We dug back into our archives for some Family Diner love. Food critic Shelly VanCleve visited in 2012:
"Roll me over and call me stuffed! This joint is a force to be reckoned with and the list is long and the food is filling. This is one of those rare finds in the restaurant industry and totally diet-breaking worthy. I don’t know where to start, so I will begin with the end.
"Go for the cream-cheese stuffed French toast topped with strawberries and dusted with powdered sugar. I believe this is a ‘two-fer’ breakfast and dessert all rolled into one."
Readers chimed in, too. Jana Nelson praised the steak and cheese sub, before exclaiming, "Monk and Debra (Adcock) are the best and make you feel right at home when you are there!"
Jim Clore noted, "Family Diner is where friends and family meet."
