times over the past dozen years. If my choice is Chefs or no breakfast I go hungry.

This is a little restaurant that could use a "make over" but the food was fabulous. We went there two days in a row. If you like hashbrowns you must try these. You can always tell a good restaurant when you have to wait to...More
