Eating out with a toddler is difficult. It certainly isn’t a relaxing experience. When I’m feeling brave, one of my favorite restaurants in Columbus is the Starliner Diner

The Starliner Diner staff are very accommodating for folks with kids. The restaurant has a kid-friendly menu with a wide selection – everything from burritos to pasta – and an eclectic atmosphere with murals painted on the walls that gives the kids something to look at while eating. 

The food is always outstanding. My favorites are the Cheese and Jalapeno Soup and the Sweet Potato and Corn tamales. The Vegetable Caliente Pasta and BBQ Chicken Pizza are also excellent. In fact, everything I’ve ever had there is great. The prices are also good. Lunch and dinner items range in price from $5.25 to $10.25.

My daughter’s favorite meal there is the Black Beans and Rice (its not actually a meal, but a combination of two side dishes.) They do have a kids menu, but she has never ordered from it. She loves beans! The kids meals are reasonable priced from $3.25 to $4.25.

Their breakfast menu is also excellent. My breakfast recommendation is the Farmers Omelette. Get the Cuban bread for toast – it’s very good. Come early on Saturdays and Sundays, or be prepared for a bit of a wait. However, the wait is worth it.
