Inexpensive and good food..

I went once as I wanted fish fry on a Thursday (Rochester is known for Fish Fry only on Friday's) and to my surprise they had fish. I ordered broil fish with baked potato and coleslaw - was delicious. The fish fry was as good s the broiled one. Order to go for the kids. Since that time I... read more

Typical Greek owned diner with good, hearty, basic food. Reasonably priced as you might expect. Service can be a bit slow sometimes.

By average diner standards, this was an average diner! Dinner was filling, although a bit on the salty side. The turkey dinner was typical, yet not bad. Not expensive at all. Friendly staff. Fruit pie was delicious and HUGE (too much, actually...way too much whipped cream). Not sure we would make this a must-do restaurant, but not bad as a... More

This diner is probably the best I've been to. We've been here many times and will be back many more times. The food is really good and prices a very reasonable. The staff is very friendly and many times the second generation owner is there. It has a large menu so most everyone can find something they will like.

We went out of our way to go here. We've been here before and will continue to go out of our way to eat here. It's down home food at a real reasonable rate. We eat out a lot and hit many restaurants more than once. This is one place we never got a bad meal. The owner is a... More

We walked I to a nice clean Restraunt and sat down. The waitress was very prompt and cheerful. 2 if our group order the soup and it was good. Then order Quiche and it was dry and tasteless. The sausage was burned on the top hard to cut and eat. So they ordered a burger and the other person had... More

I have eaten here several times, it is always good. Typical type of diner with regulars that are known by all of the staff. Can't beat the prices for their dinner specials, most come with soup or salad. Soup selections are limited but every one I have had has been delicious. Sandwiches are great also. Service is friendly, usually very... More

My wife and I have been here several times from our trips from Syracuse, and can't imagine a better diner than here. Their Cuban sandwich is excellent, I've had it twice, just as good as Miami, never left this palce hungry or unhappy.

I needed a good place to have a breakfast meeting this morning. Found the Mt. Hope Dinner on a recommendation from a friend. I found this to be a clean well kept family dinner. I was waited on promptly with hot coffee and a a fairly broad menu. I ordered their 2-2-2 special. My eggs were cooked correctly and we're... More
