The Real Deal!

Original diner, a classic! The atmosphere, decor, wait-staff & food was all just what you'd expect from a blast from the past. Breakfast came fast, delicious, just what I ordered. Waitress was friendly but down to business, frequently checking on us for coffee refills or to clear plates. We... read more

The food at this diner is decent, it comes out fast, but that's because they want you to leave the moment that you are done. Forget about "coffee talk" and enjoying your guests. The waitresses are not pleasant, they throw the food at you, watch you finish it, and expect you to leave immediately so they can seat the next... More

Stopped here this morning after a medical appointment. Small clean diner-looks like old rail car. Seated and greeted promptly. Very good service and food. Priced well also for a main line area. Would definitely recommend and return.

This is your no nonsense, no frills, just classic American diner. Also featuring some of the regional specialties like the Taylor pork roll and scrapple. The Frazer diner is plain and simple and a good value.

If you are looking for friendly service and an establishment that appreciates your business DON'T COME HERE! The food is average. The owner is a real witch!

Have been going here for twenty five years. Whether you eat at a booth or a counter you will be satisfied with a great breakfast. Food comes out fast and is very reasonable. Usually go for Sunday brunch and it is obvious that this is a local's hangout. Love their home fries.

I recently stopped at this historic diner for something to eat. It had been many years since my last visit. The place was dark and dirty. Food was fair. Owner was a miserable grump who didn't seem to be remotely appreciative for my business. There are plenty of good eating establishments that make a descent meal and make me feel... More

We came for lunch having wondered about it for some time. It looks like a real old fashioned American diner...and we weren't disappointed! The food was home style, good eggs and what looked like home made cake on the counter. The staff were really friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back!

If you are ever near this diner near Media Pa. near Philadelphia stop in not only is the food great but it is a real step back in time. Some say its from 1929 but may be early 1930's an example of the old diners that spread across the country pre World War II. The waitresses will be anxious to... More

Local traffic, clean, good diner food, fast service, coffee good and never empty. Locals probably don't rate it online because they didn't find it online.
