My previous review in January 2016 focused on the dire need for a renovation. Well... it was as if they read my review and called a meeting! The results are great. Nice and modern, clean, bright and stylish. The food is still good solid diner food. Now you feel good about sitting there eating it!

We visited for the first time today. The waitress approached us within seconds, was friendly and the food came pretty quick. We felt the prices were good and the food was great. Has an old time diner feel to it and is a huge place with several rooms.We will diffinately go back.

Lester's has a wide variety of choices from Greek style lamb shanks to chicken Parmesan to broiled liver, fish, and burgers. Portions are very generous, and I have always taken home enough for another dinner. Dinners come with salad, two sides, entree & dessert. Service is prompt and friendly, and it's a great place for a quick, inexpensive, tasty meal.

We go here pretty often for breakfast and it's always good and consistent. The staff is always friendly and smiling and the food is always good. They do offer a lunch and dinner and they're open until midnight but I usually come for breakfast only. They give you big portions and the prices are fair. And the diner was just... More

It was a step back in time to go and eat at this diner. The menu is a typical diner menu with large sandwiches and sides. The atmosphere was like a urban coffee shop with open dining rooms and old decorations. i compared it to the Lester's on Ste. Rd 84- Fort Lauderdale and the pace was slower and no... More

Went for breakfast with a friend. Totally redone interior. Great food, friendly and prompt service. Had the eggs, lox and onion. It was worth the visit.

Good for lunch and dinner. Exceptional for breakfast. Don't expect much atmosphere. But if you want a great breakfast on a budget, look no further. The locals pack this place but service is still good.
