Daddy’s Diner – Richmond Missouri

We don’t like to eat much of anything on those mornings where we have a bit of a drive ahead of us.  The reason is simple…if I eat very much I get sleepy…not a good thing when one is driving!  So we normally just have some juice and then we fill up our travel mugs with coffee and hit the road.

Sooner or later however, the need for feed overtakes us and we start looking for a likely spot where we might satisfy our hunger pangs.  We were looking around while we were driving through Richmond Missouri and we spotted Daddy’s Diner!  It had a little business despite the odd hour that we stopped so we decided to give it a try… 

Daddy’s Diner has the look of your basic local restaurant coupled with a bit of a diner feel given the counter and stools.  The décor was simple, the restaurant was clean and our server was efficient.

Much to our delight, we discovered that breakfast is served all day!  In our book, that’s a winner since breakfast is our favorite meal… 

I had my standard breakfast…Two eggs over-easy with crispy hashbrown potatoes, 2 sausage patties and toast. ($6.95)  Everything was cooked just right!  Yes, that is ketchup on my hashbrowns and the orange spots on the eggs are sprinkles of Tabasco…

We’re always looking for great Biscuits and Gravy so we asked for a half order that we could share. ($2.99) I put Tabasco on my half and started eating before I remember to take a photo… It wasn’t the best we’ve ever had but both the biscuit and the sausage gravy were better than average.

Laurie ordered her standard breakfast as well… She had 2 eggs over-easy, with bacon, crispy hashbrowns and toast. ($6.95) The bacon was a cut above the usual, (critical to a bacon lover) and consequently, Laurie was content as we prepared to get back on the road to Omaha again…

The menu at Daddy’s Diner isn’t huge but you do get a lot of food for your money.  Items like Liver and Onions, Country Fried Steak and a Pork Tenderloin Dinner are examples of the offerings among the entrees.  Entrees come with a potato, another side and a dinner roll.  The most expensive entrée on the menu costs $8.95! 

Daddy’s Diner is located at 1003 East Main Street in Richmond Missouri.  Phone: 816-776-1013.  Daddy’s Diner is on Facebook at
