CLOSED due to owner/operator's death. 😔 Business for sale. Would be a great place/location for a diner that's open late as the movie theater and bars are nearby.

Sadly, the best breakfast place in Prineville has closed ... space is up for lease/sale. They had the best sourdough pancakes which the owner lovingly kept active over many years. A no-nonsense place that will be sorely missed.

It had good food. Large portions. Something is always on special. It closed a number of months ago due to the death of the owner.

I love to go to Dad's for its western Americana country atmosphere, and the slower style and amole portions are worth the wait. However, the fries were pretty greasy.

Dad's is a local breakfast/lunch hang out. Food not spectacular until you get some Pie. Then your taste buds light up and you only want more!
