Although it is only open for breakfast and lunch this is a great place to get home cooking. The Andy burger is so good and they have a wonderful breakfast with real home fries (not frozen).

Recently stopped for lunch and received the same great serve we have received whether it be for breakfast or lunch from Lisa and her crew. Ordered the Belt Buster Burger and fries. The Belt Buster is 2 enormous burgers loaded with bacon and cheese. French fries are delicious as they are homemade. Can't go wrong ordering anything on the menu/

Great family meal. Homemade tenderloins, juicy burgers, and friendly service. 2 adults 2 kids, a couple special requests and the staff was happy to accommodate. A true family operation, not a corporate restraunt. Home made and good food. Small place with a friendly atmosphere. The dad does the cooking, the wife Lisa is the head waitress. My family is looking... More

OK. This is the place to stop and grab breakfast when you've got time for a hometown homegrown breakfast. I am absolutely in love with the homemade corn beef hash. Yum! If you're in the market for lunch the tenderloins are outstanding. This is an awesome little place for a couple to grab a quick bite before going out for... More

Recently my wife and I were in Pekin and decide to try Andy's. The first thing I noticed was the building looked... More

It had been years since I have eaten at Andy's Diner. I use to get fried chicken that was good. But this was my first time eating breakfast. I had one of the specials; 2 eggs, meat, potato, and toast. It was affordable and the portions are generous. I didn't eat it all and usually I do. I am a... More

Breakfast is amazing. I had the "Mess" and I think I'm addicted to it now. Prices are reasonable and you get plenty of food. Pleasant and very friendly staff. Quick service and always kept my husband's coffee cup full. Would recommend Andy's to everyone.
