Not So Happy About Lester's

Lester's is an institution. I like the atmosphere, but not the worn out seats and the freezing cold, windy air-conditioning. I have to admit that the quality of the food is extremely variable. I like some of the soups a lot, though maybe less the matzo ball soup: the matzo balls are good, the... read more

The food here is fine. Good, solid diner food. The servers are very good also. The problem?? The place needs a face lift. The bathrooms (especially the one in the dining room) are really ugly. It's not a dirty place, just old and tired. This is not prime real estate either so I don't get the, IMO, high prices -... More

Went for breakfast after a disappointing visit to IHOP a few days earlier. What a wonderful change.

The food was prepared to perfection and delicious.... More

This the second time our car club met at Lester's. The service is great considering that we all get separate checks. I recommend the Lester burger.

They do an ok job here at this diner. It is more convenient than anything else. They have breakfast specials. Nothing is amazingly delicious, but they are adequate.

Good breakfast and a steady flow of coffee! The hash browns were nice and crispy as ordered. The diner has a home feel to it, and I would go back.
