In 1935, the original Tastee Diner served customers at its Wisconsin Avenue location. The dining car consisted of six booths and counter stools and was owned by Mr. Eddie Warner. In 1958, its second owner, Mr. Carver, moved the restaurant to its present site on Woodmont Avenue.

Gene Wilkes bought the diner in 1970, expanded the restaurant in 1979 to offer 80 seats, and currently operates the Bethesda and Silver Spring diners.
