Mr. D's Diner
By Allan Borgen, FeedMe411.com - Jan. 2015
Located in a classic, diner-looking restaurant of the 1950's, proudly stands Mr. D's Diner in La Verne. This full service and larger cousin to the popular Holiday Cafe in Ontario, features a delicious selection of the classic American breakfast, lunch and dinner items American diners are known for, along with some unique Greek and Mexican items you won't find at any similar style restaurant. Whether you order one of their amazing pancakes, a sumptuous sandwich or one of their impressive burgers, you are in for a treat.
My favorites include the Greek (Gyro) Burger, Chili Cheese Pastrami Fries, Florentine Benedict and White Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Give this food a try, you won't be disappointed!

Looking for a place that is reminiscent of a classic 1940-50s diner?
If so, a great new place to try is Mr. D's in La Verne.
On the recommendation of a reader, I went to Mr. D's, located just past the 210 freeway where Baseline and Foothill Boulevard meet.
Guests are greeted at the door and seated quickly. The server brought a menu and took my drink order right away. I was in a bit of a hurry, so the quick service was appreciated.
Mr. D's is full of diner charm, with nostalgic decor featuring a traditional lunch counter with stools, red and black vinyl booths, touches of shiny chrome and charming Route 66 - themed murals all over the walls. A variety of lively classic music also added to the old school diner ambiance.
To remind diners we're in the 21st century, there are a few flat screen televisions.
The eight-page menu includes an array of breakfast items (breakfast is served all day) such as skillet combos, omelettes, crepes, pancakes, waffles and many more. Breakfast on a budget is offered from 6 - 11 a.m. Monday through Friday.
The menu offers also lunch and dinner items including burgers, 16 kinds of sandwiches, plus eight kinds of melts, 13 types of salads, soups, seafood, pasta among other diner fare.
Their great dinner specials are offered from 5-9 p.m. starting at $8.99.
There is also a separate menu with lunch specials, starting at $8.99, such as spaghetti, meatloaf, pork chops, salmon, country fried steak and several more. The lunch specials are served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and include the soup of the day, coleslaw or fries.
Soups of the day include Navy bean, corn chowder, tomato bisque and clam chowder, all made from scratch. There are classic desserts on the menu as well, such as banana split, milk shakes, hot fudge sundaes, fruit pies and cheesecake.
The Wednesday lunch special featured all day I visited was a choice of an Albacore ture sandwich or roast beef melt, with soup and choice of fries or coleslaw for $8.99. I chose the roast beef melt, minestrone soup and coleslaw.
The minestrone soup arrived first, served in a cup with a packet of crackers. The fresh soup was delicious, with chunks of carrots, celery, green beans, beans and pasta swimming in a rich tomato base.
The roast beef melt sandwich and coleslaw arrived soon after. The large sandwich featured buttery, toasted slices of sourdough bread. The sandwich was wrapped in paper and sliced in half to give me a perfect view of the hefty ingredients stacked between the bread, which included thin, juicy slices of roast beef, grilled onions, Ortega chiles and melted Swiss cheese.
The sandwich was really good, but I only managed to eat half. The coleslaw, made from scratch, was creamy and a great side for a perfect diner-style meal.
Mr. D's staff was also outstanding. The server came back more than once to check on me, even though she was busy. I asked a few questions about the eatery and found out that Mr. D's opened in March. But by the looks of the crowd - ranging from young to old - it's already quite a popular spot.
Mr. D's was all that my reader promised: a pleasant diner with wonderful food and prices that fit most budgets.
