This is the go to restaurant whenever I am in Seneca. My absolute favorite is the Chili Cheeseburger with mustard, onions, chili and fries. Service is always excellent even when the place is packed.

A friend from work and I had lunch. Hamburger steak with gravy and onions, salad, and fries. It was deliscious! Our waitresses were fast and efficient and the cost was less than most of the "fast food" places I've been.

Those that "grew up" with The Time love it. I didn't and I don't. My chili cheeseburger was edible. The meat was just a processed thin patty. The chili might've been decent but the cheap patty ruined the burger. Hubby got an open faced beef...More

Can't believe Katherine C found this otherwise pedestrian dated, could be a great diner-like experience...enjoyable. I did love the enthusiastic greeting from the numerous chefs (behind counter) when you arrive, and the restaurant is spotless. We were so hopeful, thinking breakfast served your way all...More

Time Drive-In is a diner from another, simpler era. But the food is great! Just know going in that... it's a diner. It isn't a farm to table restaurant. It's not a fancy, white linen Michelin starred restaurant. It's a diner. Not gonna find locally...More

Our first visit and our last. They are polite and efficient but everything is very ordinary and a bit drab. Others I'm sure will enjoy but we like places with a bit more atmosphere.
