Good southern comfort food, fun decor, good service. The food is great, think souther comfort food like scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, and the decor is done up like a retro diner. I especially like the arcade machines in the entrance, they're fun for a quick game.

I'm a regular (3+years) at 59 diner and last night was the first time I ever had a bad experience. First, they changed the menu too damn much!! Second, the food was disgusting. I love they fish and chips. Its usually fried fish and french fries but NOOO THESE MUTHAFUCKERS actually sliced potatoes thinking they could make chips bad idea. The fish was half cooked. They recooked it and the batter was thick and too chewy. My friends ciabatta burger was just nasty. The bun was stale and the cheese tasted like Kroger brand block cheese. The server fucked up the drink orders twice. They even changed the music and it sucks too.. I wanted to throw my grandmother' 50s party there but I don't think I'll be returning after this. The cook had a really bad attitude and temper. They just need a new cook and bring back the old menu. Never again...

I love this place. It's my friends' go to spot if we don't know what we want. They have a little bit of everything and Elvis is always eager to great us at the door. Now ... it is a diner, so chicken strips, breakfast and milk shakes are a must! But I haven't been disappointed when I adventure to the dinner side of the menu. I've loved all the staff so far over the past 22 months.

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.

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.

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.
