We have eaten here several times, mostly for breakfast and the place is ALWAYS packed! The portions are HUGE, so bring an appetite! Loved the 2 different kinds of french toast I have had, one was a special with pecans, strawberries and honey syrup...the omelettes are good, but a ton of food! My family goes to dinner every Friday with all of the cousins and this is a fan favorite place to go! Giant dessert and great greek dishes make this a great place with a lot to choose from and it's close to home! Very friendly servers and owners are usually on-site as well.

Not what I expected from a "diner and grille" establishment. I was pleasantly surprised. The service was great and so was the food. We actually went back a few hours later for dessert. I suggest sharing a dessert because they are enormous!

Rated in top 5 in Pgh??, took my sister there for her birthday. Place is big but noisy. The sound seems to carry. Got seated next to a large family group with a couple of screamers in high-chairs, had to move outside which was fine as it was a nice nite. So if you want to take your honey out for a quiet dinner and a glass of wine, don't go there.
On the plus side the menu offered a lot of selections, portions were generous, service was great. They offer a military discount and no charge for birthday dessert. Location is outside the city towards the airport, next to Red Roof Inn. It offers breakfast which would be good.

We were in Pittsburgh for one night and stopped by this diner before we continued our cross country drive. A friend had recommended it to us and we were glad that we took the time to find it. Great food, freshly brewed strong coffee, and very attentive service. The restaurant looked new and was super clean. We also noticed that they have several Greek dishes and sweets that looked delicious!
