Description: DeLuca's in the Strip District of Pittsburgh is the original DeLuca's Diner. Our diner is an old fashioned breakfast and lunch spot that has been in business since 1950, with the recent owners now operating DeLuca's Diner for over 30 years maintaining the nostalgic feel and look of the original diner. DeLuca's is located on Penn Avenue, just look for the rooster on top of our building!

DeLuca's is a Pittsburgh treasure. I take everyone who comes to visit to DeLuca's. Old fashioned good food. Fun for kids and grown-ups. Great Eggs Benedict, french toast, breakfast burritos and sticky buns. Big menu and generous portions.

Excellent chicken and waffles with the chicken being very tasty. Good service despite being very busy on our Labor Day visit.

It was a busy Sunday when we arranged to meet friends at DeLuca's for brunch/lunch.

I guess if you are a local, you know the rules, but there was no signage, the others in line didn't know what to do. So we waited 30 minutes, got to the front of the line, and were asked if we wanted counter seating, which we happily accepted. When the rest of our party arrived, they just went directly into the restaurant, bypassing the line, and were seated with us at the counter. There were also empty booths, but still a very long line outside.

Our food was very slow to come. But when it did come, the value was excellent, and the quality high.

Maybe this was an exceptional weekend, but better organization would have made our visit more enjoyable.

Excellent food, excellent service. It is a must-go. On Saturdays, it is very crowded, as the is a street market in the neighborhood.
