#LocalsWeighIn: Best Diners in Corpus Christi

Sandi's Diner Red, Hot & Blue



704 Ayers St.

Sandi's Diner Red, Hot & Blue is a definite local favorite! Located right outside of downtown, Sandi's Diner gives something special to your tastebuds! Classic, 1950s style decor and delicious burgers. What more could you want in a local diner?

The only downside was the food was too good to stop eating. Man am I full! - Randy C.

Everything I've eaten at Sandi's is awesome! The poblano soup,  their specialty starter, is  spicy, but not heavy. The pizza burger harkens to Angelo's Pizza, which was local favorite back in the day. Sandi's pizza burger is better and made with homemade buns and fresh-tasting marinara. The fried green beans are light, crispy, and addictive. The funnel cake fries make for a satisfying sweet treat that a group can share. Everyone at Sandi's is friendly and professional, and I have  enjoyed talking with Sandi about the pictures and memorabilia on the walls. Sandi's Diner is a great locally owned and operated lunch venue. - Donna B.


Southern Charm Home Cookin'


2426 Rand Morgan Rd.

The best buffet is one made all with love, and Southern Charm Country kitchen gives you just that! This comfort food hot-spot will keep you full and happy all day long!

Really like the Buffett here! Great salads, tea and assorted buffet food. I like the fried fish and chicken fried steak along with the veggies! A good choice for lunch! - Kelly H.

Ridiculous amazing. If you're a gravy fan, definitely need to be here. - Amanda W.

My grandmother was an old fashioned country lady and everything in her kitchen was home cooked from scratch.  As a kid we often had things at her dinner table such as Green Beans, Chicken Fried Steak, Fried Okra, Fried Catfish.....you get the point....true south Texas comfort food.  Southern charm is the best place in Nueces county that will make you feel like your visiting grandma for lunch. - Richard W.


Portis Kountry Kitchen

615 N. Upper Broadway # B

Portis Kountry Kitchen is a Corpus Christi hidden gem. While it may not be in plain sight for incoming Corpus Christi visitors, this diner's food will surely have you forever knowing where to get the best tasting meals!

This place is Corpus' best kept little secret.   It's located in the basement of the Wells Fargo building.   The food is to die for.  Home cooked, soul food.  I've tried the fried chicken, breaded fried pork chop, chicken and dumplings, enchiladas, mashed potatoes, vegetables, gravy.   All I can say is FANTASTIC!!  -Sonia R.

Andy's Country Kitchen is a favorite for Corpus Christi residents! The signature biscuits and amazing food will have you always wanting more. The reviews speak for themselves.

So so yummy!!!  The muffins, biscuits and desserts are divine!  Breakfast was delicious and a very large portion.  In my opinion, one of the best home cookin' places in Corpus  Christi -Holly M.

This place is legit. The service for one, and oh my goodness the food! No matter what you're coming for, breakfast or lunch, you'll leave very happy and very full. Pretty sure we'll keep coming here as often as we can during our stay in Corpus. - Suzanne W.


Prices Chef

Prices Chef

Prices Chef

1800 S. Alameda St.

A Corpus Christi staple, Price's Chef always stays on top of its game with giant portions and amazingly friendly staff! Check the board for the daily special. If you're going for breakfast, we recommend the Price's Breakfast. It's everything you would want in a meal.

We were referred here by our hotel, the V! Breakfast was excellent and the warm tea hit the spot. Best grits I've had in a long time. This is a place I'd revisit and recommend to my friends. Thank you - Kenny B.

Price's Chef is a local institution and has been here for a very long time.  It's a "greasy spoon" by every possible measure and, if you didn't know the date, you'd think you were stepping into the 1970's.  It's a real trip.  The walls are lined with celebrity photos signed by folks who came and ate there at one point or another.  The building is old and dated but it's clean and well-kept and the service is always friendly.  Many of the staff have worked here for a long time and the faces are familiar. - Brian D.
