We went to the diner yesterday and while we were eating my colleague who ordered the avocado quesadilla found a hair that was white and so long it looked as if a sasquach must be the chef and a 15 inch hair made its way into the quesadilla. Then as my boss was eating his greek salad with shrimp he... More

We hadn't been here in years as we regularly go elsewhere but were in a hurry and had been seeing all the "under new ownership" ads in all the local publications. So, upon entry it pretty much looked the same minus all the Kitschy stuff that used to be in the lobby giving it a "cleaner" feel. Someone new did... More

There were a lot of food options at this diner. We had several menus with multiple specials. Large portions at a decent price. No one from our dinner party left hungry.

We had the "after funeral gathering" at the Paradise Diner. I worked with Mina, who was wonderful, and all was even better than I could have hoped! They are caring and attentve, and I would highly recommend to everyone.

Stopped here for a Sunday dinner. It was very quiet, but clean and the waitress was friendly. Dinner special came with a drink, salad, and full dessert. My wife had a fish and chips and I had chicken continental. The food seemed fresh, tasted good, and the portions were very generous (got takeout boxes). Would definitely eat here again.

I was staying at the Holiday Inn Express and they told me this place delivered. So I called them up and placed an order. I was pleasantly surprised that they delivered drinks as well as the food. They also took credit cards over the phone. I ordered the chicken, avocado quesadilla and the french fries w/American cheese. Both choices were... More
