Review of Brandon's Diner

Brandon's Diner
Ranked #21 of 252 Restaurants in Moreno Valley
Price range: US$10 - US$15
Cuisines: American
Description: This full-service, breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant, owned & operated by the Benitez family has served travelers to Moreno Valley, and locals, for over 15 years. Their phone number is 951-485-1240 but there is no internet site for them. They serve beer and offer take out. They have the best pancakes in the whole city of Moreno Valley, even superior to the IHOP in town. They share the property with a Holiday Inn Express and are close to other motels and near freeway interchanges. They deserve to be listed on TripAdvisor as a suitable eatery for locals and visitors alike. Thanks. MonkeyOnTheWing (Michael McCoy)

I have been coming here for years. I have been here for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even taco Tuesday. The food it good, typical diner food. However, staff does need some training. Just because you say "hello", when a customer walks in the door, is not customer service. Depending on staff and time of day, but more often than not, you have to ask for refills. Almost like that old Ron Popiel commericial, "set it and forget it".

I am retired and one of my favorite pastimes is to go out to lunch every day. I have been to the Rancho Cucamonga and Fontana Brandons a few times but recently moved to the Moreno Valley area so was eager to try this Brandons. I can honestly say that I haven't eaten worse food in recent memory. I ordered the chili and chees omelet with fresh fruit and biscuits and gravy (which was the original owners claim to fame before it was sold to Armando).
The eggs were so over-cooked that it was almost inedible. It was covered in a 'chili' whose beans were so over-cooked that they were nothing but mush. The chili sauce (I was told) had ground beef in it but you wouldn't be able to identify it as meat. It simply gave the sauce a granular mouthfeel.
The biscuits had an unpleasant flour taste with a mealy texture. The gravy was just passable. The best part of the meal, by far, was the fresh fruit.
Oh, the service was very nice. I had Stephanie. Thanks Stephanie for being the highpoint of the morning.
I will never go again!

My family and I were very pleased with our meals and the timeliness with which it was prepared and presented. From the chicken fingers, to the French fries, omelets and nachos, everything was super tasty. The service was really good too. We were there during lunch time.
