How is the diner pizza?

The pizza is amazing and fills you upm

Any gluten free options?

There are a few. They dont have bread substitutes but they do have gluten free food

how long has route 99 been in edmonton

95 sounds about right before it was a restaurant it was a gas station ... the old school kind with a couple of bays where the mechanics do repairs

A friend suggested this Dinner to me and said be ready possibly for a wait to be seated. My questions are... How busy is it at dinner time? Is there a day that dinner might not be a wait to get food? Thanks

Only time to be consider is breakfast / brunch time on weekends. Otherwise you're good to go!

What the number

(780) 432 - 0968

Do they do all day breakfast?

Yep all day long

Do they take reservations?

Not normally but call and I'm sure they will accommodate you!

Quiet, nice place, fast. Food is very subpar. I was expecting a lot higher quality of eggs and bacon. I was a little surprised at the lack of "breakfast diner" flare we're used to.

The waitress waited on everyone else expect us two who were obviously minority. She waited on the white people and didnt even bother to refill our drinks or offer us to go trays. So we just left. Not the best experience, the lady could have done better. #NoTip

I’ve come here quite a few times with my friends and my boyfriend. I always love coming in, they have such great food options for the price. Their hours are honestly amazing, I’ve come here a couple times for breakfast at 9pm. I’m never disappointed and look forward to coming back!

A landmark establishment that has some of the best service anywhere. The menu is loaded with diner classics, that are served hot, fast, and exceptional. Try the pancakes that are the size of a dinner plate, and don't skip the milkshakes. Be prepared for a wait, this place is very popular with the locals.

If you want good Diner food at good prices with good service and you want to sit in a 1950s style Diner in 2020, then this place is great! We have always had good meals here. The Diner shows its age so if you want squeaky clean then this is not the place for you. We love it and our kids love it!

Went for breakfast with my husband yesterday and thought this sinner is the cutest thing! The decor is fun and full of vintage memorabilia ! I even play music on the jukebox, that is such a fun piece to have! ( The music plays very soft, I guess not to disturb good conversation while enjoying the food ) the menu is very extensive and covers breakfast, lunch and dinner items! I definitely need to come back to try some of them! The greek omelette was absolutely delicious a must try!

The place was really run down physically. The outside wasn't to good to look at. I hope they renovate a bit in the future. Food was excellent but I did find the salad weak tasting but that's probably my. Own taste but was still good. Milk shakes are one of the top in the list of shakes. I recommend this place if you are in the area. Price is about average so that's a plus.

Very low key place that I go to for a well priced breakfast. The food has always been good and the place is usually very busy. Service is a little lacking, but the cost savings is worth it! Very cool place to check out.

It wasn't quite as exciting as one had hoped it to be. The lasagna was pretty good, decent portion for the price and had a nice helping of cheese. Garlic bread was on regular toast but tasted good. Do you find yourself bored or distracted easily... well this place could either be really good or really bad. A Lot of decorations on the walls that are from a time when the diner was the cool thing. Okay I'm bored of this review

Best breakfast place in Edmonton. 50s diner style restaurant which is family run. The waitresses work damn hard to make sure everything is perfect and that you are taken care of. Price is great for what you receive. Come hungry cause their portions are generous! Busy on weekends so come before 1030am. This place is quick and efficient. If there is a line up they will get you in and seated in a very timely manner. Love this place enjoy!

The servers are so rude. Literally my birthday and she comes to the table and says “ what do you want “ Doesn’t introduce herself, doesn’t say hello or anything else just straight up “ what do you want “ We asked a couple questions and she was so rude... I’m literally never coming back this place is ridiculous.

One of the most classic diners in Edmonton, a Southside legend. Cozy booth seating, the walls chock-full of nostalgia, homey service. This place just has a fun atmosphere, lots of U.S. influence, it is the perfect place in Edmonton to have breakfast before a long roadtrip. Located in the beautiful Mill Creek area, this is a wonderful neighborhood diner.

Great food, good service, good atmosphere, only trouble is some items aren't that fresh you can tell, and it's not always as clean as you would hope, otherwise it's a great traditional American diner.

Awesome Breakfast Eatery in Edmonton. Has that Old Fashion Diner Feeling with Starting with its Antique License Plates to its Plane Wing hanging from the Ceiling. It is Busy, but they have lots of Seating and an Outdoor Patio. Parking Lot can be Full but you can Park on the street as Well. Potions are Large, Extra Large (Do I Really need a Pancake to go along with my 2 Pieces of Toast?) All Around Great Place, Great Price, Great Atmosphere.

This is by far the best place I've eaten in town for breakfast. I'm a foodie and coming from Montreal it was hard to find places that would give your generous portions at reasonable prices. This place does it all, plus it's delicious. I definitely recommand, you won't be disappointed.

Service - Good, Food - Good, Prices - EVEN BETTER! This place is a classic diner establishment with breakfast, lunch and dinner options! The pancakes are unreal and the burgers are that delicious, greasy comfort food you just want to sink your teeth into!! The place definitely has that retro vibe with the album art hanging on the walls. Such a great place!

The amount of food you get for the price is very good. The food quality is average. The decor is dated, but some may find it nostalgic. Would choose to go here over Denny's.
