Stopped by while driving thru Boulder. We were attracted mostly by the 1950's era sign.That's where the diner theme stops. The rest is basically midwest antique mall meets post- menopausal woman's Pintrest feed.Had burgers and they were delicious. Portions are good. Staff was friendly but without any sort of personality. I'd dine again. More...

My friend and I stopped here for breakfast on our way to the Hoover Dam. It's a great little place with a large breakfast selection. The waitstaff was very friendly and the food was delicious and affordable. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the area. More...

We loved this little spot in Boulder. The service was great and the food was delicious! I had a Bloody Mary that was spot on and all of your beverages are served in mason jars. Thanks everyone!

This restaurant is awesome!! They have such a great menu and really friendly and fast service! Such a great combination of traditional diner classes with a southwest twist! I enjoyed the fajita beef salad (wow!) and for breakfast the juevos rancheros. Both were delightful and gluten free! They made great accommodations for my son who has food allergies and everything came out exactly as ordered. Hopefully you are here when they offer the corned beef hash special bc my husband says it's the best he's ever had. The sweet tea was fun (I didn't have it but my kids loved it) and the coffee comes in cute garden mugs. Best of all, it's very reasonable and we had leftovers to take for later. Def recommend this place if you are in the area! More...

Excellent service. A hangout for locals, which says a lot.  Large drinks (quart sized mason jars).Good food. Fast and friendly service. Very affordable for the area. Definitely a local diner with matching decor. We couldn't have been more pleased with a local joint! Others may justifiably give them five stars. No argument against that.  Great find!!! More...

Came to eat with my family on our vacation from Georgia. THE BEST FOOD WE HAVE HAD SINCE WE HAVE BEEN HERE!!! The Mexican dishes were ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! We also got the mozzarella sticks as an appetizer to eat till our food came out, OMG. The sticks were great, BUT THE MARINA SAUCE WAS AMAZING! I was dipping everything in it. It had a very delicious garlicky taste and perfect size chunks mixed with sauce. Can't wait to eat again before we leave!! More...

Veggie breakfast burrito with thick salsa is a must. Coffee is great and the service is fast and friendly. Liked it so much I bought one of their coffee mugs to remind me what a great breakfast I had in Boulder City on my way to see Hoover Dam.

We had our second visit here on the way out of town. The food is good and plentiful. This is a place for comfort food. It does make it a challenge when you are being mindful about your diet. That being said, I appreciated the veggie omelet with no mushrooms or chilies. Thank you! I was also happy the potatoes were held. I wish fruit was an a la carte item. I would have had that. The wheat toast is dense and delicious. It is thick so two slices felt like four. I just ate one slice. I don't care for margarine spread and the toast came with it. Next time I will order it dry. The service was friendly and attentive. It was early so it wasn't crowded. The coffee was very good! The ladies room was clean. There is a bowl of moisturizing hand scrub with a plastic spoon in it. (I remember it was there last time too). "Do not eat" is written on the paper towels under the bowl. The paper towel dispenser is directly above the bowl so drips of water are visible in the bowl and on the spoon. The product is probably good. I understand a desire to promote the product you have on sale by the register. However, some sort of clean, closed dispenser should be used. It's very off putting and doesn't compel me to try or buy the product. Overall we enjoy your establishment whenever we are in the area. Thank you! More...

We stopped in for breakfast due to all the positive reviews we read, and it did not disappoint!  I had the everything breakfast sandwich and he had the boulder burrito. We also added on the hash browns that were perfectly done with lots of crispy bits. If I didn't live so far away, this would probably be my regular spot to eat out. More...

A great little boy I was with stated, "When I was brought here, I believed it would be an average breakfast with lower than average food, but I was proven wrong of this place was certainly proved wrong. First of all, my family and I were greeted warmly, and after we were seated I was first given a jar-shaped glass of raspberry tea, which was very sweet and certainly admirable, as most others in this diner also prefer this drink. As for the main course, it was truly wonderful. It was presented well and looked and tasted well, with a good feeling of home. Not only that, but you can tell the eggs and sausage were made well when they go even better when eaten together. As for the French toast, I was presented with a bit much, but nothing I couldn't like; syrup served by a giant bottle, as if someone would drink so much, and quite excessive on the butter, but other than that, everything was delicious and filling, and I couldn't ask for more." As for the other dishes, they were fantastic.  Three eggs and potatoes, huevos rancheros and oatmeal are all great selections.  Bon appétit! More...

This is a gem!  I am so glad I found the Southwest Diner as I headed back to AZ from a convention in Vegas.  I wanted breakfast, but it was 2:00 in afternoon.  The diner did not disappoint.  It was excellent food and the service was excellent!  I will be back! More...

We really enjoyed our salads here for lunch. I had the Chicken Caesar and my wife had the Fajita salad. Both were excellent. I loved the large Mason type jar for water, so I didn't have to worry about a refill. Thanks for the great meals! More...

One of the gems you find in your travels. Everything we ordered was very good. The chicken quesadilla had more chicken in one slice than you usually get in a whole order. The chicken noodle is a bit strange but still good. I would give it 5 stars but they were out of chorizo both times I visited and the waffle machine was broken. Still definitely worth a visit.

We were looking for lunch after our trip to the Hoover Dam and found Southwest Diner a short drive away in Boulder City. I highly recommend. They have both traditional American classics and Mexican food too. I had the avocado BLT. It was a sunny April day and we were able to sit outside. They also have homemade pie which must be good because they were out of most varieties at 2:00 pm in the afternoon. I guess we will have to go back next time we are in Boulder City and have some pie!

I. Am. Impressed. The Southwest burrito with the mushrooms, black olives and mild green chiles is one of the best breakfast burritos, well, in the entire Southwest!! The flour tortilla was also just plain delicious. I can't wait to come back and try everything else on the menu. The service was good too! More...

This is a hidden gem in Boulder City. My husband and I were visiting Boulder City for the first time and couldn't figure out a place to eat at. I had cheese enchiladas and he got a jalapeño burger. Both were surprisingly excellent!! Also I love the drinks come in giant mason jars! I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a cute diner on the Main Street! More...

We stopped on the advice of a friend and he wasn't wrong. Very friendly as soon as you walk in. I ordered the homemade hash, eggs and banana bread, and my Husband the breakfast berino both were delicious. If you're still hungry or want to trade for later take home a piece of the homemade pie. Your piece it's actually a quarter of a pie for only 4.95. More...

