Excellent place to eat with tasty food, excellent customer service, and a 50's diner atmosphere. I especially love how they cut the pancakes to look like mouse ears!

Underrated hole in the wall type of place that is pure gold. For the cheap prices, you get an amazing side of amazing customer service and a welcoming ambience. Love it, keep doing what you're doing !

Skip the Denny's! Go next door and you will find this local business where they will feed you good food at a good price with kind service. Today was my first time and I will for sure be back!

First of all my first experience at this place was amazing. I had the most caring and amazing waitress. But however today 6/11 the service was absolutely horrible. I had the laziest server. She was to busy talking to staff instead of making sure our meal was ok. Two orders were wrong, she brought one item at a time to the table and went back to talking to coworkers And who ever was the cook on today made the gravy very spicy. The food was absolutely horrible.

Never returning!! Food is below average & prices are too high! No door on a woman's bathroom stall!!

The food is always delicious but the hospitality from the staff is what keeps us coming back. There was only one server this morning and the place was super busy... She was extremely busy... Never stopping and didnt miss a beat. She was positive and smiling like she did it every day. She is the reason we love HOT ROD DINER!!! GOOD JOB HONEYBUN. Remind your boss how much you rock and everyone that was there this morning would back you... You deserve a raise. Thanks for the wonderful service.

The dinner is now open for inside dining. The food is delicious and you get quite a bit for your money. I ordered a burger and I had to take half of it home to finish later. Enjoy!!

My motorcycle club has been meeting here for quite a while for the following reasons; friendly staff, great food, reasonable prices, and they always accommodate our gatherings. Can't say enough good things about this place.

This place has definitely taken a turn for the worse. Not only do the staff not enforce any masks during the time being for inside dining, they all around discard anyone whom decides to eat outside. I decided to take my family out for breakfast this morning at Hot Rod but ended up leaving hungry and disappointed. The waitress assured me outside dining was an option and when arriving the sitting area was dirty. She wiped the table down after we had been seated and only because we requested this. Afterwards we were left wiping our own chairs down because she did not. After taking our drink order she returned with two coffees and asked to take the drink order once more because " they had her running around and she forgot " which I understood the busy morning but was still unprofessional. We got our coffee but had to go inside ourselves to grab creamer, sugar and the other amenities. After waiting an hour for our food and watching others receive their orders I just had to patience to give. Not only did my grandfather not have the opportunity to eat, my one year old daughter was unable to because of this disorganized labor. This experience was complete bullshit and I will NEVER return to this place, also as a business owner I will advise everyone I know to stay away from here. Especially after the staff rolled their eyes at me after I decided to leave. Best luck to you guys, NOT. !
