This place is one of my personal favorites. You can indulge here at reasonable prices. Their servings are huge! Great place to enjoy lots of food with family and friends. I love the ambiance..perfect for muching away! Like what they say in other reviews: go here hungry- take that seriously.

Go there very hungry - I'm not kidding. The portions are big, some might say huge but if you walk in with the right appetite you'll find it just right. if you go for breakfast order anything that comes with the potatoes. I highly recommend their Texas pork steak. It is legen (wait for it) dary.
For lunch they serve an awesome burger served on 10 inch roll. Burgers are served with steak fries and all the trimmings.
Lastly, there steak dinner is un-freakin-believable. Try ""George's special"" if you feel especially piggy. Again, portions are generous. The coulette steak is smothered with mushrooms and gravy served with smooth mash potatoes and a side a veggies. Seriously, the steak is done as good as any high-brow steak house in Palo Alto, San Francisco, or wherever. Best of all the prices can't be beat for the quality and quantity served up at The Country way.
I grew up in Fremont/Newark California and let's just say there are two staples when it comes to these two small towns...Dino's Diner and COUNTRY WAY. Growing up I always got their french toast platter...which is TO DIE FOR!! But as I got older my taste buds developed a liking for the Linguisa Sandwich and the Linguisa Omellette. There is no place like this anywhere. And I now live in lowly idaho where I have never even seen the likes of Linguisa on any menu...so if you are in the area don't take this place for granted...it's the best home-style cooking you'll ever have and the old home-e feel is the best in the world....

I was introduced to Country Way after a good night of partying. They are on spot with theyre coffee..My mug has never been half empty. The food is great way to soak up all the junk you drank the night before. Thier country potatoes are great when theyre slightly crunchy on the outside, but I adore them either way. Thier breakfast portions are large and I hardly ever finish a whole meal. Their steaks are pretty good for the price. The only downside is the long wait, which I tolerate because I love this place. Parking is also an issue, but I suggest to park on the street behind the restaurant. Oh..and come in on Sundays for thier Chicken Rice soup..YUMMMM

Better than the typical fast food restaurant but not as cheap as it used to be. Even a simple early bird special will run you over $10 w/drink/tax/tip. Family style restaurant so if you are looking for a quiet place to eat then look somewhere else. Vegies are so-so. Ditto for mash potatoes. Free refills on huge glasses of soft drinks. Fast service.

Been coming here for breakfasts for 20 years now. Huge portions with quality not sacrificed. Great potatoes, amazing omelets, although not as cheap as they used to be. Still more than worth it. Expect a wait Sunday mornings. Hope it never changes. Dinner plates are ok, though the mashed potatoes are powdered and the vegetables frozen. Whatever. I come here for breakfast. If only San Francisco had a Country Way.

I've passed by the Country way a couple of times and I finally decided to try it. I went to the Country Way and ordered the steak and eggs. The steak was huge and covered half of my plate the other half was stacked with eggs and hash browns. I couldn't finish the plate, I had to take my steak home to eat for dinner. The prices were very reasonable compared to the amount of food that I was given. The staff was good and the coffee kept coming. I highly reccomend this place for breakfast.

Very Good Diner. The prices are competitive. The food is good. The portions are hefty. The coffee is good. The staff are quite busy, although they can be friedly when there isn't a mad rush. The wait can be 10 minutes.
Country Way still doesn't beat the Country Inn diner in Cupertino.
