Three enjoyable breakfasts

Stayed in Tarrytown for three nights at the Sheraton Tarrytown. Not wanting to pay the high prices at the hotel restaurant, I asked if there was a good old fashioned New York Diner nearby. The recommendation, The El Dorado. Despite the so-so comments here on Tripadvisor, I found the El Dorado to... read more

This diner was convenient to our hotel located across the street. We stopped in for sandwiches and drinks. The server was okay. Food okay for a diner.

The El Dorado Diner is definitely one of the better diners in the area. Very close and easy parking. Its very close to the 87 and the 287 and the hotels nearby. The food was very good good but not spectacular. The prices are good and the service was quick. Im definitely returning.

The menu was large but don't be fooled, size doesn't always matter. I had a chicken salad sandwich which was lacking any taste and was not delivered as requested. The tuna salad was dark tuna loaded with mayo. The french fried were not real sliced potatoes but rather the kind where the potatoes are all pureed and then pressed into... More

My husband and I used to eat here when he lived in White Plains in 2004. It was our go to place. The food was soo good and when my sisters would come visit we would always go because they fell in love with it too. That being said it is just not like it was back then. The service... More

Regular dinner fare delivered with minimal flair. They are open 24hrs and was a god-send after a long trip.

The coffee served was fresh and hot, the waiting staff friendly and not pushing, they answered what the meal was about, actually one waiter knew the ingredients, how it was prepared. We had fried fish, very tasty and not greasy as you get in other places. We had time, even costumers came after and went before us, we just sat... More

This is the best diner in the area with superb friendly people working here. It's right next to Extended Stay America in Elmsford and they always deliver food to the hotel. The diner is off major highways, 87 and 287.

Stopped by for lunch with a few co workers and we were seated right away and the service was good. Very good diner food but if you want space ask for a table since the booths are very tight. The Executive diner is the better choice of the two.
