Been to Mike's several times. Waitresses are friendly. Breakfast is good but I do not recommend dinner, or at least the few dinners I have had. My daughter ordered ribs once, and saw the chef put the ribs in the microwave, same thing when I ordered the Chile Colorado, and rice and beans looked microwaved too. Last time I went there (Sunday) I got a stomach ache that lasted into the next day. Sorry to say, I won't go there again for dinner.

Unfortunately, another one of my top 5 worst dining experiences was here at Mike's Diner. I was staying in town for a project and hunger struck after the closing time of most other restaurants. I love diners and I had read the glowing reviews so I was excited about going to open 24/7 Mike's.

The menu had so many choices I found it difficult to decide, but I chose the pork chops and apples (oops! big mistake!) I knew I was in trouble when my waitress (an Asian lady who appeared to want to be anywhere but there) brought the bread - stale white bread with no flavor. Then the 'salad' arrived... another disappointment.

After quite a while --- a long while --- the pork chops arrived. They were old and extremely tough - and honestly had the texture of an old shoe. (wait a minute how would I know what it would feel like to eat an old shoe? was I a dog in a previous life?) Anyway... it was horrible to say the least. I think they must have been in their freezer since the beginning of the new millennium because I don't think many have ordered them. That also explains why it took nearly an hour for them to arrive.

I wish I had not tried to take a chance and ordered a simple burger or one of the burritos that others have raved about - but somehow I thought that pork chops and apples would be a safe, diner, "blue plate special" kind of choice.

Oops, I was wrong.

This place has very tasty food and quick service. They are friendly people too. Although its not to clean and pretty looking, it's still a good deal for a quick meal!

The breakfast and Mexican food from Mike's is pretty good. It is a truck stop so it's not the cleanest place around, but you should know that before going there. The service is usually quick and the food is tasty!

We went there for breakfast and while it is a truck stop diner, the food was quite varied. It is a smaller restaurant, so expect a wait. The food was really good, and greasy. My kids loved the fact that some Sheriff deputies sat down next to us for breakfast. Everyone was nice, but the table could have used a good scrub.

Mike's Diner is a classic American diner. Located in what use to be a big truck stop, Mike's offers a nice place to stop and have lunch before the long drive over the grapevine. Food is good. Prices are low for the amount of food. The feel of the place takes you back to before the fast food explosion. Well worth the stop.
