All-in-all, Ben's Diner is great if your looking for good inexpensive family dining. Their open-faced hot roast beef sandwich is excellent and their mashed potatoes are made from potatoes peeled at the restaurant. ..not instant. Most times the restaurant is full but no matter how busy they are, I have found their service to be exceptional and from the time... More

This diner is inside a strip center and there is plenty of seating. The prices are low and the food is homemade. The service was pretty quick and it's popular with the locals as it seemed like everyone knew everyone. It was nice, clean but nothing to brag about.

This ain't no fancy eatin. Not by a home stretch. You want yourself something fancy, you go to one of them fancy joints up in Winchester. I had the roast beef and it ate up real nice.

The lunch was excellent and the prices very reasonable. Doesn't look like much from the outside and the decor reminds me of the old soda shops, but it was clean and very homey.

My wife and I stopped for breakfast as I knew the pancakes were pretty good. I added the home fries to the order and they are just so-so at best. Wife had a biscuit with chipped beef gravy and she said it was OK - not as good as from the now closed Hi Neighbor Restaurant in Strasburg. Service was... More

Good old fashioned normal food for a good price. Try just grilled cheese or a burger. The hot roast beef and mashed potatoes is a hit with our family. They always have a hot special and there as a lot of hot veggi choices. The vegetable soup is good year round. Order it as one of your sides!

Four of us stopped at Ben's for lunch on a busy Saturday. There's plenty of seating and a big menu of standard diner fare. We had: tuna salad sandwich, wings, grilled cheese and a burger with fries and onion rings. Everyone at Ben's was friendly and the service was prompt. All the food was very good except the fries, which... More

This seems to be the local gathering place. Lots of friendly people. I saw quite a few hugs and handshakes! Plenty of staff. Very efficient operation. It reminded me a lot of the old High's or Hot Shoppes.
