I think they have put to many items on the menu, that it take a lot more to get the product out. They should go back to basics and serve "Diner" food. Why do they have breakfast Burritos and so many other items. KISS, "Keep it Simple Stupid" was what I was always taught, or you end up ordering to much or to little, which takes away from the freshness of the product, or lack of a popular item.

And don't forget to check with who is serving you if your fundraiser card is good or not. I tried to use one that has Lisa's dinner on there and was told the House Special is not included for the 10% off. Don't know why it is on the menu. Won't be going back there again.

I was disappointed as well when I went to the Diner last week. I thought I would give it a try again under new ownership and was very disappointed. Kids running all over not to be mean but the overweight sweaty kid cooking my food was just not right wiping his sweat from his head with HIS HAND! No hair net yuck, impossible to enjoy the meal. They were out of a few things so I could not get what I wanted anyway. Just too many things that I saw that made me feel uneasy definitly will not be going back again:( Not a friendly enviroment hate to say it but I enjoyed it a whole lot better when Mike owned it......

We have been using that term (KISS) since before I went to culinary school(over 20 years ago). Another problem with having a bloated menu is keeping inventory, our saying was "running out is not an option", if we were running low on something, we would go to the closest grocery store if our supplier was unwilling to deliver. Its not proper to use food from a grocery store in a restaurant setting, but we never ran out of an item. When you have too many items, you have to use the WAG method of inventory and purchasing. WAG = wild ass guess.

Why all this negative attitutde about the Diner? If you don't like the place, quit going there, plain and simple. But on the other hand, maybe your comments will improve the place. Take the owner to one side and explain your problems with the place. Any sensable owner will take your comments and make corrections.On the other hand, it sort of appears that you want the place to fail. If they are as bad as some posters make it. Your comments are not needed as they will put themselves out of business. Some comments are opening the door to a liable suit. That's something you don't want. Should someone file a suit, under the right of discovery, the administrator of this board would be forced to devulge your true name. If ordered by a court. I'm only tipping you off to the problems that could be forth coming.

I agree their service really sucks.... They have crappy trashy waitresses and crappy sloppy cooks.. So sad that they stooped so low on what they're hiring in that place!! I'd rather eat at Keystone much better wait staff and cooks= less trash!!!

I have been in this diner Recently! I will say Lisa, Girlfriend & I only enjoyed the coffee. Ya's Service was not that great, the menu that was revised is way to long. Mexican & Etc should only be a special not an everyday item. Prices are too high, and the wait staff reminded me of the Bitterson's. Smile a little, Diplomacy goes a long way. You should develop a formal training procedure for new hires, and refresher courses for existing staff. The key points to instill in your staff are service and attentiveness. As a manager you need to make sure your staff takes customer service seriously. You can show your commitment, by demonstrating good customer service, preaching customer service, and providing training in customer service. After all, without the customer there would be no business!! I wish you luck and I hope you succeed.

Yea well you want a cookie? You're one of the few that does... Don't we all love eating at resturants with child molestors!! Their only doing this to help pay for the owner that liked to rape little boys in the @Ss! So enjoy your meal because your money is paying for that fools commisary!! Don't get a boner over it now you sick freak..

Yes, I do want a cookie...my name is hungry. You don't have very good reading skills do you? I haven't seen any child molesters there. Well, unless I've seen you there. Sounds like I haven't seen you there though. You're molesting the readers with your filthy mouth right now. If you don't like molesters, don't be one ;)

This Lisa's Diner is not making it. Give it 1 year and I guarantee this establishment will fold. It takes a year or longer just to make a profit. From what I see the place is never packed, except for the very few who patronize it. Surrounding all the bad karma that has come along with this diner, I surely hope you do make it. From my perspective, I do not give it long! Patronizing the Diner, means Patronizing Pedophiles. Obviously your not taking Tips From Gordon Ramsey!! Good Luck
