This "restaurant" could be called a supermarket. Everything we were served was either from frozen food bags, or cans. Four of us ate there for dinner & this is the breakdown: spaghetti sauce from a can, peas from a can, chicken salad from who knows where, ,but it was definitely NOT homemade, french fries from a bag of Ore Ida.

The gyros are among the best in the area. The meals come with soup and fries or fruit, so they are a good value. The Greek food is good. Our main complaint is everything else is only so-so

Paragon is a good diner. Service is usually good, food is usually good. They aren't always super consistent, but I keep going back. It's a place that you'll feel comfortable and get traditional diner experience.

I only ate here once, but the food was fresh and cooked perfectly! I had salmon and brocolli with homemade bread and soup. My husband's food was perfect, too. We will definately eat here more often!
