My boyfriend and I love coming here for breakfast/brunch! I've enjoyed pretty much everything I've had here and portions are quite large! I highly recommend the homemade raisin toast with cinnamon and sugar on it! Omelets are really great as well!

This diner has great prices and really good diner food. Third Alarm Diner also does take out which is great, especially in Sanford because there's not a lot of restaurants. Love the authentic diner food and prices!

Probably had a real following in the days when the textile mills were running. Now is an out of the way spot two blocks off Main St. Great view of Number 1 pond and the falls. New park just across the Street.

We eat at Third Alarm quite often for breakfast and always enjoy our meal. It is a smaller place, so you may wait (not long) and the parking is mostly across the street. The lunch and dinner is good as well.

Had the jalapeno cheese burger because after all it's the 3rd Alarm Dinner. Very good beef cooked correctly to order, covered in peppers so much so they oozed out onto my plate. Wife had the grilled chicken caesar salad, she was very happy with the...More
