This diner is expensive but good food only catch is you must eat early as in before 1:00 as it closes early. Serves meals and plates from cafeteria bar or from kitchen. Desserts are decent, home made style.

We've ate at Lindas at least 7 times. The quality of food and service are consistently good. Prices are reasonable and access is easy, right off 68 hwy.

A good choice for lunch. A meat and three type cafeteria style with 2 meats, 6 vegetables and a few breads or order from the menu. Nothing fancy but a good clean restaurant that is a family operation. Homemade desserts.

I tried the chicken pot pie and green beans, both were very bland. I had a slice of the coconut pie which was very sweet but good. Friendly service, very much a local favorite.

A small cafeteria style meat and three. Mainly a local crowd but an easy stop on highway 68 in Madisonville. Good quality if not remarkable. I'd certainly stop again for lunch.
