If I could give this place 0 stars I would, I have eaten here since i was a child, I have even brought my kids here, But I have to say last night is the last dime they will see out of me! In the last year and a half EVERYTHING has seriously gone down. They either fired or ran off all of the servers who knew what the hell they were doing and replaced them with servers with the personality of glue. They will literally walk past your food sitting under the heat lamps and go somewhere and probably check their Facebook. when they remember that they actually have customers, they'll bring you food that you've been looking at for 10 minutes. How I wish I had a time machine, I would go back to 2 years ago when 59 Diner was still good!

I used to come here for many years. As a Houstonian I can tell you that this place is nothing that it used to be. For well over 20 years you would see a line out the door at different times almost daily. It used to be a Houston institution, now the place is frequently near empty. The food taste like a downgrade from Denny's, but more expensive, the service is good, and the building is nice, but that's the only thing good about the place. I had heard from a real estate friend that a middle eastern company or family bought the place about 5 years back from a local Houstonian that had died. Unfortunately this has been a trend in Houston for many years. Middle eastern and Asian investors buy up traditional establishments trying to capitalize on their history (also largely for their own egos) but cut back in every possible way in order to maximize profits, even if it means turning a place into a low grade McD's. Sad world we now live in. Anyway, go down the street to the Denny's or IHOP, the food is much better, believe me.

This review is for the location in The Woodlands (recently opened). EVERYTHING about this place sucks - the decor, service and especially the food. Total miss. What are these people thinking???

Lot of varieties. Big portion size. Great serving staff. Nominal pricing.

The only thing I liked was the pleasant waitress. This place isn't what it used to be. For starters, my coffee cup had lipstick on it. Then the coffee tasted like they had emptied an ashtray in it. The egg of my omelet looked they had hung it out to dry and the taste matched the looks. The hash browns we too brown, i.e., they not only looked like they had freezer burn, they tasted like it too. My mom and daughters pancakes, a knife couldn't easily cut them. They were like rubber. I didn't let my mother eat them. I'm so sad because I used to like going there.

Busy place with good food and excellent service. I ordered the Gaucho breakfast modified with hashbrowns instead of fries. Food was in my mouth 15 minutes after I showed up middle of lunch hour rush. Tasted fine, normal size serving, not Texas size though. I had a little gal named Karen for a server. She was on point with everything and I was never in need. I noticed how fast she walked table to table and she was busy. An elderly Asian couple next to me had another attentive waitress who was very sweet and patient with helping them with the menu choices, and I noticed she was covering a busy section also. The place was very clean and I suspect that the whole business is a well oiled machine from the top down.

Food wasn't all that great . My rosemary chicken was super dry I drenched it in hit sauce the broccoli cheddar casserole seemed like it was the bottom of the barrel leftovers,horrible. The mash potatoes were ok I liked them . Our waitress wasnt the best, was rushed in ordering and paying, not to friendly either.
