Some sour-faced guy at the table next to us at lunch called his waiter over to gripe about why this diner would not deserve an “A” rating for any reviewing service. His complaint had something to do with the paint peeling in the bathroom. Not visiting the men’s restroom, I can’t speak to his criticism. I can speak to the... More

I've only seen a proper American Diner in the movies so was delighted to visit! Wish we had something so authentic in Scotland! Large, delicious portions and great service. Thank you very much!

Our tour guide from the Hoover Dam recommended this location and she was so right. I ordered a salmon salad special that came with some garlic toast and was delicious. I ordered it 'blackened' and with the ceaser dressing and received a large portion of great flavor for 10$. My daughter had the enchilada's and my husband enjoyed the fajita... More

I really love this place. I was here last year and couldn't wait to come back. Such nice staff and good prices. Can't find a better breakfast. Just a good home cooked meal.

Headed out to the Hoover Dam early and planned on stopping for breakfast along the way. Just stopped by with some help from the Trip Advisor rankings. Great selection, quirky restaurant with a huge menu and interesting selections. If I was a local would be eating here a lot to sample the variety they have. Can't remember a restaurant with... More

Stumbled upon this place on the way to Hoover Dam. Extensive menu. Needed breakfast and they delivered! French toast (6 hall pieces) with 5 pieces of bacon was delicious! Everything was hot and yummy! Wished I lived nearby to sample other items on the menu. Great coffee and service!

As usual, stopped "by accident" with no regrets. One can tell more about a business by the attitude of the employees. Food excellent, wait staff even better. On a tip I chose the fruit plate rather than the hash browns. Wonderful! A locals place, one cannot lose.

We checked into our favorite motel, the Sands at 809 Nevada Way, then walked to Southwest Diner. Food is delicious & Spicy Bloody Mary was quite tasty. Tomorrow is tourist day, going to explore the shops.

The atmosphere was quirky and was clearly a breakfast spot for locals. They never let my coffee get below a half cup and I left with a big smile and a full tummy. Gourmet? No. Innovative? No. Will I go back if I'm in the area? Absolutely!

We stumbled across this place on our way to Hoover Dam and what a gem! We had breakfast and everything was amazing! The portions are plentiful and if you're smart you'll share a meal. The staff was very friendly. Great small town diner!

Thank prsmith49
