This was a good lunch for our family of five. Two kids ordered breakfast, another had BLT and we had steak sandwich and fries, and cheeseburger and onion rings. Everything was delicious.

Great place to eat when in the area. I had a chili size and it was the best I've ever had. It was pretty crowded on a Saturday but we were able to get a table right away. Lots of free parking in the back. Good price and portion size. Service was also very good.

Just had a bad experience here. Asked for a plain hamburger and it came with the typical lettuce, tomato and onion but it also had a creamy sauce applied which was a big unwanted surprise. In addition, ordered the cucumber salad expecting cucumbers with vinegar. Received cucumbers totally immersed in a creamy sauce. Taught me I should have asked for... More

Hello Jeffrey, It is disappointing to hear that you now have a negative outlook on our establishment. It is shocking to hear such feedback, as normally we are a big hit with our customers! Our dishes are prepared with nothing but the best ingredients, which we feel justifies our prices. It is never our intention to have customers feel surprised... More

Called in to Southwest Diner as we were on route to the Hoover Dam The diner was full of old world charm. We had one of the breakfast options off the menu, that included "those potatoes" - absolutely lovely. The ice tea was served in a jar (appeared to be an old pickle jar). Food was great and service with... More

We found the Southwest Diner via Trip Advisor and the reviews were spot on. We were looking for a local place with local fare and this is a great spot. Noe this isn't a 5 star fine dining experience but from a diner perspective it is a great place. First breakfast is served all day! Perfect omelet prepared on a... More

My husband and I split a turkey Blt while our boys had burgers. After experiencing the other food prices in Vegas, the first thing we noticed was how reasonable the prices were. The food was quite good and the portions were generous. The service was attentive and we were out of there in a reasonable amount of time. The food... More

Stopped for breakfast on our way to the Hoover Dam. We ordered the Machacha scramble, and it was excellent. Came with the best homemade banana bread! Fast, friendly service. Coffee always full. Clean and cute little place to eat. Our only regret is that we didn't save room for pie!

We came here at night after travelling all day and the food was great! Simple classic diner food- great gravy and club sandwiches. Large drinks served in mason jars that hit the spot. They also had some great specials on the menu and it was all very reasonable. We also picked up some baked goods for the morning and they... More
