The food here is really good, and it's relatively cheap. If I want a quick, good meal, then I come to City Limits Diner. The pasta is great, and they serve breakfast at all times!

Not your grandfather's diner! A much fancier menu and higher prices than a classic diner. Really good food and service and an easy to get to location. Parking can be a problem but there is a muni lot across Central Avenue (Route 100) as well.

I go here almost 2 twice a month with my 2 year old son. The food is great, the wait times have been very minimal, and staff has always been great as well. Look to visit this place again after the holidays!

City Limits is not your average diner. It is more like a large restaurant in appearance, service and menu. It has a full service menu containing some very innovative dishes. Service has always been pleasant and efficient. The food is very good whether it is an egg salad sandwich or a salmon steak. The bakery is on a par with... More

Looks like a diner, feels like a diner, but the food is generally more interesting. The service is generally attentive, the food is quite good. It's a little more expensive then the neighborhood diner. My only negative is the noise. It's a very big, open space, and when it's crowded (as it usually is) you have to speak up.

I love their brunch menu. I am a big fan of their waffles. Also, their mimosas are delicious. The staff is friendly and professional. The prices are very reasonable.

I moved away from Westchester County a dozen years ago, and before that I often went to City Limits for lunch. A friend and I had lunch there in November, and it is still a fine place. We asked for a quiet table and were given a corner table in the back next to a window. It was perfect. We... More

We visit this diner perhaps 3 times a year. We have never been disappointed. The parking lot can get extremely crowded.

Most impressive is the attentive service and also the willingness to please. Also, we were not rushed and able to enjoy our conversation as well as our meal. We had salads and they were quite good. The menu was extensive so there are choices for every palate. The restaurant has a nice and subdued atmosphere. Another perk is their parking... More
