This is the ultimate diner. So many menu choices you have a hard time picking what you want but every thing we have picked out has been delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the service is very fast and friendly. Everything a diner should be. For desert, they have a huge array of baked goodies and they are all... More

Was recommended by a local in Waterbury. The service was good and the food that my wife and I had was very good and the prices were reasonable. What you should expect from a good diner.

We stopped here on our way back from New Jersey. Easy on/off from Rt. 84. There is a very large parking lot, so there is plenty of room to park. We were quickly shown to a booth and water and coffee were served before we knew it. The menu is very extensive, great prices. We were there mid-morning on a... More

Love this place. Really good menu- there is everything you can imagine. Big portions and fairly priced. The challah bread and house salad dressing are among the best. The house dressing is a vinaigrette with feta. So fabulous. Staff is excellent. Owners appreciate your business and remember you. It's always busy- but it's a big place so there is always... More

This restaurant has a massive menu. A fairly large portion of it is devoted to Greek food. At a diner! Didn't sound good..... However, they are owned by a Greek family so that explains it. My wife had the Greek salad and, while it was Americanized, it was very good - fresh ingredients, lots of them and actual feta. Not... More

This diner is huge and the menu is even larger! Service is quick and efficient, meals come out in record time. The baked goods and pastries abound. Easy on and easy off route 84 exit 10.

This restaurant is not the place to go if you want good service. The staff is very rude. I have been here several times and was greeted by eye rolling and indifference. The food is fair. They count on highway business, so apparently don't care if you come back.

Stunning finger decor, right off the bat. Very quick service, even Saturday nite during the rush. Menu choices are immense, and our food (spinach pie dinner, gyro payee, and pancakes) were excellent. Always a great meal, and great prices.
