My Dog Duke’s Diner

A new restaurant opened in downtown Lynchburg in November.  Now that the initial “buzz” has waned a bit it was time to try this new culinary treat.

The diner is located in a restored and updated building located at 1007 Commerce Street, Lynchburg, VA.  Commerce Street is fast becoming a dining mecca!  Interior furnishings are reminiscent of an old-fashioned diner with a shiny counter and stools.  Exposed wooden beams and huge plate-glass windows add to the interesting feel of the diner.

Originally open for just breakfast and lunch the demanding patrons have pushed the diner to now serve dinner too.  Open seven days a week, between 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. the diner also serves brunch on Sundays between 7 a.m. until 2 p.m.

There are a variety of menus available, depending on the time of day you visit.  Breakfast is served daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.  There is a nice selection of breakfast sandwiches, platters and weekly specials.  You might like to try their fried chicken and waffles or their pastrami hash.  The lunch menu is also served daily and features specialty sandwiches, salads, soups and a few interesting entrees.  They offer a weekly soup and salad special.

My Dog Duke’s Diner is one of a few places downtown that serves breakfast.

Hungry for dinner?  Served daily between 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. you will be impressed with a small menu that hits all the right notes.  Choose from entrees such as meatloaf, lasagna, fried chicken or Sunday thru Thursday a “Blue Plate Special.”  Most of the specialty sandwiches, salads and soup and salad specials offered for lunch can be found on the dinner menu too.