We love the little town of Boulder City and will often go there to go antiquing and just to get away from Vegas for awhile. We like the small town charm.Every time we go we generally eat at another restaurant down the street. This particular day our go to restaurant was closed. We figured we'd give this place a try. We're glad we did.The food was great and the staff was friendly. We also enjoyed how the place was decorated. We're glad we discovered a new eatery. We'll be sure to visit it again. More...

We randomly found this place while on our way back from Hoover dam. We walked in and felt like we were walking into someone's house. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly wait staff. Every person that works there is so nice! They were extremely accommodating to our dietary restrictions and we opted for the rib eye steak. Marianne was our waitress and she was amazingly sweet! Our food came out fast and was beyond delicious. I would recommend this place to anyone passing through boulder city! More...

My husband and I had a little breakfast at this hidden gem. It is definitely a joint. I had the breakfast burrito and my husband ordered Bacon and eggs, hash browns with thick bacon and thick wheat country toast. Wow. It was amazing. Large servings too. I didn't finish my burrito because it was so large, but my husband finished his breakfast. The service was good and it was a place I would return to time and time again. Plus it was full with some good old friendly boys to add to the country atmosphere to add to the friendly morning chat. The price of our breakfast was only 22$. I ordered a diet soda and it came in a huge mason jar. Perfect. I will be returning as I often ride my bike around the lake and somewhat close to this Resturant. I will most likely go out of my way to stop in the future. Place closes fairly early. More...

Went for brunch yesterday. My spouse and I both had the chili relleno casserole, that comes smothered in red sauce, and accompanied by grilled potatoes and banana bread. All was quite good. Service was prompt and friendly, and prices were fair. A cute diner in a nice small town near the Hoover Dam. I would definitely go again. More...

We found this spot after a fun time exploring the Hoover Dam. I had the French toast which came with two slices of toast,one egg (I added another), and two bacon slices. My mom had the burrito which was HUGE! My hubs had a patty melt which looked and smelled amazing with curly fries. My son had chicken tenders from the kids meal which were also huge and very well seasoned. The drinks are served in huge mason jars which were super cute. The place is cute and cozy and offers little Knick knacks that make this place very unique. The servers were friendly, the food was hot, and the prices were reasonable. More...

This is a fantastic place to eat. You walk in, someone greets you and then seats you. They ask you what you'd like to drink and then someone else comes to see what you'll be eating. I've eaten here plenty of times as well as worked there. They're staff is nice and they take care of you while your there. It's a great place to eat out at. More...

This is an extremely friendly environment. Very kid-friendly. The food is amazing!!! Please try their Avocado BLT sandwiches for a quick lunch or if you're a hungry guy or gal, try their burritos! If you have a sweet tooth, their pancakes are HUGE; bigger than IHOB or Denny's and they don't skimp on the butter haha. The staff is very friendly and are very accommodating. They're always making sure you're drinks are filled and your food is the way you want! The drinks even come in these awesome mason jars. Did I forget to mention this is a family owned restaurant? It is! If you're lucky, you may end up catching a glimpse of the owner near the bar area! She has her own products such as salt scrubs for you ladies (or gentlemen) out there and her very own hot sauces. I'm a spicy fanatic so I love her habanero hot sauce! All the times I've been there they've treated me with respect no matter how many minor requests I've asked of them.One MINOR TEENY WEENY...."complaint" I have is that there are only 2 "single" bathrooms; one toilet for men's and one for the women's. Although I've seen both sexes use the others restrooms, I did notice at one point a line of people in the tiny hallway waiting on the restroom. So if you gotta go, go before someone takes your spot haha. But other than that, please come here! Whether your with your family or friends for some good food, or you want to have an awesome Bloody Mary or Screwdriver, this is the place to go!P.S. For all you tourists visiting, on the side of the restaurant is an old truck that you can take a family photo on! So go ahead and finish off a delicious meal with a loving memory of your visit to SouthWest Diner!! More...

Absolutely delicious food! Everything is home made. Was visiting Hoover Dam and wanted to eat something in a family run diner and came across this diner which serves breakfast lunch dinner all day!

Yum! We came in for dinner last night and it was great. Service was great, food measured up to their slogan "Homemade is our specialty".  Our experience was so good - we came back for breakfast.  Two words - Banana Bread! Place was busy, again service was excellent and food was good. So good, we'll probably try lunch. More...

This place was great !! Was seated right away and served our coffee while we looked at the menu. The food was really good and service was great . Went here for breakfast in the afternoon for my anniversary and was very pleased . If you are in Boulder City it is worth the stop . The inside is so cute with all the things to look at and you can feel history inside the restaurant . They also have very cute outside seating as well however, it was cold on the day we went so we stayed inside . Will definitely go back again with my husband again . All the little touches make it so inviting . More...

My brother and his wife took me here. They were right the food here is great.I had the Patty melt and onion rings.The food came out fast and looked good.The Patty melt was served with grilled orange and is on marbled rye bread.I enjoyed it, it's delicious and has to be one of my favorites.Onion rings are not easy to get right.I was happy to find out the onion rings are delicious.I found the bathroom to be clean and had a great health warning. The restaurant is on the smaller side and parking is on the street. More...

Great food, great service, no wait!  We thought to go to our usual stop when traveling thru, The Coffee Cup, but there was quite a wait and no parking. No waiting here and plenty of shaded patio seating, good coffee and the Bloody Marys looked great. Try the amazing SW potato pancakes...we vote them the best on the block. More...

We had a great lunch here today! I'm glad we finally made it in after driving by several times over the years. We started with bloody mary drinks, which were great! Our lunches were all very good, too! The burgers were some of the best we've had in a while and their bread (sourdough on one and rye on the other) was excellent!Hardly any wait to be seated, nice outdoor dining option, and friendly staff all rounded out a nice lunch experience!

Five stars? Let's see, I arrived at Southwest Diner for breakfast at 6:15 a.m. with three golf buddies. Two of us had the huevos rancheros, one the chorizo scramble and I had the chili verde omelet. All were spectacular. So good, in fact that seven of us returned for lunch after a round of golf: Three chili verde burritos, one tostada, one avocado BLT, one tacos platter and one chili size. Again, the food was flavorful, well-presented and hot when delivered to the table. We were served by a friendly, helpful young man who has worked at the Diner since he was a school kid.To put the icing on the cake, Southwest Diner has a full time baker who stocks the pie cabinet with a variety of delicious dessert options every day.Prices are very reasonable. There's a full bar and there is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoors is great when it's as beautiful a day as this was. Daily specials are great alternatives to the extensive regular menu.This place is a must-visit if you find yourself anywhere near Boulder City. More...

