I want to quit my job and just eat chicken and waffles at the Allston Diner. They are just so good. The waitstaff was also friendly.

This is the best brunch I've found in boston. It's not particularly easy to get too but definitely worth the trip. The home fries are delicious!

This place is amazing. I come here for the best chicken and waffles ever! This is my favorite place to eat every time I visit the area. The servers are always so nice as well and the retro look is very cool too.

Allston Diner always hits the spot. The biscuits and gravy are to die for. The hashes-- amazing. Even basic egg dishes and toast are done well. Come ready for coffee, because they will keep filling your cup! Very reasonable price. If you come early on the weekend, no problem, but if you come after 10 am, plan on a wait.

We tried to get in at 10:30 Saturday morning and the wait was 45 minutes. So we returned to this almost empty place in the Harvard University neighborhood on Sunday morning at 9am to find plenty of empty tables. It appears that this somewhat dumpy place is an attempt to replicate southern recipes for the palates of the Harvard elites... More

This place has amazing chicken and waffles and amazing everything else I've tried (I can't vouch for the vegan menu). My only complaint is that I usually leave feeling so stuffed that I can't move. My favorite dish is the chicken and cornbread waffle with a side of sausage gravy. I've also enjoyed the french toast and pancakes. The omelets... More

We ordered a Ruben with sweet potato fries & BBQ brisket with home fries. The food was delicious, juicy and plentiful. Diner also serves a good amount of vegan friendly dishes also the service was warm and friendly. Worth a stop if your in the area!

I tried this place out with a friend for brunch last weekend ... then went back the next day with a different friend. I had their pancakes, biscuits and gravy and their Chicken and Waffles. I've got to say, while everything was delicious, nothing beats the chicken and waffles. So well seasoned and the gravy is wonderful. What's great is... More
