This may be the best veggie burger in town. So amazing, the tomatoes were divine, added grilled onions, and comes with avocado. Great service. Cash only restaurant.

Amazing food - simple dishes with quality ingredients. We arrived early for Sunday morning brunch and got a great seat by the window, making people watching a perfect addition to our meal. Highly recommended!

Got off the subway early on the way to The Guggenhiem for a proper American breakfast. It was definitely worth it. Two of us had French toast - a big plate of brioche toast with toppings (I had banana and almonds - they certainly didn't scrimp on the topping) and a bottle of warm maple syrup. Big glasses of fruit... More

Good authentic. Don't take credit cards. Happy to keep you on the door until your full party arrives, so they know they're popular. But friendly and the food is genuine American diner fare. Really enjoyed it.

We went there for Sunday Brunch on a recommendation. Busy as you'd expect. The staff got us seated within 5 minutes. The food was terrific. Big portions. Mimosas. Good coffee. Very prompt and efficient service. Very good value. Handy location.

Went here as a quick stop for some lunch and were very disappointed. Not only were the burgers dry and tasteless but you had to pay extra for fries - 15 bucks for a burger at a self proclaimed 'diner'? Secondly no where when entering the diner or on the wall does it state that it is a cash only... More

My partner and I were excited to eat here for breakfast on the recommendation from Eyewitness Travel. However, the food was very sub standard. In particularly was the over cooked, limp and barely warm potatoes. When we noticed these were from a large pile lumped in the back corner of the fry pan, we weren't so surprised. In fact, not...

this is one of our first stops during our annual return to NYC. It never disappoints! French toast, omelets, burgers, sandwiches, salads, milk shakes... Always busy and always worth the wait. If you have never had an American Diner experience, EJ's is a must.

Ecah time the place/restaurant was extremely busy (which its a great sign), but each time they sat us in a very timely manner. The service is quick, and the food is 1st class. Both time we had breakfast type... More

A Classic New York Diner, we had a great New York brunch. Fresh tasty juice that was straight from the tree! Service was friendly, polite and very quick. Great to have the free coffee refills which considering how good the coffee is was a great bonus. Worth the trip up to 73rd and 3rd, so make it one you don't... More
