Nice place to meet friends for a home cooked meal any time of the day. Consistent quality and good service. Breakfast prices are a little high. I cannot comment on lunch and dinner as I have only had breakfast here. Everything was cooked to order and presented well. Nice and quiet place to visit over a meal.

Ended up trying this place out on a busy Sunday morning during BSU parents weekend. It was understandable that restaurants were busy this morning. We waited 10 min or so to be seated arounf noon. Service was very slow, we were a party of 5. 4 of us ordered basic breakfast and 1 person ordered a sandwich. It took over... More

When we first moved to Muncie, Indiana we discovered Bruners. We loved their service and food especially for breakfast. We were very young back then and often people made fun of us because they said, "Bruners is for old folks." Now we are closer to Old Folks than Young Folks and we still love Bruners as do our kids and... More

Home made chips and BLT on wheat, can not be beat! Don't miss out on their home made butterscotch and chocolate pie or apple dumpling. Friendly service and plenty of parking.

A piece of Americana frozen in time. There is nothing pretentious here and the food is done well. Our waitress was really a hoot and more attentive than what you would find in many fancier digs. This is the over 60 hangout, so at my mid 50s I felt like the kid in the place. Sometimes you are looking for... More

This is owned by a local family for 30 years this July. It has dishes you think of making at home and now you don't have to. Beth, one of the daughters, makes delicious cream pies, at times. She makes coconut cream, Banana cream, chocolate, Butterscotch and lemon meringue and delicious cakes. I think you would enjoy the friendly atmosphere... More

I went to Bruner’s Family Restaurant today and am happy to say I had a rather pleasant experience. This is the second time I have ever been there, the first time being in autumn of 2015. The service was prompt, friendly, and efficient. They checked back on me multiple times (but not TOO often) and made sure I was satisfied... More

Bruner's Family Restaurant located at 2200 W Kilgore Ave, Muncie, IN 47304, is a great place to catch a great breakfast! I have eaten breakfast at Bruner's on several dozen occasions for breakfast and have eaten here for lunch on several occasions. Bruner's is a great example of a Midwestern American Diner and has been a Muncie staple for over... More

I've heard about Bruner's for years, and the connection with Red Skelton. I was expecting something wonderful, but instead, I found the food to be more like cafeteria food and saw no memorabilia of Mr Skelton.

Been many times, best made from scratch biscuits & gravy on the planet, great burgers and blue plate specials.
