My wife and I had been wanting to try this diner for a while now. I had eggs, hash browns, toast, sausage (not just one or two, but three patties and an ice cold milk. Milk, warm milk, is another one of my pet pee peeves. I do not expect any diner to keep milk at the temperature I do... More

We loved King's Chef Dinner. Looking forward to going again. The food was so good and they give you more than enough. Be sure to bring cash as they do not take credit cards!

Pretty nice place for breakfast. There are two locations so make sure you find out which one is open as they are not open at the same time. The place is nice but is a little too loud especially when busy. The atmosphere is also a little tight inside as there are a lot of tables crammed into a tiny... More

Really good diner. Lived in, atmospheric, funky, very American, varied menu, really helpful staff. Can't praise it highly enough. A great example of a classic American eatery

The servings are so large that they offer 1/2 servings which are also huge. Go hungry and bring cash because they don't take credit cards.

We stopped in for lunch after shopping at Independent Records next door. We were a bit stunned by the high prices. My Ruben sandwich cost $11 and only came with a pickle but it was big and delicious. Wife's hamburger was the same, big and tasty. Our lunch cost nearly $30 for a Ruben, a burger and 2 waters with... More

Every time we're in town we make sure to have breakfast at the King's Chef Diner at least once. Cash is the only accepted payment so be prepared. At 30 years old I still like getting a sticker for cleaning my plate like a kid :) Check them out!

Bring cash...cash....cash or you wont eat. The food was excellent, the breakfast burrito is the size of a log. The biscuits and gravy was actually homemade and very good. A little pricey but you get a ton of food. Once of the breakfast places we have been to.

King Chef is our favorite breakfast joint! There is no way you will leave there hungry. I would recommend "The Thing"- texas toast topped with hash browns, your choice of meat, eggs and their green chili. Very important- first timers- get the green chili on the side! It is hot. My husband loves "The Grump", which is similar to the... More
