“After a movie”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

24/7 is great, the catfish platter was great, service was slow, i saw a lot of chit-chatting among the waitresses, Dont even think about dessert here, the ice cream is cheap, i had the peach cobbler it was a congealed mess of goo that didnt even taste like peach and the peaches were hard and uncooked. this is more of a grab a burger or the special and go place, the breakfast platters looked good to.

“Happy Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

Very cool place to eat if you are looking for a quick bite with a good selection on the menu. The decor is pretty cool with 50's look and the staff were great.

“Great food 24 hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We were very late getting out of a play and needed dinner at almost midnight. 59 diner was buzzing! We had to wait about 5 minutes because it was completely full and it stayed that way until we left.

You can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner 24/7 and since it was going to be after midnight by the time we finished, breakfast was our order and it tasted great.

We saw the ice cream guy making a GIANT sundae with everything including the kitchen sink going into. It was truly super-sized. The server could hardly carry it and everyone in the restaurant turned their heads. So, if you are really craving ice cream, give it a try.

“Best Milkshakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

The food is good, but i really come here for dessert. I enjoy almost all of them but the mint oreo milkshake is my fave. They have good salads also. Prices are ok. Atmosphere is nice. Good place to take the kids.