The breakfast burrito with green and red chili (Christmas) was to die for!! Similar to a burrito in Santa Fe, NM. The ham, broccoli and cheese omelet with green chili was also outstanding.

I'll have to go back here & update my review. First impression: cute exterior, rustic friendly atmosphere. Seating inside & outside. Service was quick and kind. Beverages served in oversized mason jars is a nice touch. Don't have to ask for refills that way. Food wise, was just ok. But part of that I believe is what my husband & I ordered. He got homemade corn beef hash, I got the everything breakfast burrito. Burrito was alright but nothing spectacular, corn beef hash was disappointing but our server saw my husband barely eating it and took it away, (we weren't going to say anything about not liking it/ask for it to go back to the kitchen) But our server didn't put the corn beef hash on the bill which was kind. Took home a bowl of chili for later. Like I said, I'll have to come back and order different things and see how I truly feel about the place food wise. Everything else was great though More...

My kids and I stopped in for a late lunch. I had been told about this diner by a coworker. I was expecting great things and wasn't disappointed at all.We were seated almost immediately and quickly offered drinks. Those were served in large Mason jars which was great on a hot day.I ordered the red Chile burrito and my kids had the chicken quesadillas. Our server was Phil and he was awesome. The food arrived quickly and piping hot. Everything was delicious!Phil returned several times to check on things and refill our drinks. I always appreciate an attentive server.The portions were very large and my kids needed to take some of theirs home. Phil offered us dessert but we were stuffed. I'm told the homemade pies are fantastic so we'll get some next time. All in all, the experience was top notch. I work in the service industry in Vegas and so I always like being treated so well when I'm out with my kids. I would recommend this diner and in fact, I already have and will continue to do so. Keep up the great work and thanks for taking such good care of us! More...

Stopped in at the tail end of a business trip with some time to spare before my flight. Got into town early to be able to spend some time at Lake Mead and this place was one of the first to open up in the morning. It's a charming, family-run place as far as I can tell and they make some excellent huevos rancheros! I look forward to visiting again on my next trip out here. More...

My family and I stopped here after exploring the small town of Boulder City. A lady in an antique shop overheard us talking about getting food and she recommended this diner to us. I'm getting tired of chain restaurants so this adorable diner was a nice break. The atmosphere was lovely and clean, the service was great and they made us feel very comfortable. My husband had French toast, my daughter had the kids spaghetti and I had a cheeseburger. Everything tasted great but the French toast was the absolute best dish of the 3. Afterwards we ordered a slice of apple pie and triple berry pie with a scoop of ice cream, I could barely eat half of it I was so full! Highly recommend getting a meal here with some pie! More...

Local or tourist to the dam, this diner is worth the stop.  Small town feel with food that is truly "like mom used to make".  Bit of a retro diner feel, the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.  We each ordered a bit different.  The breakfast was awesome.  Honestly could have split between two of us.  One had the classic bacon, eggs, "those potatoes " .  One had French toast, that was probably the best made in anywhere in the valley.  The last had a Mexican plate, that could rival any Mexican restaurant in the area.  So if you down here and looking for a home cooked, great value place this is it.  Will be going back!

I love this place! Every time we visit we have to stop by and sit on their patio for some coffee and a slice of pie. The whole menu is delicious, you won't be disappointed if you decide to try something different every time! I highly recommend the triple berry pie! More...

Came in with my sister, her fiance and my wife back in January. This place is great. Their food is really good and not overly priced. As a treat, my sister purchased one of the coffee mugs they sell. Will definitely come here again next time I am in the Vegas area. More...

Rode in on my bike from northwest Las Vegas, the ride was great. Once in Boulder City, stop by to have breakfast here. The service was great, a total team effort. They were attentive and polite, food was great and prices were good. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Boulder City. Keep up the great work guys. Thanks More...

Surprisingly good little diner here in Boulder City.Pop in here for lunch on a Saturday and went with the green chili verde burrito. It was super filling and seasoned to perfection. Don't worry it's not a spicy Verde concoction. But it does deliver well on taste.The service was spot-on and there was plenty of room inside. For dessert I opted to go with the peanut butter chocolate cream pie which was out of sight for the filling but the crust tasted a little stale. Definitely a place you want to stop by if you're passing through the area. More...

We have stopped here for breakfast on our way home to Tucson several times. The food has always been wonderful. I had the Chile Rellenos casserole and it was great. The banana bread is also delicious. The only reason it's not a 5 is because the coffee is kind of mediocre--plenty hot but not too flavorful. But I'd definitely return. More...

Thanks to Aubrey G. for steering us here. We were seeking breakfast on our way back to Tucson and noticed one of our favorite Milwaukee Yelpers had visited this spot in 2012, and most importantly, enjoyed it. We had the same stellar experience. I absolutely love old diners like this and this spot didn't disappoint. Great food, big portions, and friendly service! Lots of the menu has a Southwest flair; my partner loved his potato pancakes with corn and green chiles. I was impressed with my extra crispy hash browns and WHY OH WHY doesn't everyone offer homemade banana bread instead of toast? So delicious. Next time we drive to Vegas, we will most certainly be back. That pie board is calling me.PS The coffee mugs are flower pots with handles. How cute is that?! More...

First time in town. I had just finished a local run and decided to head over for a small bite to eat. The place was a little busy but we were able to get a table out in the patio. Our waitress came by and grabbed are drink and food orders. It was s beautiful day to sit ourself! Our food came relatively quickly given how busy they were. The food was great and received a generous portion. Far too much for me to eat after a run so I ended up with a to go box. If I am ever in the area, I will stop by and try something else! More...

We have been here a few times for breakfast and have enjoyed.  The prices may seem hi, until you get your food.  The omelettes are generous and tasty.  The pancakes and waffles are both good, and filling.  They know how to make "home fries" here.  Good coffee, good people.  Clean and inviting.  A good down-to-home place to start your day.  Dont forget to look for the daily specials on the board towards the back of the cafe!

