RAW CHICKEN IN KIDS MEAL I brought my daughter and her friend here over the weekend. My daughter's friend ordered the chicken tenders from the kids meal menu. When she bit into one, she told me that something was wrong. Upon inspection, I was totally disturbed to find that it was COMPLETELY RAW inside- not just pink, but UNCOOKED. We were not offered any kind of a refund or discount on our meal. Just a smile and a "whoops!" Also, There is no air conditioning, the juke boxes at the tables don't work, the fries are dry and mealy, and to top it all off, the food is not cheap. Drive by and take a photo from the outside if you must, but do not eat here!
Oh, yes. The Chicken Fried Steak is fantastic. The way it is suppose to be done. An actual Sirloin Steak pounded and breaded. The sad thing is I discovered from the owner that they are not going to carry that steak anymore cause people prefer the frozen stuff you can buy in bulk. Heathens! Have you never been to Texas? The only fault to this steak is it's size. It should be the size of the dinner plate, with enough gravy to float the steak. The diner itself is beautiful. Having been moved from Rhode Island, the rebuild took a while and is well done. The place is a well crafted step back in time. The owners are proud of it and will share a book that chronicles the whole thing. This place is a bit of a drive from my house, but with the quality of the food and the beauty of the diner my wife and I plan to make more trips out here. People! Please come and demand that they bring the Chicken Fried Steak back! It is worth it.
Meh at best. The food was completely sub-par. We went on Labor Day weekend and they may have been understaffed but it wasn't the initial wait that was the frustration. We had three different people wait on us. First, got the drinks. Second took the order. Third brought it out. Not one of them came back to check in once. We had to go to the counter for butter and syrup on an order of mostly pancakes. Needless to say, service is about 1 star. Location and atmosphere gets it 3-4 stars. Food was a solid 1-2 stars. The omelette was a mixture of grey and toasted brown. The worst appearance I could imagine for an omelette. It was so so in taste too. But the cost was $12 on a very limited menu. All of the 5 pancakes we had were crunchy and over cooked. The top half separated from the bottom half. $8 for 3. Not worth it. Even after 20 minute wait, food came out like warm. And that was after the brunch rush. I love Oakley and want to like this Diner but they have let me down too many times at this point. Maybe I'll forget this experience in a year but probably not.
