Norma's is the best place to eat breakfast! Anything you want on a breakfast menu is at Norma's. They cater to children, so this is a great place to take the family. They have homemade cream pies, fruit pies and dessert cage right as you come in. These pies can be bought by the piece or a whole pie to... More

Now know as The Diner of Dallas in Farmers Branch, this is still the go to place for wonderful food. Service is fast, of the "Hi Honey" variety. If you are looking for for real, authentic, or call it what you will, this is the place!

I love the way the wait staff work together and cover all the customers so everyone is constantly having their coffee and water refilled without having to wait for their particular server to be free.

One of the oldest restaurants in Dallas. Best biscuits ever. Good gravy to accent the biscuits & sauage. Good lunches & suppers too.

It's worth noting that THIS Norma's has been renamed "The Diner of Dallas" and has been that way for at least a year and a half. The reason, as I understand it from them is that they broke off from the "Norma's" franchise which is probably a good thing because the other Norma's are not that good anymore. The decor... More

You need to be hungry to eat here and don't ever tell your doctor. Everything is down home style and will most definitely fill you up, but you'll need a nap after. Very much styled as a family style restaurant, the atmosphere is no frills but very value oriented and comfortable. Great value in southern cooking.

The only thing better then the prices and food? THE SERVICE! We always ask for either Chasity or Chelsea (twins). They're just THE BEST! Thank you.

The biscuit was more like a loaf of bread. Good place. Big pancakes too. Busy but they will get you taken care of.

It's got that sort of old time diner feel that we all love. The food is great, it's a decent value. We've been several times, however, the service on this last visit was slightly sub par. We will still return.

Dependable, 50's style diner food. There's a reason this place has been around forever.
