Hubby had one of the specials, which was a HUGE serving of lasagna and a nice, large side salad. The lasagna has I believe ground beef and sausage in it, so it isn't for vegetarians. The salad wasn't your average, out of the bag type. It had onions, green peppers and tomatoes, besudes the lettuce. His lunch was $7.25, very... More

Great breakfast with a local touch. We had a nice big breakfast, the place is family owned and very popular. Busy so service can take some time but well worth the wait

Was in town and did my usual look on TripAdvisor for a good, local, breakfast spot. This came up so we headed over. I wasn't disappointed. I had an omelette, home fries and toast. I was a member of the "clean plate club", and it was great. I always like these small, family run, places where it feel like the... More

Great little Greek restaurant-family owned and operated. Friendly service. Shirley is a excellent waitress. Great diner food. Large portions. Many college students and emergency services providers stopping in. After a couple visits you feel like family. The price is so reasonable. You will find yourself coming back again and again.

Their brand slogan says it all, this place definitely over feeds and the price is very comparable. Less than 10 bucks can feed two. This place has good service but be careful this place is cash only. I definitely can't wait to go again!

We decided to try this diner for breakfast based on prior reviews. There were many chain options in the area but we are very happy we chose Chris' Diner. We found seating right away (seat yourself) and service was prompt & friendly. The food was served hot and the portions were large. We went on a Sunday so breakfast was... More

This is the original, old-school style breakfast restaurant (now in their 20th year). Small and cozy, with a bar featuring old timers, where everyone knows everyone. Decent food and great prices. And real butter.

Went for Sunday brunch while travelling through Binghamton. It was an excellent find. The eggs, pancakes, hash, bacon and potatoes were excellent. The portions were huge, and the prices were unbelievably reasonable.

Thank Steve I
