Good portions and pretty good food. Outside seating was nice but they should do something about the flies. The service was top notch. 4 people waited on me and I was constantly asked if I needed anything.

Southwest Diner is an excellent stop on the way (or back) from the Hoover Dam. They have a great variety of foods on their menu (all day breakfast; sandwiches, burgers; mexican food) for good prices. Their food is fresh and delicious and their service is friendly. I would highly recommend Southwest Diner!

Our family of five visited this diner on our way from Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam. Excellent selection of food, large portions and a fun atmosphere. Sadly, we were too full to try the desserts! But we hope to return someday to do just that.

We stopped here on out way back from the Hoover Dam to Las Vegas. The diner was fun - kitschy and interesting decor. The staff were pleasant and the food was GREAT.

The Southwest Diner came highly recommended and it lived up to the hype!! The food was excellent! We all had breakfast items and a slice of banana cream pie! I highly recommend the Mick sandwich. Great portion sizes and reasonably priced.

The waitresses were super nice, the food was delicious, and the pie was to die for!!! My boyfriend and I enjoyed the homemade banana nut bread, tripleberry pie, blueberry pie, and breakfast. The bacon was cooked to perfection, too!