I'd give it 5 stars but the decor needs to be freshened up. The service is friendly, fast and efficient. The menu has some old fashioned goodies as well as some Tex Mex entrees. Very generous portions with very reasonable prices. Chicken fajitas is my "go to". The caramelized onion and peppers are so delicious! It comes sizzling hot on a cast iron skillet that continues to cook and caramelize while you eat. The leftovers end up being even more fantastic. P.S. Save room for the pie, any pie, they're all scrumptious. More...

It was so big but I kept eating until I just had to pour the salsa on the rest of it to keep me from eating the whole thing! Hahaha (we weren't going home afterward so I didn't take the leftovers) We will be back to try other things on the menu! More...

Our usual place was busy, so we gave this sunny little diner a shot.I had the biscuits and gravy.  My husband tried the breakfast burrito.We were both very pleased with our meal and especially pleased with the fresh brewed iced tea and the friendly service.  This is one of the few places in the area that really gets the breakfast gravy right.  The gravy is white, fluffy, and has large chunks of sausage.  No tiny fine sausage.  This is hearty gravy!  The biscuit was fluffy and soft.  They were kind enough to accommodate me with a half order, so I really appreciated that as well.  Definitely recommend this diner as a good stop in Boulder City.

Always love heading to Southwest Diner in Boulder City. This family run breakfast diner is a unique experience in the desert city of Boulder where there is a rich history from the construction of the Hoover Dam and the workers and families they brought with them. When you walk into this diner you immediately feel how local the spot is, and the careful care it is run with.The food is truly home cooked. The banana bread and house specialties quickly give you a taste of what they are about. Always check their specials of the day as there is always a gem or two on the menu - we had pumpkin pancakes last time we went and suggested they add chocolate chips to the batter. Their breakfast burritos are also excellent.Definitely recommend taking the time to head to this desert gem. More...

My son recently moved from Las Vegas to Boulder City (25 Minutes from my house).  Every week when I come out to visit him I drive right by the place.  So today I picked him up and we decided to go eat here. We both thoroughly enjoyed the food, service, ambiance and prices.  Everything was great and we will probably be making this our father-son breakfast place very often from now on.  The steak and eggs was a great tasty meal and he enjoyed his breakfast too.

Was in town for a meeting, and we found this place on the main drag. They had a lot of options that looked really good. They had enough places and was t over crowded at 1230 for lunch. I had a great bowl of chili to start off but I could have just eaten that. I got the special Tex mex salad because I saw someone else with it. It was really huge and amazing flavor. They give you drinks in big maso jars which always seems to make something taste cooler and better. They had several pieces of pie but was too full to try them. I was very disappointed I didn't get too go back the next day for try something else and get pie. Wait staff was very nice and kept our glasses full. It's definitely got that small town diner feel too it. It had great food and that family welcoming atmosphere. If I'm in Boulder City again, I will definitely stop in even if it's just for s snack of pie. More...

Great little breakfast and brunch place. We stopped in Sunday morning on our way out of town. The place was pretty busy, there were a few tables open inside and outside on the covered patio. We were seated right away and looked over the menu.My wife chose the breakfast burrito and I decided to try one of their burgers. Our food was delivered quicker than anticipated. My burger came with fries and a drink included, it was huge and it was only the half pound! They also offer a double (or 1 pound.) Everything was very tasty, needless to say I didn't eat the fries.  The prices were reasonable, each of our meals were less than 10 bucks a piece. Service was quick and efficient, this is a good place to stop More...

Southwest Diner is a cute and quirky place. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the server was very nice and attentive. However my lunch was just OK. I ordered The California turkey sandwich and it wasn't that flavorful. My dining companion had a chili dog which he liked just fine. Since we were traveling we weren't able to take our leftovers home. I really liked visiting Boulder City and next time we will come back and try the homemade pie. More...

Awesome little restaurant on the way to The Hoover Dam! Okay here's the deal, we booked a vacation to Las Vegas to relax after a successful year in business. We sort of forgot or didn't know that it was cold in Vegas compared to usual. We also didn't know that Las Vegas is now gouging and totally taking advantage of its tourists. It's actually quite disgusting so instead of eating at our hotel, Caesars Palace for $35 per person for the buffet, we decided to try a little restaurant outside of the strip. Wow do we hit the jackpot! Not only is this place authentic but the food is amazing and the service was fantastic! I got the vegetarian omelette which was a modest $12.99. I would say it's actually worth more but I'll take it! Full of awesome vegetables, tons of eggs, amazing hash browns and their sourdough toast is incredible! I opted for the banana bread and it wasn't bad but not amazing. My wife's banana bread is way better. I found the piece a little thin and slightly dry. Go for the toast! The coffee is great too! So in summary, our breakfast ended up costing $34 instead of $35 per person at the buffet at our hotel on the strip. Beware people: Vegas is over the top expensive now! The cheapest part about it was our Uber rides. LOL More...

I went here with a friend and I have to say it was pretty tasty.  Inside is very cramped.  We chose to eat outside even though it was windy. With that being said it made my fries cool off very quickly. They have beer and wine.  I had a cheeseburger which claimed to be the juiciest and beefiest around.  First bite and BLOOP! grease dripped onto my shirt.  Maybe I didn't read the menu well enough I was making sure no mayonnaise came on it but it came with onions, tomato and lettuce and glop of mystery condiment which I scraped off. I didn't know all that stuff came in it or I would have asked for it plain. My friend had a patty melt and he liked it.  It looked delicious.  The service was good, our server had to take our order not facing us because of how windy it was so that was kind of funny. I didn't like the dessert selection. Lots of pies.  So if you are a pie person this is your place. More...

After three years as a resident, we just discovered Boulder City's gem. On the main street, you see a cacophony of unique stuff out front and the sign that promises Southwest Cuisine.We were in time for lunch, not so crowded on a Thursday as we expected, but busy nonetheless. Greeted by a pleasant waitress, we were seated and visited three times by three different people for our drinks. The staff is very attentive.We ordered Spinach Enchiladas for G-man and the Chili Relleno casserole for me. We were not disappointed! Flavorful with out being too spicy. Took half of mine home for supper.We will be back. More...

Try this business if you would like to revisit small town dining, along with great food and courteous service. More...

