I real diner that specializes in breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is presented well. Tastes great and good size portions. The staff was way above average. Very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely add this to one of my regular stops. Maybe again this week.

My family & I love going to Troys. Their Salads are fresh and large enough to share. They have the best waitress that always welcome you and make you feel special!! You never have to ask for that second cup of coffee. The waitress are very conscientious about making sure you always have a full cup!! 😊 I've met clients... More

Decent, quick and cheap food. I really wasn't blown away by anything, from the service to the food to the decor. It felt like every small breakfast restaurant we've ever been to. I was disappointed in their menu. When we were searching for restaurant options in the area, this one stood out because of the promised Greek options, yet there... More

Found out about this place from old friends from high school. A Family owned restaurant with fantastic food and great service. Love their Corned beef hash and eggs breakfast.

People are always friendly, food is always good! Every dish I have tried has been very good. Sunday mornings are crowded!

We were tired of our hotel breakfast and saw Troy's on trip advisor. The food was good. It came out very fast and the waitress was very attentive. I would definitely eat here again.

Great service from the staff. The food here is horrible. The worst pancakes I have ever tasted. Will never come back.

If you're looking for a place close to but not in the beaches for breakfast that's good, but not great - this is your place. Breakfasts come fast and fairly decent here. Their dinners and lunches have been going down hill as of late, though, so I'd stick to breakfast if coming here.

We dine at Troy's in the Clairemont area of San Diego about every three weeks or so. I'm sure they must know us on sight because I've been coming here for their excellent Souvlaki and Eggs combo for over twenty years or more. It is a fabulous dish and they prepare it unsurpassingly well. I should hasten to add that... More
