Meal for two only $20

Breakfast served all day! I've been stopping here for over 15 years when I travel to Syracuse and have yet to be disappointed by the food.

We went there for a breakfast meeting with a friend. The order was a simple breakfast the result was complicated. We waited at least 10 mins for coffee (anyone who knows when you go for breakfast you want coffee! That made our friendly conversation turn from "what is new" to why is it so slow. I had to ask the... More

After three hours on the road, it is nice to hit Longway's for real food, not drive-in , fast mass produced paper wrapped burgers. Here is home to many locals at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Military are often here any time of day enjoying the home cooking. Breakfast like you would fix at home without having to do the cleanup... More

if your looking for good home cookin, reasonable price and a hearty portion in the setting of a old fashioned diner you've found the spot. We stopped here on recommendations and can't believe we've missed this place. The fried chicken is the best we've had, crispy on the outside and juicy tasty on the inside. We stopped in the breakfast... More

I don't get the good reviews. I found this place to be pretty bad, food wise. Nothing tasted fresh or anywhere close to homemade. The mashed potatoes were from a box --- ewwww! The place had a dirty feel; maybe because of all the flies? Won't be back.

Stopped here for breakfast after staying the night in Calcium, and then heading over in to Canada, this diner was en-route just maybe 5 minutes if that from our hotel. It seemed to be a real 'locals' diner, not that I have any problems with that as they're usually cheap and tasty food. Unfortunately the cheap food was the only... More

Closer than you'd think to I81 longways offers up your standard diner fare at pretty standard prices. Great for a weekend morning breakfast or a place to stop by after crappy fast food during a long road trip.

I chose the steak and eggs, with english muffin, hash browns and coffee, mmmm, the best way to start off the day. The food was excellent, service was quick and attentive and I was even able to use their WIFI with a secure password. The whole meal with tip was $12. I'd go there for breakfast just about every day... More
