About The Diner

Nostalgic atmosphere & delicious dishes

The Diner is the latest in a long tradition of chili parlors and diners that have been operating continuously in our Main Street building for over 100 years. Owner Bonnie Amspacher is the fourth generation of a Norman family famous for its chili and great down-home Tex-Mex cooking. Her great-grandfather moved the Amspacher family to Norman, Oklahoma, during the Great Depression and opened the Southside Grocery, fondly remembered today by many Normanites. In 1989, Bonnie’s father Mark opened The Diner, featuring the award-winning chili in many dishes that The Diner carries on today.
