A very great surprise!

The was a pleasant surprise. This had one for the largest selections on a menu that I've ever seen, pages and pages. I had a cup of the matzoh ball soup, which was not bad at all...quite tasty. I also had the patty melt which was delicious. My wife had the great chicken wrap which she enjoyed... read more

I ate here with my girlfriend during our move to the northeast, and it was a great experience. After driving all day, we were really hungry, and this place had a huge menu! We ordered a few things between us and shared, and it all tasted great and really hit the spot. The prices were all reasonable for diner food.... More

The food was good but what got to me is that all the waitresses were sitting and the end of the counter talking, I was the only one sitting at the counter. I was sitting there for ten minutes before I had to ask them to take my order.

Slow service, average food, depressing atmosphere. Clean restrooms. Pastry counter looked really good, but outrageous prices.

Our friends liked this diner for breakfast food so we went on a Friday evening at about 5:30. By the time we left, the place had almost no parking and every table full. The waitress was friendly and interactive with guests. She knew the menu well and what went together well. The food did not take too long to get... More

I know, I know, it's a diner. But it's a good diner. The food is consistent and the deserts are pretty damn good plus the service is fast and friendly. Bonus, they have a great loaf of Challah Bread for like $5 to take home. If you find yourself passing through on 84 and you're hungry, stop and you will... More

It is open 24 hours, has a huge menu with breakfast always an option. The food is good. The service was fast... More
