The West Reading Diner has a nice location perched up on a hill on busy Penn Ave just over the river from downtown Reading. This was our 2nd visit remembering how good it was years ago and it didn't disappoint. The food is very good,...More

Although the service was very good, the food left much to be desired. Burger was not made with quality meat, salad was very blah. I don't think I will return.

Good location on Penn Ave. Good but un-interesting food. Not much to say about this place. Good but average.

We don't get here often (enough) but this place has breakfast all day long and you really get a LOT of food for the money. The prices are very reasonable and the staff want to do whatever it takes to make you happy.

Stopped by for a late breakfast and it was good. Large menu but breakfast is simple. I had eggs Benedict with homemade hollendais sauce. Very good, friendly staff and lots of locals.

Went for breakfast after a night of partying. My eggs and cheese was very good. Really can't complain. Waitress was able to separate checks with ease. Some members of my party had minor errors in their order (chips vs fries ) they were very willing...More
