The El Dorado Diner is one of those old school diners that you can find scattered around the landscape of New York and New Jersey if you’re looking for the tell-tale chrome. We’ve got it marked in GPS for a bite on our way back from upstate. It’s come in handy more than once when we’ve been desperate for sustenance... More

This was our first time in this diner. Friendly staff. A good basic diner with a wide range of food but nothing memorable. I had the El Dorado special which was ok. The omelettes looked good.

I love diners. I used to go to El Dorado pretty often for breakfast and lunch. Food is always predictable. I think it's not as good as it used to be. Quality is off. Service is off. Just not as good, doesn't have the same good vibe.

I'm not terribly well versed in the expiration of pastries, but I'm sure it takes more than a few days for a cinnamon roll to form large mold patches. Best thing is? They keep the fresh and the moldy rolls piled up in the same tray. We got our money back and they made sure we were gone quick and... More

This place has a nice looking website and it looked inviting, but it was grimey inside and everything was very over priced for a diner. The food was not good and the staff was horrible! Our waitress slammed everything on the table... My food was supposed to come with soup, she never asked what kind I wanted and I never... More

One of two Eldorado diners in the area that has a large selection menu with daily specials and decent prices. The food is pretty good and usually has a large crowd.

The ElDorado Diner is your typical diner and you will find typical diner fare. Expect nothing spectacular, but the food here is edible. If you 're just looking for a place without a long wait where you can get a quick bite and not lose your shirt, then this is the place for you. Some of the specials are actually... More

Food was fair. Sub par for diner food the salad was not fresh. Eggs were made to order 4 bucks for an espresso that was instant coffee was ridiculous. Stopper here for convenience on saw mill pkwy. Won't be stopping again.
