A Diner to Beat all Diners
Great food, great service, and seemed to be always packed. It was winter, where most of the tourists are folks like us - wanting to get away from crowds. Southwest Diner was busy busy busy. When a local place is busy during an off season...More ... read more

Great Food in Historic Boulder City
No lack of choices here! Large menu, plus specials and daily baked goodies up on the chalkboard. Prompt and attentive (but not intrusive) servers. All of your typical diner fare here, plus Mexican specialties, too. I had Potato Pancakes with green chiles, these were about...More ... read more

First time here and we had a great experience. Service and food were great. I love the variety they offer I n the menu as we all could get what we want which is great when you have a group. We had Mexican, burgers, sandwiches, and even breakfast. The curly fries were delicious. Next time we will come for dessert first because we were ... read more

My husband and I had a little breakfast at this hidden gem. It is definitely a joint. I had the breakfast burrito and my husband ordered Bacon and eggs, hash browns with thick bacon and thick wheat country toast. Wow. It was amazing. Large servings too. I didn't finish my burrito because it was so large, but my husband finished his b ... read more

Breakfast Meeting
Quaint restaurant. Pulled together tables to fit 20. The breakfast is good. Wait staff was very friendly and made sure everything was good. There was nice patio seating too, however the weather was too cool.

Went for brunch yesterday. My spouse and I both had the chili relleno casserole, that comes smothered in red sauce, and accompanied by grilled potatoes and banana bread. All was quite good. Service was prompt and friendly, and prices were fair. A cute diner in a nice small town near the Hoover Dam. I would definitely go again.

The service was good and the food came quick. Not pushy, but attentive and friendly. I had the Chile relleno casserole, which was quite good. The beans were acceptable, the rice needed more salt for my liking. Fortunately, they put salt on the table. I liked the tortilla, but it is a thin one. Wife enjoyed her omelet, but ... read more

This is a fantastic place to eat. You walk in, someone greets you and then seats you. They ask you what you'd like to drink and then someone else comes to see what you'll be eating. I've eaten here plenty of times as well as worked there. They're staff is nice and they take care of you while your there. It's a great place to eat out ... read more

The best restaurant in Boulder City, NV! I travel 6 plus hour to eat here or when I am passing through for work! Been coming here for 3 years since finding it. The staff is great and very welcoming.

Has a very nice quaint, small-town and homey feel, with cute seasonal decorations. But servers seemed very inattentive and we had to wait quite a while to order and receive food. Typical diner fare with large portions.

Food was good and with reasonable prices. The food portions were plenty. Probably one of the most reasonably priced restaurants in the area.

Yum! We came in for dinner last night and it was great. Service was great, food measured up to their slogan "Homemade is our specialty".  Our experience was so good - we came back for breakfast.  Two words - Banana Bread! Place was busy, again service was excellent and food was good. So good, we'll probably try lunch.
