I was put off going here by the location but if your looking for a kid friendly place with hearty portions - you could do a lot worse.

Staff don't appear to be very happy about working Sunday morning. Hostess didnt say two words to us, but the server was ok.

Breakfast decent. No complaints but nothing special either.

The Thruway at first appears to be one of the many roadside restaurants which are usually shunned. Until you see the expansive parking lot full of cars and people waiting at the door. However, parking space is always available and seating times are mercifully short. Then comes a most impressive menu, a smiling and pleasant hostess, a cup of steaming aromatic coffee and you are ready to order. The breakfast selection is impressive and caters to every palate and appetite. I ordered pancakes, bacon, eggs and hash brown. All were most scrumptious, fresh off the griddle and ready to eat. BTW the pancake syrup was delicious too. Coffee cups were often refilled and, oh yes, orange juice was also provided. And the price? UNDER $10. Now that's a deal!

Breakfast menu was large and included the standards. The food was well cooked and to your specific requests. It is worth mentioning that it was high in sodium.
The staff were prompt and efficient while serving in a friendly and welcoming style. There was no rushing the people to turn over the table. In fact, they were generous with their coffee refills making it a good place to meet for a comfortable visit.
It. Is good diner food in a comfortable environment at a handy location.

I went to Thruway for a dinner with friends a couple of weeks ago - I read the reviews by accident as I was only looking for directions - but stopped to read the tripadviser comments at the same time. Yes the food is diner style - but the plates were quite full and the prices were reasonable. If you want fine dining - this is not the place for you. If you expect good italian food - again - this is not the place for you. But if you are hungry and want a meal on the way home - it is not bad. The people that served us were very helpful and attentive - from the woman that seated us to the person that served us. It is roadhouse food - not gourmet. I stayed away from the hamburgers owing to the previous tripadvisor posts. The lasagna that I had was not that great - but again - I wasn't expecting it to be. It filled me up. That was the goal.
