Stopped at the Queen City Diner on way to a weekend wedding, The diner was clean and inviting, It was filled both times we stopped there..The food was good mbut not oudtanding. We had simple dishes for lunch each time. This a good spot for a quick filling meal.

If you want a deli sandwhich, there are better choices - Panera, Jimmy Johns, etc... They're food is ok and priced competitively, but there's nothing that sets them apart or on a par with these other places. If you don't have time or inclination to travel a bit farther, the food here will be good enough.

Small area in need of an update. Food marginal. Service good. Didn't live up to our expectations from other reviews.

While in Allentown for a week recently visiting family, we ate at the Queens City Diner every day. Sometimes twice a day. This place is a solid reliable diner, with all that you would expect: Large menu, great staff and clean as well. It's a classic.

Funny how you can live in a city for years, drive right by some places and never thought of stopping in until you read some local reviews and say "hey, what have I been missing". My exact situation yesterday evening when my wife and I decided to stop by the diner to 'check it out'. What we found was a... More

Retro 1950's style diner. Excellent food, specialty drinks from days gone by. If you want an authentic dining car experience, this is the place. Our whole experience was excellent.

Every weekend when my guys work I buy everybody breakfast. I always call it in and they always get it right. I receive the breakfast hot and fresh. I never had a bad experience there.
