Diener’s Restaurant – Mechanicsburg

On Thursday September 22, 2011 we stopped by Diener’s Restaurant at 135 West Main Street in Mechanicsburg. Diener’s was one of our first stops back in early 2010 and we wanted to check them out again. We’re happy to report that our visit today was very good and we noted many improvements. They have added a nice, casual seating area just inside the entrance which adds a touch of coffee shop, but could also be a waiting area. The interior of the restaurant seemed more open and well lit. There were still some traces of the old Mechanicsburg pictures that used to cover the walls, but for the most part that has been replaced with nicer walls and more current artwork and decorations. We were quickly seated and our waitress was very good. We ordered our usual #1 which is eggs, hash browns, toast and sausage or bacon. Our guest reviewer, Kathy, ordered the special, which was a peach and blueberry pancake. The meals were very good. We especially have to mention the really good sausage links and the “big” toast, those two items really make the meal special. Overall we were pretty impressed with Diener’s, they seem to have evolved into a more modern, up to date restaurant while still maintaining some of the history and retro feel. We should note that Diener’s is open Wednesday thru Friday from 7 AM to 2 PM, and Saturday from 7 AM to 1 PM, and Sundays from 8 AM to 1 PM. If you’re on Facebook, look for their page. Also, we see that they are currently #49 in Urbanspoon’s “Best Restaurants in Harrisburg” list. Try them out, you’ll be glad!
