Actually food

Everyone there was really nice and the service was good. I was pleasantly surprised that they actually used real cheese on my omelet not Kraft singles slices and they food was cooked just right. The only thing that got them marks off was the fruit I ordered was a little was ripe.

Lots of food choices. Service is great, food is nothing exceptional but good clean food. Good for a group get together and not too loud so you can have an enjoyable conversation with your dinner companions.

Visited Nello's family restaurant twice so far (breakfast and lunch) with my significant other and our friends. Service was excellent on both occasions, waitresses were very friendly, efficient and well mannered. Food was great. Pancakes, bacon, sausages, omlettes, greek salad with grilled chicken... everything was fresh and tasted homemade. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual. Staff act as they genuinely... More

Good service plus reasonable price and a large menu equals a very good family restaurant. The parking lot is a little difficult but it is well worth the effort.

Since I teach at the nearby community college I go here for breakfast and sometimes dinner prior to evening classes I am partial to their breakfasts, their pancakes are wonderful reminding me of my mom's, and the wait staff are efficient, friendly and you always get a coffee refill. This is a wonderful place for families, friends, or just by... More

There's something to be said for someone who takes great pride in his profession. Dino, the owner, personally oversees the menu in this delightful family style restaurant. His homemade Greek Salad Dressing is simply the best I've ever had! Portions are enormous and the staff is friendly and quick. Can be quite crowded on weekend mornings however, but you'll be...

If you want a great casual dining place, this is the place to go. Staff is always friendly. Food is almost always home made there. Awesome Greek salads and spinach pie.

Food is good and inexpensive and the menu is all about home cooking. The service is friendly and efficient and they are organized to get people seated as quickly as possible. Sunday mornings are packed!

This is a great diner located just off Woodward. If you're craving some standard breakfast food or a quick sandwich then this is the place to go. I recently stopped in Nellos for dinner and was thoroughly surprised by their options, great menu. I decided on the spaghetti and it was great. Tons of flavor in their simple meat sauce.