I'm small and it's always been hard for me to finish ALL my food (except for that one time that I went to Olive Garden and I inhaled my plate like I was fighting for air, but I digress...). I ordered the BBQ sandwich here because if there's BBQ on the menu, I need to try it. And the saucier the better. And if it's spicy then amazing. MAJOR bonus points if there are pickles, which there were. I give this place four stars...not five but only because the service was a bit on the slower side and there weren't many customers. But I do recommend the food and if I ever visit this place again and the service has gotten better, I will definitely update my review. More...

Southwest Diner is our favorite breakfast spot. We live in the Frenchman Mtn (more commonly; and incorrectly, known as Sunrise Mtn) area and we drive the 35 minutes regularly to eat here. The Biscuits and Gravy combo is my favorite. What is especially nice is that I can ask for my bacon crispy (the right way) and I actually get it crispy. Not one half crispy the other half flimsy, not burnt edges, not slightly more done than limp, but actually crispy. A concept chain breakfast spots just can't comprehend. I am by no means a coffee snob. I'll drink anything except Starbucks. But the coffee here, is exceptional. Very smooth and I almost always have two cups. The orange juice is to die for. On the pulpy side, which is fine with me, but if you don't like a lot of pulp, you've been warned. The eggs are always made exactly the way I ask them to be made. I always get "Those Potatoes" simply because they are awesome. Not a ton of seasoning, but cooked perfectly every time and such good flavor, they'll have you walking away saying, "Man! Those Potatoes.....!" We absolutely love Southwest Diner and will continue to make a special trip just for breakfast!! More...

If you are heading to the Grand Canyon this is the perfect stop for breakfast. The atmosphere is really cool and Boulder City seems like such a quiet small town. My wife and I were there way before any rush so we sat on the patio and really enjoyed it. The pancakes were huge, fluffy, and sweet. The syrup was very good too. My wife had a avocado meat and egg sandwich and it was amazing. Very fresh ingredients and bread. Those potato's were delicious. Great way to start our long day trip to the canyon. Also, one of the last stops for any real good home cooked food before the long day. The Canyon has basic carnival food that you kind of have to eat unless you bring you're own food. More...

After a 4th visit I feel I can leave a well informed review.The food:The 1st visit was just for pie. They have very good homemade pies. And very fresh.Second and 3rd visits, the food was good. I don't remember what we ordered on the second visit but on the 3rd I ordered a Denver Omelet and my girlfriend ordered the chili relleno casserole. But were also cooked well and very tasty. My girlfriend described the casserole as amazing.The 4th visit my girlfriend ordered the chili relleno casserole again because she liked it so much the 1st time. This time it was a over cooked on the bottom (a little hard for the butter knife to cut through) but she said it still tasted good. I ordered the pork chili verde omelet, and to me it is the best tasting thing I've had there. A little on the runny side but I didn't mind. Had a side of potatoes which were also a little over cooked this time around but still good.The place: A cute little southwestern style place. Tables on the inside are slightly overcrowded but not horrible. There is very nice patio seating for those wonderful weathered days. The place seems to be clean. Bathrooms are clean.The service:On each of the 4 times we sat right away even though the place looked rather busy from the street. The staff is very pleasant and the food seems to come out to us in decent timing.On this visit I decided that this restaurant is my preferred place to dine in Boulder City. And I've been to other popular cafes in the area. I've read another reviewer give a bad review of this place because they had to wait 20 minutes without being acknowledged. That's too bad but I'm sure doesn't happen a lot but this person isn't willing to try Southwest again. But they'd rather go wait for up to 45 minutes wait at another popular cafe in Boulder City.

The kids shared a cheese quesadilla and was big enough to fill them up. We were too full to try the pie but they looked gorgeous and delicious. Next time for sure! Service was great.

This is only my second time here. The first was 2 years ago. Since that time I have literally dreamt about the chile relleno casserole. It did not disappoint!!!! You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu, but that casserole -OMG! Now, about the place itself. It's perfectly charming. The epitome of what you would expect of a small town diner. The staff was awesome, with a special shout out to Sara. Everyone was friendly and had plenty of smiles to share, even in the midst of a rush. Glasses were never empty and everything was plentiful. The decor was wonderful too! Antique appliances and barn windows ... just charming! (I said that, didn't I?)It was obviously a place where locals call home, but as an outsider, you don't feel like a visitor- they treat ya like family.  This is worth the drive and more! More...

This is one of my favorite breakfast diners in the Las Vegas area. They have suite indoor seating and a large sidewalk outdoor seating are. The menu is limited for breakfast lunch and dinner, but the quality is excellent. With the lone exception of their bread for toast, everything is made fresh. Furthermore they offer selections for vegetarians. The best breakfast dish is the Chili Relleno Casserole. It is delicious. Also food portions are reasonable not too much and not to little. Solid four stars. The ONLY issue we have is finding parking because this place is always packed and parking is sparse. Be prepared to take a stroll after you park and before you eat. More...

Not only is it cooler temperatures, but you get a front row view of that gorgeous BC sky. The kind of service you'll receive when coming here is hard to find nowadays. Everyone is so genuine and kind. As far as food goes, all I have to say is...amazing. I got the hot dog with grilled onions. It has that true homemade taste that can't be beat! And the best part? They serve your drinks in mason jars. Any place that serves me my drink in a mason jar is a winner in my book. So. Cute. More...

OH MY GOD what a FANTASTIC random stop for us,  Las Vegas locals went and visited Hoover dam, stopped here after and had the best burger and strawberry rhubarb pie of my life. I'm always searching for a great burger and this was perfection.  The pie? Perfect.... amazing crust flavor texture everything.  Must check out!! More...

Service was pretty good. Waitress did bring the wrong drinks, only three other tables full at the time. Drinks served in a mason jar, which I love! Kids ordered spaghetti, had a very weird flavor. Lots of garlic, but they liked it. Chicken fried steak was good. Gravy has a good flavor. Southwest breakfast burrito, huge burrito! Good flavor very, very greasy! Had to disassemble burrito just to eat it, over all was good. Had to wave waitress down to refill drinks. Small town restaurant with small tow service. More...

Very cute restaurant. There is outdoor and inside seating; the outdoor seating has misters for hot weather. Service is prompt and friendly. The food is great - you can tell its made fresh. Portions are good as well - definitely not skimpy. Parking is on the street. There is a back parking lot, but its easier to park out front on the street. I would recommend this place to anyone!

