In the middle of a long road trip, a diner seems like manna from heaven. It’s exactly what you need to fill you up for the long trip ahead, and the price is right and the portions are big. But not all diners are created equal – and that’s definitely the case for Morg’s, a humble diner just off Highway 63 in Waterloo. The prices are right and the menu is extensive, but the food is uncommonly delicious. If you’re there for breakfast, you’ll be greeted with what just might be the largest pancakes in Iowa, alongside a full breakfast menu. At lunch and dinner, the menu shifts to a collection of rich and authentic country specialties and blue-plate specials. No matter what you pick, you’ll be glad you bellied up to the counter at Morg’s.
