Neighborhood gem for sure. Nothing fancy, but food is fresh and home-cooked. Menu varies from burgers to pierogies, gyros to pizza and some other local favorites as well. Clean place, good service and very reasonably priced. Good place to take the kids.

Very cute place. Love the atmposhere. Went during lunch and wasn't to over crowded. My husband got the Diner burger and it was huge. The meat was juicy and thick. I got the Diner melt and it was full of flavor and the bun was to a perfect buttery crisp. Best part, we got a small sample bowl of the... More

I was confused when I walked in. It was not how I remembered it to be - this restaurant used to be open and inviting with a unique decor. There seemed to be two distinct sides of the restaurant, however we waited to be seated for a while even though we heard workers talking. I was surprised that incoming customers... More

This place serves all the staples burgers, meatloaf, etc. There milkshakes are the best thing on the menu. The food is always served fast and the staff is great. My young kids love this place.

This is a family owned restaurant that takes pride in everything they make and it shows!! Soups sandwiches, dinners. The lunch specials are a great deal. The pizzas are awesome. (try the rollover for 1 person) They make the best chicken paprikash since my Grandmas!! The dumplings are freshly made every morning. And to top off the experience- ICE CREAM!!... More

Sal and Al's is a bit of a disappointment; the atmosphere is nice, service is great, but the food is just so-so. The soup can be great one day and average at best the next. The sandwiches are mediocre. The fries are greasy and sometimes mushy. None of the food has a lot of flavor, except for salt and/or garlic.... More

Friend give me the recommendation to stop in since I was visiting the amazing kiedrowski's bakery right next door. I had the kids with me so wanted to make sure the menu would accomodate them. I rarely visit diners but this one was clean end friendly and the menu looked vast. I am a strict eater and wasn't sure if... More

They've an outstanding food selection. American to Lebanese/Greek(I think?). Regardless, the prices are good, the food is plentiful, tasty and fresh. I really do like the assortment of food and desserts. By all means, give it a try.

We went on a Saturday for lunch. My Route 66 had three, small, about one-inch slices of steak, more peppers than you could want, some onions, and two mushrooms, over what I would call Minute Rice with a Thousand Island based sauce? My husband ordered the Diner Burger. It had two patties with Texas toast as the bun. His sandwich... More
