“A Diner with Attitude”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Only ate here once and was tempted to leave before the food arrived. When we walked into the diner, everyone stared at us (we are "out of towners" living in Quakertown!) like we were aliens. The food (pancakes for me, omelet for my husband) was just average. We'll stick with John's Plain N Fancy where anyone is welcome.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

there is a cliche about the diners restaurants.... that they serve low quality food. I've been in many white cloth restaurants and franchise places... but always the best food is the homemade meal!!! and YES the Pennsburg Diner it is HOMEMADE FOOD A++++ and the service top notch!!!! don't be fooled by white clothes and fancy restaurants they charge you triple the price and average food. Yes definitely I was and I will visit this restaurant for many more years!!!

Great place for a quick diner meal. Service and food are great! Meals are served fresh and hot. Wait staff very friendly and gives that at home feeling.

“Good for reasonably priced diner food”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

We had 2 of their lunch specials here in May 2013. The food was good and very reasonably priced, the service was good, our waitress was quite knowledgeable about the area, and overall it was a pleasant dining experience. Yes, it's diner food, but it was prepared well, and this place is quite popular with the locals. Total lunch price was about $20 for 2 of us and we liked the diner atmosphere for a change of pace.

“A good local diner”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

I'm usually hesitant to try small local places, but the Pennsburg diner did not disappoint us. Diners are great when you want a wide variety of foods to choose from and they certainly had that. I had the smoked pork chop off of the Sunday special menu and it was REALLY good. There wasn't anything special about the soups or the salad bar. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive. Decor is about what you'd expect for a diner, but well maintained and very clean. If you're in the area and need a bite to eat it's worth a stop in. But I wouldn't make a special trip out there just for the meal.
