Service was horrible. I will not be going back. The server we had, had alcohol on his breath. We paid with a debit card, didn't have much money in our pocket. (I don't keep money on me like that) But I still managed to give him $3.50 Because I am not and will not leave a tip on my card for people to screw me over like I've known of one of my friends got done. So that's MY right if I don't want to leave a tip on my card. He chased us outside running his mouth saying that our bill has a percentage of what to give him. Um, his percentage was only $4.50 of $30, Excuse me for being a dollar off. He ran his mouth about feeding his family. I totally understand that waitresses and waiters need their tips. I gave this man all the money in my pocket and it still wasn't good enough. He spilled drink on my husbands lap. Rude service. Can't believe I got followed out to my car. I will make sure my friends and family do not go here either. Honestly if he was so worried about taking care of his family, go to college and get a degree!!

In regard to the review on February 14, 2015, I would like for you to contact me to discuss your experience. The employee has been terminated and of course his actions are not acceptable. Unfortunately, by the time I was aware of the problem, some damage had been done. I hope you will contact me so I can make this up to you. Owner Twin City Diner

I worked there right out of high school. It's been 10 years since then and I still love to eat there. The B.B.C.B burger is amazing. Twin City Diner definitely has the best wings in town. It's a great place to eat. Good selection of draft beers.

How far the mighy have fallen. This used to be a favorite place. When we entered I should have paid heed to the 90 they scored for food safety. The cheese on my sald was stale and my daughters drink had a floater. Food was over cooked and chicken dried out. So sad to see a good restaurant struggle with the basics.

This used to be my favorite restaurant until I heard the owner curse out a homeless man( that he normally gave food to). The service has been horrible. The manager doesn't like to greet anyone except customers that he knows. He is losing business. The taste of the food has gone down over the past few years. The food is not worth the price.

In response to a review received February 21, 2015, I would like for you to contact me so we can discuss your experience. I have been in the restaurant business for 27 years. I follow the same policy regarding homeless or down on their luck people as my father did, who had been in the restaurant business for 40 years. We help when we can and treat them with respect, however the safety of our customers always comes first. Over the years I do have many regular customers that have become Twin City Diner friends. I do always try to speak to everyone and make sure all of the customers are treated with good service. I am disappointed to hear this was not your experience and again, I would be happy to discuss this with you and see if I can make it up to you. Owner Twin City Diner

TCD is AMAHZING. They have seriously the best wings around...perhaps anywhere. Their drive-in is a classic and you really just cant go wrong. The service is the best hands down. If you get the taller gray haired gentleman you have won the lottery he is the best.

Whenever my office orders lunch out, they always request Twin City Diner....They love the TCD salads but I'm more of a Twin City Club Sandwich fan. Never had a bad meal from these guys...
