When asking for recommendations, the Marietta Diner kept popping up, so I decided to check it out. After running the Polar Bear 5k, I arrived around 11 am. Every parking space was filled, and I thought it might be a long wait because there were several parties waiting outside. Luckily, they had a small booth for two, and we were immediately sat.
The Marietta Diner has the stereotypical shiny and metallic exterior. It’s all chrome. The inside is massive, and it’s one of the biggest diners I’ve ever been too. It is clean, and despite being busy, no one was sitting on top of each other.
The waitress was kind. She refilled our drinks, and our food was brought out quickly. Even though it was so busy, we were in and out of the Marietta Diner within an hour. The speed was impressive!
The Marietta Diner has every option you can imagine in a diner. It would fit right in in New Jersey. Someone mentioned their Greek food was good so I decided to order a Greek omelet. I was surprised the Greek Omelet didn’t come with Gyro, so I added that too.
The omelet came with hash browns and a biscuit. The biscuit was delicious. There was nothing unique about the hashbrowns. The Omelet itself was good except I found they didn’t add a lot of Gyro meat. I thought they had forgotten it at first! The food was good but I do wish there was more gyro meat in the omelet.
The dessert case looked like one of the best dessert cases of any diner. I’m not usually a person who orders dessert at lunch, but I could not pass up their red velvet roll. There was a lot of frosting and the cake was moist. The red velvet roll was great, and despite leaving stuffed, I was glad I ordered it.
For my coffee, omelet (with Gyro) and red velvet roll it was $29. They charged $5 for the limited amount of Gyro meat I received which was not worth it.
Overall/Would I come back?
I liked the Marietta Diner, but their menu is overpriced. When I go back to Atlanta, I might go somewhere else. To pay nearly $20 for an omelet is worth it to me personally. I would stop in for cake.
