Good food

Went here with my husband for dinner on our way to a lay in Newtown. It was mid afternoon so it wasn't too crowded. I had the Bacon Cheese Burger, medium rare w/ waffle fries. Burger was as expected...thin, but was cooked as ordered. (I hate burgers that are overcooked hockey pucks). Husbands Pot... read more

We love going to diners anytime we can. They are fast but are not fast food. They take pride in having a diverse menu, consistency with freshly prepared tasty specials and large portions sizes. The value and fun of diners is appreciated by all. Unfortunately, they seem to have lost their pride of getting the basics right and maybe lost... More

Large portions, reasonably priced, great service and clean clean clean. Great location just off Exit 10 - I-84. We live local and eat here once a week. Typical diner quality food. Good bang for the buck.

We love to stop here for "coffee and dessert". Their Napoleons and NY cheesecake are amazing. There are so many desserts to choose from but these are our favorites. We often buy whole cheesecakes for when we have company. The cheesecakes are as good as any you would find in NYC. The prices are great for the quality. Looking for... More

The diner was a true surprise. We saw a sign that stated easy on easy off the highway, so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. I had a farmers omelet that had fresh veggies and a great tasting ham and bacon. My husband had the french toast. It was perfectly done and delicious. They also... More

Food was good, you can see why it's so busy here. The portions are huge. They make excellent clam chowdah. Also the iced coffee is great.

This is what a Diner should be. The food is excellent, the prices are very competitive and the location just off 84 is perfect. The portions are huge but well cooked. The omelette was not dry at all and well loaded. If you are near Newtown CTand enjoy Diners This is the place

We stopped for lunch as we were passing through on I-84. The service was excellent and our lunch time Challah bread French toast was mouth watering. The food was well prepared, hot and the presentation great. Fast and efficient. We were back on the road to our destination in less than an hour. Highly recommended. Huge menu, clean and friendly....

Huge menu, huge portions, conveniently located right off Route 84. Food is ok. Very friendly, accommodating waitstaff. Ridiculously reasonable prices. You cannot leave this place hungry - impossible.
