Throwback diner

I felt like transported back in time. Diners like this have pretty much disappeared from the Boston Metrowest area I'm from. Neon decor, turquoise seat cushions, (digital) jukeboxes. A long menu of average food. Had the "Louisiana Panini". Was supposed to be chicken with cajun sauce but was as... read more

My wife and I came in around 7:30 for dinner. We were seated by the manager almost immediately and offered menus. We ordered roast chicken with stuffing. The dinner came with salad bar, soup, entree' with 2 veggies and dessert. The soup was a delicious beef vegetable soup. The salad bar was ok; but my wife did not partake. The... More

The Acropolis Diner offers excellent value for good, "home cooked" type food. We went there for an evening meal and also for breakfast. My husband and I both ordered the "petit" prime rib special. It was $12.99 and included soup, salad bar, a large prime rib (perfectly prepared to medium rare), potato and vegetables. As is often true in American... More

One of our go-to diners in the area where we live. Huge menu selection. We've always had good food with extra to take home as the portions are ample. Flavor is above average and I've never really been disappointed whether I had seafood, chicken, pasta, turkey, full dinner with salad bar, or a sandwich and soup. Wait staff knows their... More

I have been to the Acropolis on several occasions and have been happy with everything I have had. The service has always been great. There seem to be a lot of regular customers there which says a lot about the place.

The owner is an aggressive man who doesn't accept complaints. I substituted a side for another but got charged for both. When I brought it up to the manager he started off arguing aggressively and challenging me if I know the prices. The environment is tacky, and tables are sticky and gross. If you want cheap food for not so... More

My dinner companion chose this dinner over one that she felt was overpriced. She chose a booth near the salad bar. Unfortunately I am stout and the space between the seat and the table was a tight fit. My dinner companion found the salad bar very attractive but I was disappointed in the tiny size of the salad shrimp and... More
