This little diner is a true hole-in-the-wall in a rough part of Binghamton. The food was standard eggs and home fries, serving good coffee. The place needs a good revamp though and the service is not too attentive, but it was fine.

Wow! What a great place to have breakfast! Omelettes, home fries, and Belgium waffles were all so good. The wait staff was very friendly and professional! Sunday is all day breakfast which is such a great idea! All of the food was hot and the flavor wonderful! My husband highly recommends the Greek Omelette. Cash only so be prepared!!! Enjoy

On a recommendation of a local person, we checked out Chris's Diner. Great little family run business. We were made to feel right at home. The omelettes were perfect! I would definitely return!

We were there for Breakfast and it was hopping. The place had people waiting in line outside. Never had a three egg breakfast as a diner standard before, certainly got plenty of food and hardly feel the wallet go lighter.

We went to this restaurant because of Trip Advisor reviews. It is all right .Nothing special. The french toast was OK. I gave 3 stars because my husband's chicken had to be returned .It was 2 slices of chicken that look anemic, like they were several days old. A non appetazing white color. He ordered instead Fried Calamari. He ate... More

When out and about, I wanted a quick place to stop to get something to eat. I love diners, and this one was no exception. The breakfast food was great, the staff was very kind and welcoming. Great experience.

Place doesn't look like much from the outside but inside the food is good and usually the place is packed with people.

Yeah, It's been was February since last doing a working lunch at Chris's Diner. So, Friday Oct 21st was the day. We have a late lunch and therefore can linger and do our planning and designing and not be rushed out or feel we must clear the table. My lunch partner likes the idea of breakfast anytime and at 1PM... More

We ate there every morning for a week. We could have stayed longer but our travel time was over. And when I say we ate there every morning than you know it was good. May locals we saw there and we felt like one of them. Keep the home style going and we will be back gain.
