Diner of Los Gatos (Los Gatos, CA)

Before making it to San Fransico and the bay area, we decided to stop at the Diner of Los Gatos. It felt like midnight to me, but it was only 5:30 pm.  When we arrived, there were only a few parties in the diner which was nice because I was hungry.

Diner of Los Gatos Atmosphere: A

The Diner of Los Gatos looks like a diner from both the outside and the inside. When you drive by the Diner of Los Gatos, you immediately see a somewhat out of place diner (in a good way).diner at los gatos ca

The entire inside is chrome, with red booths, tables, and a lot of photos of Elvis. There is a giant cardboard cutout at the front, that I thought was a real person, many many times.

Diner of Los Gatos Coffee: B

The coffee was hot and fresh, but nothing too exciting. It was good, but there was nothing to write home about.

Diner of Los Gatos Food: A

The Diner of Los Gatos menu has a small selection listed on a trifold laminated menu.

Some of the Diner of Los Gatos menu items that stuck out were:

  • Build your own burger
  • Greek Feta Cheese tossed in a light dressing with a cup of soup
  • Eggs benedict and poached eggs with hollandaise sauce and has browns
  • Grilled chicken breast

We were hungry, so we decided to order the Greek platter. It came with gyro meat, pita bread, french fries, tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce. It came only a minute before our meals, so we weren’t able to enjoy it as much as I hoped.  In all, it was good. I’ve never had french fries including in a greek platter, but sure why not?

For my entree, I ordered the Garlic Burger. We were only an hour or so, from the Garlic Captial of the Country, so it seemed appropriate.  The Garlic burger was massive, and there was plenty of garlic. It was cooked perfectly, and I have no complaints. It was one of the better burgers I’ve had.

Diner of Los Gatos Service: B

It took longer than anticipated to order our food, but once we did, it came out quickly. I would have preferred to enjoy my appetizer versus taking one bite, and the entree was there, but there isn’t a need to complain about food coming out too fast.

For my entree, appetizer, and coffee, the cost was $30.
