I enjoyed the steak and cheese sandwich and onion rings. The place was packed and it took a while for the food to come out. Nothing spectacular--just decent food. I will be back.

First time visiting Linda's after going by the restaurant for years. We really enjoyed our breakfast, food tasted nice and came to the table quickly, and we had a great waitress. Small, but seemed very cozy and friendly. There was parking in the back too.

The best Greasy Spoon Breakfast in 100 miles. Been eating here since 2000. Great homestyle breakfast. Friendly staff and the breakfast you grew up with. The place is old. The food is traditional. Delicious experience.
