Waitress was very friendly, restaurant was clean and not busy. My fries were under cooked, the slaw was in a very miniature dressing cup, one bit and it was gone. The chicken tenders were not great at all. If I return I will get something...More

Famous Anthony's is a typical American diner. Great choice of breakfast foods. The day we were there it was very busy and they were short staffed but our waitress, Lisa, attended to our needs. Our food came very fast and it was very tasty.
