Fantastic Place for a 6am breakfast. the food is excellent and the service is top notch. also, if you go at 6:30 the place is empty except for the groups of police, fire and EMS Personnel there having breakfast. The Makris Diner also has polish food if you need to satisfy your craving for polish food.

We try to support family owned restaurants. Some are excellent, some so so and then there's just plain awful. My husband ordered a simple scrambled eggs, sausage and pancake breakfast. The sausage was deep fried, eggs over cooked and the pancakes were like rubber. My potato pancakes were equally bad. Black, greasy, inedible. Waste of time and money.

I like their breakfast. Omelets always good and a good variety of different breakfast combinations. A bit pricey but still a good value considering the price of eggs. Love the nostalgic atmosphere with old time table side jukes.

Placed my breakfast order for a cheese omelette and corned beef hash. Home fries were fine, omelette was fine but toast was burned and hash was over-cooked beyond recognition. I identified one of the owners and presented my inedible side of hash. Her response was to ask if I had asked for the charge to be removed from my check.... More

We placed our order at 10am on a Saturday morning and then waited 40 minutes for average food. There weren't that many people there. It should have been served within 10-15 minutes tops at any other diner. Coffee refills (3 of them prior to food deliver) were quick.... Food is a bit pricey. I paid $3.50 for one pancake... And...

I have been coming here for many years, and always enjoyed a good breakfast, or lunch, with hearty portions. Lately though, it seems like they are skimping out on the sides they serve with the courses. Like the homefries. Even when you ask for a larger portion of homefries, you still get barely more than one scoop. Of course, they... More

If you like Polish ethnic food this is the place for you. Their breakfast pancakes are great too. Found the diner on Google. Wanted to find something different didnt expect to find such a friendly atmosphere.

After discovering that we had a 90 minute wait at the only other pancake place that was nearby, we decided to leave there and headed up to Makri's where we found friendly service, good food and no wait. Our server was great and we were treated like family. We had five adults and needed a booster chair for a ten-month... More
