Riverfront Times's Description
The Courtesy Diner, like the Dude, abides. Whether you want a hearty breakfast to soak up last night's drinks, a late-night slinger to forestall the morning hangover, the best fast-food hamburger in town or a fix of cheap coffee and jukebox blues to stir your brooding soul, you'll find it here - just like you would have found it twenty, thirty, even forty years ago. Best of all, the Courtesy Diner is not an attic for Americana, and it isn't some kind of shrine to the working class; it's a working restaurant (and be prepared to pay with cash).
Tips from foursquare
Dr. Dan is the best pancake artist in the world.
Dan will make pancakes with designs on em.
Cheesy hash browns. Obviously.
Hell with any negative reviews. One of the best places around any time of day. Credit to the staff for cooking and serving. A+
The cook dude can make the pancakes in the shape of pacman and the ghost!
