My wife ordered Roasted Chicken which came with Salad Bar. She tasted chicken and it was spoiled. Told waitress. Waitress said she would tell manager. No manager ever came. Waitress said she would remove cost of chicken. She took off $1.30, and charged full price for salad bar as a meal. My wife could not eat any more after tasting... More

Stopped by for lunch. Ordered a pastrami sandwich on rye bread. It arrived with just 3 extremely thin slices of pastrami. This had to be "the smallest pastrami sandwich in the entire U.S." If you put all 3 of the tiny slices on top of each other, their total thickness would have been less than 1/8" thick! The sandwich came... More

John's makes an excellent breakfast sandwich served with potatoes. Service is good, coffee is good and the TV news is on in the morning. My favorite is pork roll, egg and cheddar on sourdough toast.

I go to this restaurant at least once a week, usually it is two or three times. We go for breakfast, lunch, dinner and sometimes even just for coffee and dessert. The food is very good, and I love the service and feeling like a family member. I have a few waitresses that I consider my friends. There is a... More

I don't care for diners, but we really enjoyed our meal. It was very late at night & I was so thankful someplace was open! I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. My meal had pancakes, eggs, and ham. The ham was a nice thick piece (not paper thin like they usually serve in diners around here), and was... More

I liked this place. Food was good. Prices were reasonable. They had a very good salad bar with good variety. Service was good as well. I would come here again.

We meet friends here for dinner a few times a year and we have never been disappointed. Last week I ordered the Greek platter and salad and it was delicious. The salad bar is good too, and prices are fair. There are no stairs to climb to get in the diner, which makes access super easy for someone who is... More

We were craving a SE PA breakfast and this place hit the mark. Quick service, well executed eggs, golden hash browns, crispy Scrapple and Juicy Pork Roll for a fair price. Simple and delicious. Our plates went back clean.
