I ate at the Colonial diner a few times when I was in high school, not that long ago. It was an okay diner with okay food. But at my last visit, there was a pubic hair on my dish. So no thank you, I m never returning here. That is utterly disgusting. Eat here at your own risk.
Nothing but dirty mexicans and south americans with unwashed hands preparing your food add the fact that half of the servers are drug addicts or alcholics and you have the perfect recipe to get the runs right after you leave there.Eat there at your own risk !
I generally do not think of myself as a picky eater but this has to be some of the worse food I have been served. I ordered eggplant parm with pasta. The pasta was beyond overcooked and tasted like it had been sitting in water for hours. The sauce was an orangy color and the eggplant was so greasy and slimy. The salad was rubbery and wilting. Thank you for my salad dressing on the side but I did not mean all over the side of the plate. The waitresses were all milling about very close to our table with their loud conversation. Service definitely left something to be desired! I will never eat there again.
Change your grease!
Clean your kitchen!
Unfortunately, it is kind of a Dr. Jeckyl & Mr. Hyde.
Have had some really good food & service at breakfast, lunch & dinner, but visiting late night can be quite unpleasant. The place can be empty, and yet you wind up waiting 10 or 15 minutes for a waitress to approach you. On my last visit, I walked out because the waitresses were too busy talking at the counter to be bothered.
It amazes me that you can get a great sandwich at lunch, but the same sandwich served late night is mediocre at best.
Couldn't rate it higher, since they allow this to go on.
My suggestion would be, just stay away after 11 pm.
Great--Open 24 hours, great location. Really good (and packed) on a Sunday morning. Happy place to eat. Waitresses go out of their way to serve you and work like dogs. Sandwiches couldn't get any better. Love it and wish I had one here in the South, but no luck.
The Colonial Diner is the kind of place you want to have nearby--great for after church lunch. They have consistently good food, atmosphere and service at reasonable prices. I wish there was no smoking allowed, but at least there is a no smoking section. It's casual enough to go in your jeans, but formal enough for special occasions.
We went on a Saturday evening around 8 P.M. While we missed the usual dinner rush, it was still a steady flow of patrons. The food was good, cooked to order and served in a timely manner. It was decorated nicely for Christmas. The wait staff were kind and professional. Would eat there again with out reservation.
