Don't let yourself be fooled by the looks, their food is good. I order the eggs benedict every time I come here, and if you ask for extra hollandaise they give you a cup full of it for only a buck extra, also their home fries are super yummy.... the servers are nice and the food comes out fairly quick....

I'm not sure if this place has a local history that makes it a special destination, but the food is not anything to write home about. Although passable, the menu is not creative and the quality is so-so. Small hole-in-the-wall joint which may not be appealing to some who seek new/clean appearance and the parking outside is a bit disjointed.... More

There is no ambiance here. But the food was really good. Two issues - service was terribly slow. I mean real slow. But what troubled me was seeing a server drop the cap from a catsup bottle on the floor while refilling and then just pick it up and put it back on the bottle. Yech!

I'd never even heard of Manassas, but did know I wanted a good breakfast. Found Tom's Diner, hit the spot, just what I needed. Egg's over, toast, home-fries and bacon, orange juice and coffee with top-ups. They even do eggs Benedict, all at a reasonable price. Thank you Tom and staff Harry UK

This little joint looks horrible from the outside (and truth be known the inside) but I don't judge a book by it's cover so we headed in. I ordered pancakes, potatoes and bacon and my partner ordered the steak breakfast. The pancakes and bacon were fair but the potatoes were doused with a seasoning....WAY too much. Overpowering!!! My boyfriend said... More

I've been here three times already and although the the appearance of the place and the furniture leave a lot to wish for, the food is pretty good! I always have the eggs Benedict with extra hollandaise sauce, home fries and a side of French toast. Believe me, you will take most of it home! The servers are nice for... More

I've known Bill the owner for many years. He runs one of the best places to get breakfast or a lunch at a reasonable price. Definitely not fast foo but everything made to order.

I think this place qualifies as a dive. I like dives because they can turn out great food at a great price and you have the fun of experiencing something that isn't cookie cutter perfect. Tom's serves breakfast up until 4:00 when they close for the day. Their breakfast menu is terrific with lots of opportunities for add-ons. The server... More
