On the way home from Santa Barbara, I stopped at Beeps Diner in Simi Valley. I had high hopes because on the website and by photos, Beeps looked like a stereotypical old-school diner. I decided to order takeout since I was on the road and didn’t want to spend too much time there. Sadly, I still ended up spending a lot of time at the diner.
Beeps Diner Atmosphere: A
If you are looking for an old-school stereotypical diner, Beeps Diner is it. It lives up to expectations. Even though it’s located in a strip mall, it still has all of the diner vibes you can imagine. Outside it has a retro look that stands out, and there is also an outdoor seating section.
Beeps Diner is a retro restaurant filled with booths, tables, a long bar, and old-school memorabilia. You feel like you are walking in a blast from the past.
Since we were heading home, I opted for no coffee. Plus, I had a lot that day and 3anted to sleep.
Beeps Diner Food: A
Beep Diner has all of the food options you want and needs in a diner. They have all-day breakfast, including fun options like a whacky waffle, including cheese, scallions, bacon, avocado toast, or even a “big meat omelet.” They also have plenty of lunch options, including multiple different sandwiches, an entire page of salads, subs, and burgers. You can see the entire Beeps Diner menu here.
I wasn’t sure what I was in the mood for and settled on a breakfast burrito. Wow, I was impressed, and it was one of the biggest burritos I’ve ever had. The breakfast burrito came with eggs, jack cheddar cheese, potatoes, and salsa. I was shocked at how large it was, and they didn’t skimp out. It is also just good and one of the better breakfast burritos I’ve had in a while. I have no complaints and would eat it again.
Beeps Diner Service: D
I ordered takeout. The hostess and waitress were friendly, but sadly, the food was not ready when I arrived. It mentioned my food would be prepared at X time. When I came, they fumbled around and said they hadn’t even started making the order yet. Ultimately, my food was ready just over an hour after ordering.
The breakfast burrito was only $9.99, and many would say that meal was enough for two. You can find something between $9-12 that will fill you up, and many would opt to take as leftovers.
Beeps Diner Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back?
I liked Beeps Diner in Simi Valley, and I would definitely go back. There are so many options that sound interesting. I would probably go at an off time, so I’m not waiting an hour for a meal.
