“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Don's is a great diner with down home atmosphere. The burgers and fries are to die for. Just be sure you are hungry...the portions are plentiful. Service is wonderful as well. The prices are affordable and definitely get what you pay for. Can't wait to return in July.

“GREAT PLACE TO EAT!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Great food, huge portions, affordable pricing and friendly staff. What more could you ask for !! This diner reminds me of the food/atmosphere of the diner I used to go to as a child. I would recommend it to everyone.

“As Far As Diners Go - Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

My wife and I took a day trip to Piatt Castles in West Liberty, Ohio, and we ventured on north a few miles to Bellefontaine. We found Don's Downtown Diner on Main Street and were very happy with our choice. As far as diners go, this was an excellent choice. It's a "no-frills" atmosphere but the service and food were very, very good. We had lunch around 1:00 P.M. and the local lunch crowd was clearing out, but you could tell that this was the place to go eat downtown. Burgers are the specialty at Don's and we both had the cheeseburger; I had the half-pound and my wife had the quarter pound. Kettle chips come with the sandwich. We were both pleased with our eating experience in Bellefountaine and would come back here again.

“Excellent Diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

Every time we stop in town we always make are way to Don's Diner. Staff is very friendly and food is great. The owner somehow remembers us everytime even though are visits are months apart. They had, by far, the best breakfast in town until they switched to just lunch and dinner. Lunch is still good and haven't tried dinner yet. Wish they would have kept breakfast :( Locals tend to complain about prices but if you want cheap food that taste cheap there are an over abundance of those places in Bellefontaine. Don's is great food and great service. I'll continue to pay for that.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2012 via mobile

Cute little diner. The menu had quite a few choices. My finance and I were both very pleased withour meals and will definatley go back. Much better than Bob Evans or Waffle House, which are your other choices in town for breakfasts.
