This diner does not serve "diner" food--- they have great daily specials and the portions are enough for two meals! Desserts are delicious--all made on site. This is one of my new favorite places for lunch-- prices are reasonable and food is fresh and service is great! You won't be disappointed!

I've eaten here MANY times and have had an excellent meal each visit! From traditional Greek dishes to old favorites, everything is delicious. The gyro was unbelievable, topped with homemade tahini sauce,YUM!

Many of the desserts are homemade too, baklava, cheesecake!!!

The service is outstanding too. Attentive but not overbearing. On the ball!!!

Cost, oh what a great deal! Large portions, great value!!

Owner even stopped at each table to see how guests were doing!

I had the chance to eat breakfast and lunch at Central Diner. They also serve dinner and are open for late night snacks/meals. The staff are very friendly and willing to adjust the menu to your likes/needs. The food is definitely diner food, so it's good for diner food. I will return.

Discovered this gem of a restaurant yesterday evening. Great food, friendly & efficient staff, so clean it shines. It's obvious the family who owns it takes pride in their business, and rightly so. Now about the food. It's all homemade. I had eggplant parmesan with a side of spaghetti & a fresh crispy salad. Delicious. The marinara sauce was excellent. There was enough left over for 2 more meals. A bargain at $13.95. My friend had stuffed peppers and very much enjoyed them. But beware, the food here is so good it's impossible to eat with restraint.
