Small but great.

I ate here twice and each time was very good. The staff are friendly, efficient and the food was nice. Nothing beats small local diners. If I wee to open one in Bangkok, it would be modeled after Chris'.

This excellently priced breakfast nook might be a smidgen difficult to park at but fear not! Pancakes await indoors. Fresh and hot off the griddle delivered with a genuine smile in a reasonable amount of a time, your tummy will not have a moment to grumble. Large mugs of decent java advertise local business and pictures of the owners homeland... More

I ate here with my family (party of 9) for lunch on a Friday. A gentleman sitting at the table next to ours said he comes here every Friday for the fried haddock and mac&cheese special. Two of us got that and we LOVED it. The haddock was fresh, thick, soft, and not fishy; it was fried very nicely. We... More

Outstanding Sunday breakfast. We sat at the counter and watched the cook work magic on the griddle. What a show! He works the home fries down the back of the griddle. Pancakes are huge. Bacon thin and crispy. 3-egg omelettes are delicious. All breakfasts cooked to perfection. Come hungry!

Good food, AMAZING prices and friendly service. For breakfast lunch or diner, Chris's Diner should DEFINETELY be considered. I personally suggest their breakfast which is served all day and is cheap but so good.

The food is good and plentiful, but not overwhelmingly huge portions. Nice variety and a good place to get lunch without waiting forever for service.

This diner is by far the best in the Southern Tier. It is definetly one of a kind. You can't find a place like this in Binghamton. Great for Breakfast and lunch and ..........CHEAP! Blows the other diners in our area out of the water.

This dinner is THE place for a good breakfast. The restaurant is clean and tidy. Service is great. They are prepared for a big crowd on weekends. Parking is off street. We tried omelets, toast, home fries, biscuits, scrambled eggs, pancakes, ham, juice and coffee. Huge portions. We eat there every time we're in Binghamton.

When in Binghamton go here! This diner is just what you are looking for in the am. Nice and warm, populated by locals, and the aroma of GREAT breakfast! All the food was outstanding, we went two mornings in a row. If you are lucky Sherry will be your server; so not only was the food great but you will... More

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.