What a find! We go to Las Vegas a couple of times a year and usually eat breakfast in Vegas before heading home. This time we just figured we would find something on the way home. Thought Boulder would be a good place. Finding a place was not as easy as I had thought. We passed this place and drove on into town. Not finding what struck our fancy we turned around and head back the way we had come. This place had an interesting decor. The parking was not easy as it seems to be a popular eating place for local people. We sat outside and had an excellent breakfast. Very friendly people and great service.This is the place we will be stopping on our next trips. More...

I loved the food . And when I give stars I do it on comparable places and as far as cafes and dinners this is one of the best. So if you are going to Hover Dam.

This was an excellent random stop. After a trade show in Vegas, we were headed back to Phoenix and stopped for a bite about 4:30pm on a Thursday. The avocado burger and a chicken sandwich with avocado were tasty and the drinks were large. (I don't know why I adore those large Bell jars so much but I do!) The fries are not ones I normally like, but they were tasty and the dipping sauce (ketchup, mustard, and buttermilk) was an excellent addition. Dad and I rounded out the meal sharing a piece of apple pie that felt like it was a quarter of the pie tin! Yum!The service was good; the place comfortable. There wasn't anything over the top, but it was exactly what we were looking for. I will definitely stop again. More...

Im going to have to disagree with Dover's review. Probably one of the cutest little diners I've been to. We were greeted immediately and asked what we wanted to drink. My parents got coffee and my brother, boyfriend, and I got cold drinks. The coffee cups were adorable and cold drinks are served in mason jars. All staff were quick to ask if we wanted refills, even with less than half the drink gone. I got a breakfast burrito and it was huge, I couldn't finish it. My boyfriend got chicken friend steak and it's the best I've tasted. My brother got pancakes, he was going to get a full stack but it was recommended by the waitress to get a half stack. Good recommendation, he was stuffed. My parents split an omelet and couldn't finish it because it was so big. All of the staff we encountered were beyond amazing. This was a quaint little place with great breakfast and exceptional service. More...

Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. They have indoor and outdoor seating options. Unique decor and gift shop items. We plan to go back tomorrow to try the pumpkin pancakes and corn beef hash.

I'm a Boulder City first year resident and Southwest Diner is on my short list of favorite eateries. Indoor and outdoor seating is a feature. We tried outside once but the flies drove us inside. Certainly not the diner's fault. The staff is incredibly hometown friendly. Portions are large enough that you can plan on taking half home for a second meal. My favorite is the one pound hamburger steak smothered in onions with mashed potatoes and gravy. Very few people like, or have tried, liver and onions. It was especially good. Breakfast dishes are very, very good and the stack of pancakes can feed a village for a week. Prices are low for the quality and quantity. The place is always packed so parking is sometimes a concern. Oh yes, be sure you try the Sea Salt-Mineral Oil hand washing compound offered for free in the rest room. Worth the price of admission.

I make one annual road trip from Phoenix to Vegas every September for a bicycle race called CrossVegas. For the last 3 years I have burned rubber out of Vegas early in the morning to have breakfast at THE BEST diner that is NOT VEGAS. Classic American breakfast fare. The Corned Beef Hash is definitely NOT from a can but actual slow stewed shredded corned beef. Standard breakfast breads for toast include banana bread. Standard bottomless cup of coffee fuels my drive for hours. More...

They also have really good pancakes there. Service was pretty attentive. Would definitely dine here again in the future if I'm ever in the area. More...

After visiting the Hoover Dam, I was hungry and this little diner, smack-dab in the middle of historic Boulder City did the trick.  I had the meatloaf dinner, which believe it or comes with a ton of food.  In addition to two hearty portions of meatloaf, it came with mashed potatoes, corn, fresh cornbread and ice cream...all included!  You also have the option to add a soup or salad for $1.50, which I opted for.  This place is cooking up some of the best country cooking and if you don't visit, then you are doing yourself a disservice.

What a lovely little diner. The place is clean and so are the bathrooms. This small diner is normally busy but the staff is super friendly and always tries to accommodate my party of 6. My children enjoy ordering breakfast for lunch. I like Les Club sandwich. It has fresh chunks of roasted turkey that most places don't have. Great favors and great people. This cute little diner also has nice patio seating if you'd like to enjoy the 8 - 9 months of the year that the temperature is below 100 degrees. I always enjoy stopping off here whenever we get to Boulder City. Parking is on the street out front and on the side as well. Additional parking directly behind the diner too in a small parking lot.  Debbie was amazing and oh so nice. She makes this place feel like home. More...

I cannot believe what luck we had finding this place! The chile relleno casserole was delicious. They have about 8 types of homemade pies, milkshakes, breakfast lunch and dinner. My green salad was better than expected. Green and the balsamic was fresh made. Great for kids!!! My kids lived their fries bacon and hot dogs. They have milkshakes also and will gladly split for kids. The decor is fantastic. The owners really did a great job making this a rustic "hometown" real diner. I also purchased the sea salt hand scrub which they have samples of in the restrooms. It is really great here. Highly suggest after a day or 110* at Hoover Dam. Just to note after spending a ton in Vegas...what a treat to get out of town for just an afternoon for great home cooked food. Trip Advisor rated 4.5 and an A rating for Nevada Food Bureau. Not to be missed!!!!! More...

We stopped in for breakfast after heading out from Vegas to Hoover Dam.  We all were hungry!  My husband and I own a burger spot, so we can appreciate good food.  He ordered French toast and biscuit and gravy, I had the Spicy Potato Pancakes breakfast.  I have learned to order food we don't make at our spot.  He enjoyed his breakfast, meaning he ate everything, as did I.  The sausage patties on the kids plate looked crisp on the edges, but I didn't taste them.  My niece said her bacon was not the best she has had and her "those potatoes" could have more flavor.  Overall, we were satisfied with the service and our food.  We know everyone cooks differently and we certainly appreciate made to order food!

Probably one of the cutest diners we ate at on our road trip. It is located six miles from Hoover Dam and in the direction towards home so we had to stop. The food here is good and they people are lovely.Everything Sandwich: Bread, healthy serving of avocado, egg and bacon (minus the cheese)... Everything I want in a sandwhich!Chicken Fried Steak: Super hearty/heart attack. Tender meat, think delicious gravy. Definitely and awesome indulgence meal if you can afford the calories.Santa Fe Potato Special: The best I can describe it is potato pancakes with corn and cilantro served with sour cream and a side of spiced apple slices (sorta like apple pie filling but not soggy and with a little crunch). Eat it however you want according to our server!Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie: like a peanut butter cup but airy! And in pie form. Super cute diner - would come again if I'm in the area. *they change their decor based on the season* More...

