So much food and variety for such a good price

We ate at this diner three times during our stay nearby. It was amazing to look at all the items on the menu. What was even more amazing was to order a variety of items at our table and have them all come out hot, good tasting, and reasonably priced. The wait staff did a very good job. Even... read more

I came here twice in a span of 2 days while staying at a local hotel nearby. Since I'm from Jersey, diners are kind of our thing. I will say, this diner was cozy and had a nice clean and easy to read menu. (Even had Taylor Ham!) First time, came here for dinner and I ordered a coffee and... More

They raised the prices..My favorite omelette now almost cost $10. Add coffee, tax and you are over $12. I usually tip 25 to 30% under $10 because the service is usually very good here but now I guess I should only tip 15% or go to another restaurant...The new guy thats at the register sometimes isn't very friendly sometimes..You can...

6 of us went there for lunch and we all had specials. Everyone's soup was very good although the matza ball soup was very salty. Seafood bisque was delicious. Portions are a decent size and a side was included as was the soup. Service was very good this time.

The Acropolis makes you feel like you have stepped into the set of the movie, "Diner." It is really a throwback... a large, Greek diner with a huge menu. Paninis were GREAT, as were the sweet potato and the waffle fries. Dessert looked wonderful but was a little disappointing... it didn't live up to expectations. The cream on the Boston... More

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 bland as can be. I even put salt on it to... More

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
