Wait staff was great, owner very friendly, food was excellent. When I eat at diners, I always ask for advice as to what to eat, and I'm glad that I did. Cheddar bacon wrap with chicken was good!

Terrible food and service! The people at the door were rude to my dad and refused to seat him (he's 83) merely because my sister was parking the car. Seriously? There were 6 open tables! Once we were finally seated the waitress was rude. Worst of all the over medium eggs I ordered were runny - which is a health... More

The raspberry french toast was out of this world. Gotta get it!! We were just passing through Pittsburgh and wanted to get a real taste of the town. Checked out Diners, Drive Ins and Dives....and ...voila....Dor Stop. Small and ever so good!

This is the perfect place to stop in for your basic breakfast fare. Good coffee. Perfect eggs to order. Nothing fancy. Just perfectly done eggs, french toast, bacon, pancakes. Located in Dormont on Potomac.

Family took us to this busy breakfast spot. They rely a lot on the Guy Fieri factor but honestly they are fantastic even without his endorsement. One of us had a crab Benedict (REAL CRAB, not krab) and the other a two pancake combo with sausage. Pancakes were fantastic with a little crispness from brown sugar. Crab Benedict I would... More

This is the quintessential small-town American diner. Stopped in for breakfast at 9:30 on Memorial Day weekend and needless to say the place was packed. But the staff was quick and courteous and we were seated in under 15 min. We ordered a Philly Steak omelette, potatoes o'brien and a stack of oatmeal raisin pancakes, all with a range of... More

One of our waiters at another restaurant in pittsburgh recommended the Dor-Stop for breakfast and we are glad we listened. The place was hopping and super efficient and Friendly! The server was super savy and even recognized that my father is one of those gruff on the outside but good person and the inside and gave him a hard time... More

Stopped in for breakfast one day on a whim, liked it so much came back the next day. Hotcakes, omelettes, french toast, all great. Staff made us new-comers feel like regulars. Only complaint was that I wasn't able to try the coconut cream pie for lunch due to flight home. Next Pittsburgh visit will definitely stop back.

Thank Bob O