We came here for lunch as we were heading out of Vegas & onto our next stop Phoenix. What a great recommendation from both Yelp & the local gas station, this is definitely a gem that's off the main highway. This is a local spot as you'll notice but there are also a lucky few such as I who must always try something other then your horrible chain!! The service was great with zero complaints, we chose to sit outside on the covered patio which was very nice with a calm breeze swaying past us. We both chose the fresh brewed iced tea which of course were rightfully served in their respectful mason jars, lol!! We also both had the bacon cheeseburger made with angus beef. Now I'm normally extremely picky with my burgers & the quality of beef that they use, therefore I rarely order one when we go out but this gem just gave me the feeling that I wouldn't be disappointed!! Well let me tell you I don't give five stars without good reason & this local spot earned every bit of that rating & then some. So so good with just enough bacon, lettuce & tomato also. They know a thing or two about making an awesome burger. The ambience was just as great as there was actually a table of bikers sitting right besides us who were as friendly as could be. Note the picture I took pertaining to bikers. These guys were talking shop about AC work & systems which is my hubby's field & I just chimed right in & they ended up talking with my hubby for a good 15 minutes asking our story & why we chose to relocate. Who'd see that every day a table of bikers shooting the s**t with some black guy & his white wife without a single thought to it. With that being said don't judge a book by its cover & I can't wait to come here again!! More...

What a great treat. There we were in the middle of nowhere, we thought, and we made a choice. We decided to try the Southwest Diner. Our small group of eight adults who are normally difficult to please were all thrilled. These people really took care of us. In a flash they rearranged the seating to suit us, at a busy time of day. We were pleasantly surprised with the food and the service. Being just day trippers made no difference to the management. We didn't really expect to be treated like royalty. The staff couldn't have been nicer, the food was excellent. The regular local patrons contributed by being so friendly. One big happy family. Even if you have to go out of your way, just do it. This is all about what American hospitality is. More...

Drinks (both tea and water) came in massive quart Ball mason jars.  If you're not used to the heat these were very welcome.Finished up with strawberry rhubarb pie. Flavor was fantastic! Not too tart.  Crust was very good and was browned to perfection (not white and pasty).  Service was reasonably fast and friendly.  Overall nicely done. More...

We were seated right away and our server, Kaleb, was pleasant and attentive... always a plus, in my book!The sandwiches we ordered were generous in size, very tasty, and served fairly quickly. The cucumber salad was particularly enjoyable, and the prices reasonable (especially compared to the outrageously inflated Vegas prices!). The bathrooms were also pretty clean. If this place was local to where I live, and I wish they were, I'd be a regular customer. Recommended, without a doubt! More...

If you have just finished a rainy cold half iron man and you want the perfect recovery meal you can not ask for a better experience so worth taking a short detour past the exit to fill that empty feeling that you know gnaws at your hungry body.  If you skip the pie you have missed a gastronomic explosion of flavor and sin. The albondigas soup is fantastic and all the specials are a taste sensation of epic proportions. More...

I was driving and couldn't look at the Yelp app for restaurants in Boulder City so my mom and friend looked out their windows until they saw a unique, quaint restaurant on the corner of the street. We had to stop because of how adorable their decorating was on the outside.The restaurant was packed for lunch but there were a couple more tables open and we were seated immediately and promptly served water in quart size jars. The inside was just as cutely decorated as it was outside.The food was actually the best meal we had eaten since flying into Vegas four days earlier. We ordered one cheeseburger, fries, and drink combo ($8.55), one avocado burger, fries, and drink combo ($9.70), and an avocado BLT ($7.95). We had the option of 1/3 lb vs 2/3 lb burgers and the 1/3 lb was plenty big but we ate most of it since we wanted to avoid taking leftovers to the hotel. The fries looked like McDonald's fries but tasted better and the fry sauce was the perfect dip for them. Our drinks also came in quart size jars.After visiting the Hoover Dam we decided to return later that day for homemade dessert pies. We ordered two slices of apple pie a la mode and a triple berry pie a la mode ($4.50 ea). The pies looked better than they tasted. The crust was bland and flour-like and it was the majority of the pie which overpowered the flavor of the apple filling (see photo). The vanilla bean ice cream helped offset that blandness some but not completely.Service, however, wasn't bland. We had two or three servers at once the first time around and each of them were friendly and attentive. Overall, our first impression of Southwest Diner was a positive one. We'll just go somewhere else for dessert next time. More...

I've only tried this place once.  So far the chili verde burrito is very good.   Service is a little slow.  The menu is a little all over the map.  American and Mexican dishes.  More like a diner than a burrito place.  $10 for a burrito is a little steep, but I have to admit it's better than most I've tried.  Next time I will try a different item and form a more broad opinion.  The pies in the case looked really good.  Only negative is the parking which is basically in a back lot.

What an amazing place to stop and have breakfast on the way to the grand canyon. The servers were super friendly, sweet tea was very good, and the food was awesome. I had the country fried steaks w/sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, and those potatoes. Also, the banana nut bread was very good! I definitely suggest stopping by this restaurant if you're in the area.

When driving from Hoover Dam back to Vegas for our flight iut, we decided to stop local for dinner. Thanks to Yelpers for great reviews we found the Southwest Diner in Boulder City. As soon as we drove up we knew we would love it. Everything is home made and served with a smile. Portions are huge, so we left full. I had lemonade - yummy and not too sweet. Drinks are served in quart mason jars. My honey had the 'Cowboy', a grilled roast beef sandwich served with fries (the picture only shows half the sandwich because i forgot to take the pictures at first). I had the shredded beef burrito, served with fresh tortilla chips and delicious salsa. There were lots if specials and lots of choices, it was hard to decide! We loved it, and so will anyone who is tired of cookie - cutter franchise food. More...

So glad we finally got a chance to try this little diner. Everything tastes homemade. I had the chili relleno casserole and was great for $9.95 and even comes with fresh baked bread. The service is friendly and fast. We will be back. More...

Awesome find for us in Boulder City. We were not eating bread of potatoes, so no comment on them. However, everything was awesome. From the greeting, service and staff. Amazing bacon and food as well. Loved their coffee cups so much we got two. More...

