Is the Algood Diner on Willow Ave in Cookeville a good place to eat? Is the buffet all you can eat?

The real Algood Diner is in Algood on Main St. That's the best one. The owners and employees at the one in Algood are super nice and the food is really good too.

Jack, are you saying that YOU were the original owner of the Algood Diner that opened in Algood, in 1997? Don't think so hot shot. Next time you want to list your "business" for sale with an agent, and include interior pictures..... at least wipe the shit load of grease off the equipment before you snap a photo. GROSS!

You are correct Jack didn't start the Algood Diner, Bob and Sandy Randolph did years ago. And Jack was the one that didn't want to renew his lease and left. He went over to Willow and named it The Algood Diner. The Algood (City) Diner in Algood has much better food and is a much nicer atmosphere to dine in because you don't have to listen to Jack's shit while you are dining, And while he will tell you everything is homemade, well it's not.

Well I have to disagree as I am a regular customer of the real Algood Diner in Algood owned by the Randolphs. If you believe everything that Jack tells you then you are not too bright.

The Original Algood Diner is on Willow, after having moved from the location in Algood a couple years ago. The new Algood City Diner in the old Algood Diner Location. Both serve good food for a fair price.

Bob and Sandy Randolph started the Algood Diner in 1997, they have owned the building on Main St in Algood for all these years. They leased the restaurant to Jack for 5 years, after those 5 years Jack decided not to renew his lease and moved to the location on Willow and called it the Algood Diner. BOB AND SANDY ARE THE ORIGINAL ALGOOD DINER. By the way Sandy cooks up some great homemade food(NO THEY DO NOT JUST OPEN A CAN) & the place is so much cleaner and nicer now that Jack is gone.

What is most amazing in this topix topic is how some people can write a lie just as easy as writing the truth. Imagine this discussion in your grandparents days. Where are we going....

Well, I had chicken and dumplings there that were awful. Must have been out of a can. It's a dump.
