“Great Old-Fashioned Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We had breakfast here and everything was very good. The home fries were actually excellent! No paper plates or cups, so I'm not sure why they used them in the past. We sat at the counter and experienced quick, friendly service.

“Great Greasy Spoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Had a great assortment for breakfast and the food was excellent, it didnt matter what you ordered, FYI drinks (coffee, juice, pop) were served in styrofoam cups, it didn't matter to us but it may matter to someone. We come to this place every time we stay in downtown Pittsburgh, this is our third time here.

“Best Value Breakfast/Lunch Spot in Pittsburgh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Hanlon's is one of my favorite places to eat in Pittsburgh due to its great food, friendly service and reasonable prices. It's a comfortable diner where you will get to know the staff and enjoy watching the cooks make your food fresh right in front of you. If you are in the 'burg, check it out.

“Great diner in downtown Pittsburgh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I was looking for a real American Diner and I found it! The staff is very friendly and they offer a variety of foods in small or larger portions.

“Great diner for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Small, great prices, very friendly waiters, excellent omelets, pan cakes, coffee. It is located 1/2 block from the Westin and is easy to miss with the small store front but well worth the hunt.