I love this place, it's super cute inside and the waiters/waitresses are always so sweet. Every item that I've ordered here has been great, I love the avocado burger. However, my friend did order the nachos once and he was completely not pleased with them. So my suggestion would be, order a burger not nachos. :) More...

We accidently stumbled onto this place when driving back from Vegas and boy am I glad we did. Small, Charming, Quaint. Coffee was superb and served in cups that resemble plant pots. Iced tea was stellar and served in mason jars(Texas style) Chicken fried steak was cooked perfectly. I ordered the gravy on the side with fried eggs, white toast and potatoes. Food was served promptly. Everything was hot and delicious. This will be our normal stop every year when we go to Vegas. More...

We stopped in here on our way back from SEMA and let me tell you it was the perfect way to get the Vegas out of our systems. Cozy atmosphere, good coffee, great breakfast food and the gravy with big chunks of sausage? Amazing. Our waitress was also sweet and helpful. Definitely going to make coming here a yearly tradition. Thanks guys! More...

I got the Chili Relleno Casserole. I love the traditional dish, but this hit the spot. I couldn't finish it all so I had plenty to take for a snack later on. Good atmosphere and they were on top of the service. I was checked on by 3 people at various times, but it wasn't over the top. The price was right too! More...

I've passed this diner many times on the way to explore other hidden gems in Boulder City.  However, this trip into BC was all about Southwest Diner and it's delicious offerings.  There is a small lot located behind the restaurant to park and we found interesting knickknacks and antiques throughout the interior and exterior of the space on our walk to and fro.  This restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating (complete with misters).  It was pretty hot out, so we chose to sit indoors, but there were a few tables of diners enjoying their meals al fresco.  We were greeted and seated immediately upon entering.  The larger dining room was full, so we were seated in the smaller cash register side of the space.  Seating is a little tight in spots at these 4 tables, but everyone was friendly.  I even got some unsolicited advice from a regular at the next table on what to order.  Side note, they have their full menu available all day, every day, so you can order pancakes for dinner or soup for breakfast if that's how you roll.The diner does offer cocktails, but I ordered a very good iced tea in a giant mason jar and the BF got a coffee in the cutest flower pot style mug.  He said the coffee wasn't that great, so he switched to an Arnold Palmer after the first cup.  But I bought a couple of the mugs for $10.95/ea because they were darling and will make nice Christmas stocking stuffers.For my meal I ordered the Chili Verde Omelet with "those potatoes" and the banana bread.  The green chili was very good and the omelet had a nice mix of flavors.  The potatoes, mixed with green peppers and onions, were good, but lacked salt.  The banana bread was amazing!  Moist without being oily, with big chunks of walnuts.  Good thing you only get two slices, because I could have eaten the whole loaf!The BF ordered the Special #3: 1 egg, sausage patties, and pancakes and he added an additional egg for $0.50.  I tried the plate sized pancakes and they were good, but the batter lacked something I could not pinpoint...maybe a splash of vanilla?I also picked up a fresh whole housemade triple berry pie to go.  We had company for dinner and this made a perfect dessert.  Everyone basically licked their plates clean.  This thing was sooo sinfully delicious.  I would definitely try their other pies on our future visits.

As a resident of Boulder City, I can say we eat here often and it is always good food.  Sometimes the service gets overwhelmed but its understandable.  We really enjoy the breakfast.

We took a trip to Las Vegas from Houston, TX and decided to visit Boulder City to check out the Hoover Dam... When arriving to Boulder City I checked out on Yelp to find a place to eat and Southwest Diner was on the Top 10... So I took my family there... Loved that they served you drinks in a Mason Jar!!! They had a large variety of food choices on the menu... My family picked a different plate... And everyone was Satisfied!!! Large servings... Country style like Texas... The pies were phenomenal!!! Pricing was great!!! Next time I go to Boulder City I will stop by and eat there again!!! More...

Whoa, Nelly!  Okay, so, my California sandwich was pretty tasty. Our had some of the best bacon I've had in a sandwich, ever.   The fries were good. The fry sauce was thin and left a little to be desired. Now,  the chocolate/peanut butter cream pie was effing delicious. EFFING DELICIOUS.  If it comes to your table looking limp and lame, don't let that fool you. It's crazy good. More...

A wonderful diner next door to the motel we stayed in (highly recommended, the El Rancho Boulder Motel). My kids raved about the food, and deservedly so. Try their banana bread, potato pancakes, and omelettes. We give this five stars for a diner. Four if it were a different kind of restaurant, but five for a diner. It was good eating! More...

Awesome food and amazing service!  Be sure to check this place in Boulder City out, perhaps on your way to or from Hoover Dam.  My daughters and I had breakfast there and couldn't have been happier.  Great menu selections.  I had the chili relleno casserole, which was truly delicious.  My daughters had a breakfast burrito and one of their breakfast sandwiches and really enjoyed them.  The wait staff were very attentive and couldn't have been friendlier.  Great place all around and especially convenient if you're staying next door at the El Rancho Boulder.

Homemade food with a very homey & cool atmosphere! Would you drive to Boulder City for some breakfast for dinner? I would! For starters Boulder City is only half an hour from the strip & sometimes it's nice to take a relaxing drive. Sunday's are perfect for a quick trip to the lake & downtown Boulder City! We've been coming to this diner for a few years now & it's our favorite spot here. It's our favorite because we haven't tried anything else! I tell myself each time that we need to try something new & then we see the cool retro sign & can't help ourselves! The decor is really special & it feels like you've stepped back in time, love it all! All of the servers are awesome & the food tastes great, very fresh & everything I've tried I've liked a lot! Let's begin with a simple breakfast - everything is cooked to perfection & the banana bread is always fresh (off the hook). I've also tried the southwest potato pancakes that are very unique with an awesome kick & the BBQ roast beef sandwich on a French roll is to die for (comes with bomb curly fries). My man has had the liver & onions which he loved and steak & eggs. He's also ordered soup a few times that come in cute little mason jars and all the soups have been great. Let's not forget about the homemade pies here! Holy crap they are so good. We've had apple, blueberry & peach. They come out warm with ice cream. There's something special about home cooking and they do everything right here. This place is a must if you're ever in Boulder City! Almost forgot! They have salt scrub in the restrooms! They are always different & today it was coconut! It smells like heaven & leaves your hands feeling ultra soft. What a nice touch!!!!! More...
