So-So Diner

There's something a little downscale about this diner. It's unfair to review diners, since they all offer similar short-order food, but it seems they just try to get by here. Service is perfunctory, not as friendly as you'd expect. The decor is on the baroque side, which I don't understand. Why do... read more

Service is acceptable. Owners on site are not at all friendly to regular customers. Does not appreciate loyalty. Food is fair and prices are moderate, but not great. Recent menu changes removed some breakfast specials; what's left is your usual offerings.

Since the renovation the prices have gone up, the menu has been slashed and the food isn't much better. It's not very good but the staff is friendly and attentive. If you are traveling in the area, it is relatively convenient to the highway and there is enough variety for most individuals, as diners typically are. If your expectations aren't... More

My husband and I are new to the Orange county area. After a terrible visit to Chester and Goshen diners, we have now made this our breakfast / lunch spot when we are on the run even though we live in Chester and not Monroe. It is a little out of the way but the food is good, service is... More

As with most diners I would recommend sticking to the burgers and the eggs...The dinners are cheap quality food. It is expensive for breakfast. I think we paid about $8.00 for bacon and eggs. Burgers are good as are their fries.

Family and I had dinner at Monroe Diner this evening. Quality of food was very poor quality and poor value. At $14.99. fish & chips was more like a kids meal with greasy low quality fish and a stingy portion of fries. Pull pork sliders were terrible- rolls were soggy and pork poor. Dressing on chicken caesar salad had heavy... More

The staff here are great, I couldn't decide between the desserts in their cabinet so was recommended the strawberry shortcake by the manager. We ate here a few times over the summer and the milkshakes and desserts (available for take out) are the reason I keep going back!
