Always Reliable

Local Binghamton favorite. Always good food, good service, and good atmosphere. Most of the local police occupy the place at breakfast time....leading one to believe it might be a substation. The owners' daughter, Lousia, is an absolute beauty....Greek Goddess. ...literally.

Actually, I did. Came all the way from Syracuse just to have lunch here. Typical diner fare, generous portions and very fair prices, cramped and cozy, mostly comfort food, so don't expect anything beyond tummy pleasing food. Excellent value for what you pay and get. Been here a few times, definitely on the agenda on my next trip to Binghamton.

Went in a Friday morning and it was pretty busy. Quite difficult to carry on a conversation because the table behind us was extremely loud, older group of people maybe they were hard of hearing. Food was decent, meal came with coffee but can't have caffeine and they wouldn't substitute juice, which was crappy. They don't take debit/credit cards so... More

My retired buddies and I have breakfast here nearly every Friday. The food is very good, the prices and portions are more than fair and the service is excellent. We often have to request that they not be so generous with the food. We just cannot eat that much food in one sitting!

Was in town visiting my 90 year old father, who eats at the diner all of the time. Not only was the food great, with huge portions, but people that work there are awesome!! A must place to eat.

Big portions, friendly staff and a great overall experience. Under order - the portions are large. The blueberry pancakes were big and fluffy. Good coffee.

As diners go..Chris' is as nice as they get. Cozy seating, clean, good service with tasty meals. Located in the emerging art district on State St in Binghamton, don't hesitate to stop in.

My sister says the best diner to choose is where the police eat. Well, this is the place. It's a diner. Seat yourself. Not only are portions good-sized and some of the choices surprisingly good (like the greek omelet), but you can order half portions of sides. The service is usually prompt and friendly. I've only been there for breakfast.

Picked this place based on good trip advisor ratings. Great breakfast for a great price. The palace was packed on a Friday morning.

This diner is a little known gem in downtown Binghamton, New York. Small and unobtrusive, yet big on good food and great prices. There's no fancy bldg. and no big neon signs to help you find Chris' diner. But well worth the search because you really do get plenty of good food at a great price. They run specials everyday...
