We stopped at the Gateway Diner the other day for breakfast. We had eggs and home-made corned beef hash and an omelette. Both were very good. Our server was very nice.

The food here was great, fast and the waitress was so friendly. Our group was a big one and we were discussing family medical issue taking place and we were not rushed or interrupted.

Terrific waitstaff. The maitre d was hilarious and hospitable. Food was plentiful and fresh. It's a diner so they were forgiven for not cooking with noticeable seasoning. A tasty experience at Anywhere, USA.

We stopped or lunch on the way home from the airport. I was hoping for an authentic Greek Gyro. It was mediocre! Pita was not fresh, meat was pan heated, not on a spit. Tasziki sauce was tasteless. I'm still looking for a good gyro...More
