My husband and I eat breakfast here whenever we are in the Sheldon area. The portions are generous, and the servers are friendly and helpful. They serve freshly-brewed iced tea, which is refreshing. On our most recent visit, I had the veggie omelette. The veggies are just onions, bell peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms, but the omelette was huge and smothered... More

Service is just ok, but the food is pretty decent for the price. Good variety to choose from. They have deals like half price burgers on Mondays.

This was a great 50's era small dinner with a juke box. The food was excellent. We were there just past lunch time and it was quiet. Several locals were there. The food was lots for a good price. Very tasty menu.

The food is all comfort, location is easy access, the atmosphere is OK. Could probably use a good scrubbing in that the years are kind of showing of the wear and tear.

The food is really good for a very reasonable price. The decor is right out of the fifties. We'll be back.

We were excited to stop at such a cute diner while driving from South Lake Tahoe to the Delta. Such great potential. We should have known to leave after being seated for a while and no attention from a server. Flies too. We finally were asked for our orders and the food came. Large quantities but all dishes were lacking... More

This diner is a neighborhood favorite. The breakfast portions are huge and the food is yummy. I had eggs with bacon and toast. After eating all I could, I had enough leftovers for another meal. In previous visits, I have had their Mexican food which is wonderful. The staff is friendly and efficient and the decor is in the 50's... More

Visited on 08/06/16 – Berts Diner, 8972 Grant Line Road, Elk Grove, CA 95624 We stumbled across this little gem whilst on the way to Merced. It is a proper ‘old school’ diner with juke boxes on the booth tables. You get 2 plays for 25 cents...bargain; before depositing your money though, check that none of the alpha-numerical buttons are... More

I've been here several times now and cannot really complain. The service and food has always been good and the portions you get are large and satisfying. It's a diner and lives up to most expectations. My only criticism is in recent years the place looks run down and needs improvements to bring its past 'feel good' factor back.

Berts' hamburger are fresh, tasty and perfectly cooked. The lettuce was crispy and the tomatoes were juicy
